Winehouse rose to prominence with her heavily jazz and R&B influenced roots music. Her 2003 debut, "Frank", was well received by critics, but it was her 2006 CD, "Back To Black" that earned Winehouse 5 Grammy Awards--including Best New Artist and Record Of The Year.
Following the success of "Back To Black", however, Winehouse experienced a string of difficulties with drugs and alcohol, her health, and the law. Winehouse had only recently reemerged and was performing again but, following a June concert in which she was booed heavily, Winehouse cancelled the remainder of her European tour.
Winehouse was said to be preparing material for her follow up album and, most recently, was selected by Tony Bennett to record a track with him for his upcoming "Duets II" CD, expected to be released in September.
Winehouse had often spoken about recording a Christmas album, however the only holiday track we have from her was taken from a television show performance a few years back. Amy's take on "I Saw Mummy Kissing Santa Claus" was included on the 2008 Dutch collection "The Best Of Christmas".
Here is a fan video/slideshow of Amy's Christmas song.
