Amazing Amy. The first trailer for the upcoming Amy Winehouse documentary is finally here.
The debut look at the film, titled simply Amy, offers an intimate peek into the late singer’s life, painting a picture from her childhood to the months up until her untimely death. Winehouse tragically passed away in July 2011 at the age of 27.
The clip opens with shots of the Grammy winner as a young girl. The vintage footage plays as she explains, “Singing has always been important to me but I never thought I would end up singing, I would be a singer.”
“I just thought, ‘I’m lucky that there is something that I can always do if I want to,'” Winehouse continues. “I’m so lucky like that… I’m not a girl trying to be star or be anything other than a musician.”
The “Rehab” singer infamously struggled with addiction, and was found with a toxic amount of alcohol in her system at the time of her death. Winehouse’s fame massively skyrocketed after the release of her celebrated 2006 album Back to Black, and she can be heard in the trailer saying that she was not looking for stardom.
“How big do you think you’re going to be?” an anonymous interviewer asks. “I don’t,” Winehouse responds. “I don’t think I’m gonna be at all famous. I don’t think I could handle. I would probably go mad, you know what I mean? I would go mad.”
Due out this summer, Amy also offers unseen shots of the singer in bed, on trips, and performing and recording music. Watch the first trailer for the film in the video above.
