Amy Jade Winehouse, più nota come Amy Winehouse (Londra, 14 settembre 1983 – Londra, 23 luglio 2011), è stata una cantautrice, stilista e produttrice discografica britannica.
Ha debuttato nel mondo della musica pubblicando, nel 2003, per l’etichetta discografica Island, l’album di debutto Frank, che riscuote un buon successo di pubblico e critica. Il vero successo arriva nel 2007, con l’uscita del secondo album Back to Black, che trainato da singoli come Rehab, Love Is a Losing Game e l’omonima traccia Back to Black ha scalato le classifiche mondiali, ottenendo un successo che l’ha portata alla vittoria di cinque Grammy Awards.
Intanto, l’artista ha fatto spesso parlare di sé per gravi problemi legati a droga, alcol e disordini alimentari che l’hanno portata a ritardare la realizzazione del suo terzo album fino alla prematura morte, avvenuta nella sua casa, a Londra. Assieme a Duffy ed Adele, era considerata una delle esponenti della nuova generazione del soul bianco, della quale è ritenuta la precorritrice.
