Pass The Popcorn: Watch 14-Year-Old Amy Winehouse Sing A Jazzy Happy Birthday In A New Clip From 'Amy'
At this point, you’re all probably teeming with excitement for the upcoming Amy Winehouse documentary Amy. And while there’s certainly been no shortage of intimate previews and clips, what’s one more for your mind? Today’s glimpse at the anxiously anticipated film comes in the form of some rare home footage, pointing the spotlight on a fledgling British soulstress at what appears to be a slumber party where she belted out a jazz-inflected rendition of “Happy Birthday” for the young lady behind the lens. It’s Winehouse in full-croon and a pretty fitting beginning for a modern soul legend, whose legacy and backstory will soon be the subject of one of the summer’s most coveted documentary treatments. Amy hits theaters this Friday, July 3rd, just a few weeks short of the fourth anniversary of her tragic passing. Below you can watch a clip of young Amy Winehouse going the full Monroe in a short excerpt from the documentary, which should provide you with an inkling of what brought our very own Questlove to screen the film privately for a fortunate few. Hit the silver screen houses this Friday for the full script.
