Since Amy Winehouse's tragic death in 2011, artists everywhere have mourned the loss of the talented musician, remembering her legacy through her music. The latest to honor her was British singer Sam Smith, who paid a touching tribute to Winehouse during his Lollapalooza set this weekend.

After saying, "This is for you, Amy," Smith proceeded to sing one of Winehouse's most popular tunes, "Tears Dry On Their Own." Although Smith is no stranger to cover songs, including the Marvin Gaye hit "Ain't No Mountain High Enough" and Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love," his Winehouse rendition truly struck an emotional chord all its own.

Check out a snippet of his beautiful performance, below.
