Amy Winehouse was a celebrated music artist. But the music industry lost her 10 years ago. To mark the tenth year of Amy Winehouse's Back in Black, a fan contest is started.
Proceeds from the fan contest will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The foundation supports children and young adults who are in need through music education and therapy. The foundation empowers children, promotes awareness and works hard to prevent the misuse of drugs and alcohol. This is Amy Winehouse's legacy after losing her life to the effects of drugs and alcohol.
The soul songstress lost her life to alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011. Her album Back to Black became UK's best-selling album of the 21st century for a time.
Now, Island Records (Winehouse's record label) and album producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi leads Winehouse's music legacy, cites Crave Online. The goal? Take the Back to Black Challenge if you think you have the music chops
How do you join? Go to the Amy Winehouse Vevo Channel on Youtube and search for the "Back to Black" new lyric videos. Also search for "Rehab", "Tears Dry" and "Just Friends." Each video has a download link that contestants can use. The download itself is the original backing track.
Fans and "Back to Black" contestants have all they need. They have the lyrics on hand and the downloaded track. They can then film and make their own covers of the songs. They need to upload it to Youtube.
Producers Ronson and Remi are going to judge the entries and will give the winner the chance to record their song performance in the studio. In addition, they are going to have their music video debut on Island's Youtube Channel.
Fans and music competitors do not only have the chance to work with Amy Winehouse's own producers but also be able to help the Amy Winehouse Foundation to continue her legacy towards music education.
