Adele remembers Amy Winehouse on the late singer's 33rd birthday


Adele, who has long cited Amy Winehouse as a musical influence, paid tribute to the late singer on what would have been her 33rd birthday. "Happy birthday Amy," she wrote, adding an "X" to signify a kiss and attaching a photo of a grinning Winehouse.

"Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about British music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blasé about the whole thing," Adele wrote at the time.
