This July marks 10 years since the tragic passing of singer and artist, Amy Winehouse, one of the UK’s greatest music talents. Her story has been well told over the years, but now, looking back, her legacy lives on.

Amy led the way as a British female voice in reaching a worldwide audience. Although hugely talented in their own right, many of today’s biggest artists recognise this contribution to their own careers, including multi-award-winning singer-songwriter Adele. Legacy Of A Lioness: Amy Winehouse, a two-part special staring on July 17features personal accounts from UK female artists – including Emeli Sande, Jessie Ware, Mabel, Ella Henderson and Alexandra Burke – talking about how she has influenced them, how they hear her legacy living on in music today, and sharing their favourite songs of Amy’s.

Part two is broadcast on Sunday July 25, followed by Amy Winehouse At The BBC.

Amy’s life is being celebrated across the BBC with content and musical performances across TV, iPlayer and BBC Sounds, including documentary Reclaiming Amy and Amy Winehouse At Porchester Hall on BBC Two.

BBC Radio 6 Music broadcasts Amy Winehouse Artist Collection on July 20 and a Craig Charles Funk and Soul special on July 24. All programmes available on BBC iPlayer and BBC Sounds.
