    StoryCast 21: On Stage with Amy Winehouse

    StoryCast 21: On Stage with Amy Winehouse

    In 2021, Sky News is marking some of the century’s biggest news events through the personal stories of lives defined by unforgettable moments from the last 21-years.
    Episode 10 of the 21-part series is On Stage with Amy Winehouse.


    Three days before Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning, she made her final stage appearance alongside her Goddaughter and musical protégée Dionne Bromfield.
    Now for the first time, Dionne reveals the ‘Aunty Amy’ only she knew.
    A decade since Winehouse’s death, she remains one of the UKs top selling artists.
    She also remains eclipsed by the media portrayal: The icon, the beehive hairstyle, the bright lights, paparazzi, and addiction that ultimately destroyed her.
    'On Stage with Amy Winehouse' explores the Amy Dionne remembers, why it’s taken 10-years to process her death, and how finding a ‘sister’ in Winehouse has come to define her.

    ‘On Stage with Amy Winehouse' was produced by Rob Mulhern with Amy Hitchcock.
    Special thanks to Dionne Bromfield

Need Review

Despite the fact that I’m a geek, nerd and fanatic, this is a really great listen. I’ll forgive that Star Trek isn’t liked by some of the “cast”, it’s a really good way to keep up with what’s coming on telly. We love Stevie!
Hope that the Sky Sources are correct and that Madonna is at Glastonbury!
