Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse had a serious set of pipes- even at 14 years old! According to USA Today, a clip from the upcoming Amy Winehouse documentary Amy was just released online, and it'll blow you away.

Asif Kapadia, the director of Amy, spoke to ET about the scene. "There are a group of friends that she's wit...
