How time flies.

Friday marks 10 years since the amazingly talented British singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home.

The English songstress was known for her fierce cat-eye makeup and her deep, soulful voice that touched millions of fans.

She was only 27 years old, the news was shocking and very sad.

Her final recording was a duet with American singer Tony Bennett for his album, Duets II, which was released later that same year.

The new Amy Winehouse documentary, narrated by her mother, premiers on the 10th anniversary of her death.

The BBC documentary will premiere July 23.

Narrated by her mother Janis Winehouse-Collins, “Reclaiming Amy” features home footage, family pictures and interviews with three of her closest friends.

Commissioned by Britain’s BBC Two and BBC Music, the film chronicles the U.K. singer’s rise to fame and struggles with addiction.

Winehouse-Collins has never spoken on camera about her daughter.

‘It’s only looking back now that I realize how little we understood,” Winehouse-Collins says in the film, Reuters reported. “She was prone to addiction; she could not stop herself. It’s a very cruel beast.”

The 59-minute documentary has been criticized by the family.
