There is no question that Amy Winehouse brought in the new generation of the British Invasion; much like the Beatles, Amy Winehouse spearheaded a multitude of new artists that “crossed the pond” to American pop culture, topping charts and winning Grammy’s. Adele is another songstress who’s brilliant talent has helped her gain notariety worldwide. In a message on Adele’s blog As seen here she writes a tribute to Amy Winehouse, called “Amy Flies in Paradise,” a parallel to Amy’s song “October Song” which is about her pet bird who died.
In her post, Adele says “Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about british music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blase about the whole thing. i don’t think she ever realised just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming. although im incredibly sad about Amy passing im also reminded of how immensely proud of her i am as well. and grateful to be inspired by her. Amy flies in paradise xx”
