The 27 year old English female singer/songwriter famous for her sultry voice and beehive hairdo, Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her apartmanet in Central London on July 23rd 2011. Amy Jade Winehouse was born 14 September 1983 in southgate London to a Jewish family. She received extensive publicity over her substance abuse and mental health issues. Police have described the cause of her death as “unexplained”.
“Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square shortly before 4:05 pm (1505 GMT) today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased,” a police statement said.
“On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.
“Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.”
Winehouse became world famous with the release of her “Back To Black” album in 2006 and her hit single “Rehab” which won her five Grammy awards. Winehouse had on occassion been booed on stage because she appeared too drunk to sing. Several of her perfomances had been cancelled. “Amy Winehouse is withdrawing from all scheduled performances,” a statement from her representatives said.
“Everyone involved wishes to do everything they can to help her return to her best and she will be given as long as it takes for this to happen.”
Am not saying this because she is dead, but personally I
was am a HUGE Amy Winehouse fan. I especially loved her artistic side and her video concepts (especially ‘Valerie’ Ft Mark Ronson). My favourite songs are ‘My Tears Dry On Their Own‘ and ‘You Know I’m No Good.’ Deep lyrics, those are. Sadly another young talent taken down by drug abuse. Lesson learnt for the rest of us I guess.
We’ll miss your sexy soul and sultriness. R.I.P Amy Winehouse.
