Amy Winehouse, an iconic singer of her era, showcased her brilliance with a captivating rendition of “Back To Black” at Glastonbury. In this performance, the troubled yet immensely talented London songstress exudes both sensuality and vulnerability. Her expressive contralto vocals add weight to the emotional depth of the song.

Backed by a red-hot band, Winehouse shared the story of her doomed romance with ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil, a recurring theme in her second album, which shares the same name as the song. Her delivery of the soulful hit was both brilliant and occasionally distracted, creating an eerie air to the performance. Given her tragic passing just four years later, this rendition became a poignant snapshot of Winehouse’s unparalleled artistry.

Let’s watch Amy’s version of “Back To Black” in the video below, which has garnered an impressive 8.6 million views.

In the comments, fans have left touching tributes to the late soul icon, with sayings like “This song was one of the first ‘current’ pop songs I heard (I listened to a lot of old music) and it’s honestly shaped my music taste! She was such a legend.”

Many other viewers felt nostalgia and paid attribute to a music legend with her extraordinary voice, saying, “I can’t imagine how many of us would like to back in time to enjoy seeing Amy sings one of the saddest songs ever written live once again. I hope I hadn’t made you cry for what I said, but this song has a special meaning for who we had to deal with tough times in our lives. By the way, Amy’s legacy will always be inmortal.”

Winehouse’s “Back to Black,” penned by the singer herself, emerged as her signature song, reaching number 8 in her homeland and becoming her second-highest selling solo UK single.
