The Amy Winehouse Foundation has set up a scholarship at the Sylvia Young Theater School, where a 13-year-old Amy auditioned with her rendition of the jazz classic “On the Sunny Side of the Street” and studied voice. “It would be wonderful to find another Amy,” the school’s founder told Reuters, “but there was only one Amy.” Which is likely why the scholarship is open to all money-strapped students, not just those looking to sing — after all, young Amy did dance and later took to wearing ballet flats, though she wasn’t exactly the greatest fan of theater actors.
