'Rehab' band Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings pay tribute to Amy Winehouse

Following the sad passing of Amy Winehouse today — the singer died of unknown causes at the age of 27 — Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings (and the entire Daptone Records Family) released a statement lamenting her loss. The band, who backed the singer in two of her most popular tracks, “Rehab” and “You Know I’m No Good,” issued the following message: “We are very sad to have lost Amy Winehouse today.  She was one of a kind and we were fortunate to have had the chance to make music with her.  She was always gracious and a pleasure to work with in the studio and on the road.  She brought a lot of people joy with her voice and her irreverent personality.  It is a tragedy that she was taken from us so soon when she had much more music to give.”

    Hi Ali,I’m glad that you liked the songs that I chose.I did enjoy Valerie by Amy Winehouse more than the original. Her voice was so great. There is a song that she sings as a duet with Tony Bennett that is also quite good, it’s named Body and Soul’, this too is also very jazzy.I tried not to pick songs that weren’t too puoplar, but songs that were generally known to the public.I’m glad that you enjoyed You and I which was by Lady Gaga. Everyone knows her for her unique style, but her voice is also spectacular. She too does a duet with Tony Bennett named The Lady is a Tramp’, they sound wonderful together as well.I look forward to hearing your native music. I look forward to communicating with you in future and trading more music! Sincerly,Alyssa
