The album was also shortlisted for the 2004 Mercury Music Prize.In the same year, she performed at the Glastonbury Festival – Jazzworld, the V Festival and the Montreal International Jazz Festival (7 July 2004, at the Club Soda).After she rose to fame, during an interview she expressed her dismissal towards the school by saying that she used to beg her father to allow her not to go and that she learnt nothing about being Jewish by going anyway.After toying around with her brother Alex's guitar, Winehouse bought her own when she was 14 and began writing music a year later."I think Amy could not get over the fact that Blake and I had had our son Jack.I think it hit her pretty hard." Amy Winehouse's Ex-Husband: "I Watched Her Die In My Arms"Add Amy's recent breakup with Reg to that emotional turmoil, and it seems reasonable that the singer may have been in a sad, dark place in the weeks leading up to her death."Being loved by a man and being in a committed relationship was clearly very important to Amy.Still, according to Blake's fiance, Sarah Aspin, whom he met and had a son with after breaking up with the singer, the couple always loved each other."She always loved him and he always loved her — but it was just never going to work.""Basically they couldn't live with each other and they could not live without each other.It is hard for me knowing he still loved her, but I do understand his feelings," said Sarah to the newspaper.
