Marking 10 years since the death of the ever remarkable British musician, BBC Two and BBC Music announce an Amy Winehouse documentary entitled, Amy Winehouse: 10 Years On, to celebrate her life and legacy. The behind-the-scenes film is largely told from the point of view of her mother, Janice Winehouse.

“I don’t feel the world knew the true Amy, the one I brought up,” stated the singer’s mother in the press release. “I’m looking forward to the opportunity to offer an understanding of her roots and a deeper insight into the real Amy.”

Winehouse made waves for her generation, releasing two critically acclaimed albums, Back to Black and Frank. Struggling with alcohol and drug abuse for several years, the singer died on July 23, 2011, at age 27, from alcohol poisoning.

Suffering from Multiple Sclerosis, Janis Winehouse was motivated to shine a light on her daughter’s story from a perspective that the world has yet to hear. Janis worries that one day she won’t be able to keep Amy’s memories as her illness progresses, so she has taken the opportunity to immortalize her daughter’s remembrance on film.

The 60-minute documentary will showcase an intimate portrayal of the incomparable musician with never-before-seen footage and photos. A three-CD compilation of her performances at the BBC will be presented along with the feature and airs on BBC Two later this year.
