Awww! We miss her!
Mark Ronson has revealed that his album Uptown Special will be dedicated to Amy Winehouse, sharing the news on Twitter.
Here's what he wrote to her in a handwritten note:
"Although I wish you were still here, I'm always thinking of you, inspired by you and your music lives on in myself and everyone who ever felt it."
Wow! Such heartfelt words!

Besides Amy, the album is also dedicated to Teenie Hodges and DJ Mehdi.
Mark decided to post the handwritten dedication note after a decision was made to leave the dedication notes off the album.
But this isn't the first time that Ronson has expressed such admiration for Amy.
Here's what he previously said about Amy in a past interview:
"She came with so many of those songs written. All I had to do was really arrange them. And then Back to Black and Rehab were the two that she wrote when we were together in New York—and Back to Black, I played her the music and she wrote the song in, like, an hour. So, I wish I kind of remembered more. And I wish, obviously, that we had made more music."
We think the whole world feels that way!
We lost a great talent when the Back in Black singer left the world, but we're glad her memory will always be preserved by her talented friends as well as the legacy she left behind with her awesome music.
So sad and yet also so inspiring! We LOVE how Mark is paying tribute to this spectacular lady!
