In the following excerpt from Part 5 of an interview that John Altmon did with jazzarchive.org.uk, he talks about obtaining Amy on video at the '10 Room' a few years previously, and it also notes that they're currently watching the video during the interview ...

Altman starts playing a video
CB: Is that John Legend?

JA: Yeah, it was his first ever show.

CB: Wow… Where is this?

JA: It’s a club I ran called the 10 Room… They had no clue who he was.

CB: [Laughs disbelievingly] Was he discovered here?

JA: Yeah! And Amy Winehouse.

CB: I also saw that you worked with Will Smith?

JA: Yeah!
CB: What was that for?
JA: He performed at the 10 Room.

CB: He came here?!

JA: Yes! Uh, everyone came here. When they did the Amy Winehouse film, they said, “Do you have any footage of her?” And I said, “Well, it was before she got famous, so the only person who would have taken footage would be if somebody came down with a film camera.” And somebody did come down with a film camera, and he sent me all these that I hadn’t seen, about a year ago.

7:55 We’re watching footage of John Legend, then Will Smith, then Altman playing with Amy Winehouse.

~ Just something to keep a lookout for, here's a link to the interview ...
