After Amy Winehouse passed away, I knew immediately that this was a song the PS22 Chorus was going to cover, though admittedly wasn't quite sure how we were going to pull this off. I taught the chorus of the song to Alicea at our very first rehearsal in September, as we embarked upon our first performance of the year, "Titanium." When she was instantly able to pick up the tricky melody, I knew this was going to be something special.... She and the chorus did not let me down! This is, hands down, my personal favorite cover the PS22 Chorus of 2013 has done to date, and our tribute to truly one of the most talented vocalists of our generation. With that in mind, it seemed fitting to change the lyric from "Ava was the morning" to "Amy was the morning" for our rendition.

So sad that her illness took Amy away from us before her time, as she clearly had so much more to bring. Here we honor that devastating loss with a song she co-wrote with Stefan Skarbek called "October Song," which was based on the jazz classic "Lullaby of Birdland" by George Shearing and George David Weiss (under the pseudonym B. Y. Forster).

Rest in peace, Amy Winehouse....

And for all those who left a comment requesting a duet between Alicea and Christopher on the 2013 Auditions video, the epilogue to the video is for you....
