Published: Monday 6th Jul 2015 by David

The U.K. box office has been dominated by a documentary created to celebrate the life of the late singer Amy Winehouse.

Find out how below…

The Asif Kapadia project has now become the highest-grossing homegrown documentary in the market after it pulled in $580,000 from movie theatres in its opening weekend.

The release is set to go nationwide in the USA this weekend and chronicles the star’s rise to fame and her tragic passing at the age of 27.

The Hollywood Reporter adds:

“We are thrilled that audiences have come out en masse during a period of exceptionally fine weather to see Amy,” said Hamish Moseley, head of distribution at Altitude, which is handling the release. “It is testament to not only an incredible film, from some of the U.K’s leading filmmakers, but also to the unique talent and enormous lasting appeal of Amy Winehouse – we are delighted that audiences have chosen to celebrate the life of the truly talented musical icon.”

      Not Quite….. Her sound wasn’t original, Yet any white person who sings with a sprinkle of soul seems to get placed on a pedestal.

      I liked Amy and hated her ill timely death and She made good music.

      • truth(nicki the reason A.I. is cancelled and Meek playn ha!!) July 6, 2015

        Her sound was INDEED original! ????

      • @JanetCIARA_ July 6, 2015

        Maybe for white people….

        Yes her sound was very original. Name one singer thatshas her sound style and tone and raspy yet sultry voice….She could flip jazz into hip hop..pop into soul. She was truly a orivginal. Her music she wrote on her own played the guitar among many other instruments… That’s what makes an artist an original. And FYI she isn’t white she’s Jewish. Know more about your music history and see that isn’t just a black sound. Everybody has soul.

    I never understood how people wait after these celebs die to suddenly show support….same with whitney…

    it’s not like it was a secret these celebs were on major drugs….

    at least they are resting in peace now…..

    I remember feeling so shaken when Amy passed away because I knew I would never hear another great album from her. Her music and voice had so much soul. I am glad to see her legacy live on.

  4. @JanetCIARA July 6, 2015

    Damn, Only released in the UK… I would have totally went to see this documentary.
    May she RIP.

    Her best song was “will you still love me tomorrow”

    Am I the only one that thought that Amy had the same tone as Laureyn Hill?

    • TinaMinaj July 8, 2015

      LAURYN Hill you mean. Clearly don’t listen to a lot of her music if you don’t even know how to spell her name correctly.

      Aaliyah was never as big as Amy Winehouse. I’m tired of people making it seem like Aaliyah was a major artist when she was alive.

      • Kev Kev July 6, 2015

        She was boo. Without her showing Brandy and Monica how it was done first, there would be no Bee Hive. It’s not always about the vocal slayage, it’s also about relating to artistry and style. Both artist died at their peak and it would be interesting to see what the next chapter would’ve been in their careers.

      • AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig July 6, 2015

        @KevKev No-one can deny Ms Haughton’s impact on R&B, but let’s not act like Bey wasn’t on the come up too in the late 90’s – early 00’s. The hive have fvcked with Bey from day one, while Aaliyah was still around… So I don’t know why people feel the need to discredit either of them.

    Too bad “Flop Sleep” by Tranet is tanking down the charts here in the US! It fell off iTunes last week and hasn’t recovered! Cant wait for the next Billboard update. I’m gonna have a ball with the drop Tranet stans, so get ready!!! 😉

    • Sandra July 6, 2015

      No Sleeep is a huge flop. Only #67 on the charts after a 7 year hiatus. It didn’t chart in any other country other than the US. Local mess
