The BBC called her "the pre-eminent vocal talent of her generation." But on a stormy December night in 2006, before the world saw her as a superstar, she was simply Amy Winehouse, playing an acoustic set in a tiny church for an Irish TV music series. Witness that evening's searing performance, featuring songs from the album, Back To Black, including "Rehab" and "You Know I'm No Good." Then hear, in her own words, how the influences of Mahalia Jackson, Thelonious Monk, and even Salt-N-Pepa helped her forge her own jazz pop style. (Source: Smithsonian Channel)
