In celebration of the life and musical legacy of [artist id="1742872"]Amy Winehouse[/artist], MTV will reach into its vaults and air an intimate performance from the singer, taped in 2007, when she stood on the verge of superstardom.
The rarely seen set — filmed in MTV's Times Square studios as part of the "45th at Night" live series — features Winehouse and her Back to Black backing band, the Dap-Kings, working their way through searing and soulful renditions of the songs that would soon become her biggest hits: "Rehab," "Back to Black," "Me & Mr. Jones" and "You Know I'm No Good." A collaboration between Winehouse and rapper Mos Def on the song "Love Is a Losing Game" will also be included in the broadcast.
The performance will air on MTV on Wednesday, July 27, at 6:30 p.m. ET/PT.
[article id="1667799"]Winehouse[/article], the British belter who rose to international fame thanks to her defiant hit "Rehab" (and the near-constant tabloid coverage of her personal life that followed), was found dead in her London home on Saturday, a grim discovery that quickly sent [article id="1667804"]shockwaves through the music industry[/article] and had many scrambling to find the right way to [article id="1667806"]sum up a career[/article] that burned so brightly ... and was extinguished far too soon.
In the time since her body was discovered, London police announced that an initial autopsy failed to reveal the [article id="1667860"]cause of Winehouse's death[/article] and that additional toxicology tests were needed. Those tests could take two to four weeks to complete.
