British singer Amy Winehouse, the 27-year-old British Jewish singer was found dead in her London home.
Police discovered the body of Amy Winehouse on Saturday after being called by ambulance services, while cause of the death is being treated as unknown and unexplained.
At this early stage, investigations continue into the circumstances of the Winehouse’s record label death, a police spokesman said.
A statement indicated, “We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer…our prayers go out to Amy’s family, friends and fans at this difficult time.”
Amy Winehouse was born on September 14, 1983 to a Jewish family with a history of jazz musicians. At the age of 16, she was found out by soul singer Tyler James and in 2003 her debut album “Frank” was released to general commendation. In October 2006, her second album “Back to Black” was released in UK and became the No.1 mark. It brought for Winehouse international fame.The album’s hit single “Rehab” has been called the anthem of celebrity trash culture.
In October 2007, Amy Winehouse and her husband, Blake Fielder-Civil were arrested in a hotel of Norway for possession of marijuana possession, but soon her fans hissed her on stage as she slurred her way through her gigs. She and her husband divorced in 2009.
Two months later she was photographed wandering barefoot on a London street, wearing only jeans and a bra and looking confused. Despite being refused entrance to the United States, Winehouse won five Grammy awards in February 2008 while the April 2008 saw her with mixed fortunes. She was nominated three times for the Ivor Novello awards in May and joined the elite ranks of music millionaires in the Sunday Times rich list with an estimated fortune of 10 million pounds.
In 2010, she was found guilty to common assault and public order charges at Milton Keynes Magistrates’ Court as Winehouse had assaulted theater manager Richard Pound after disrupting a performance of Cinderella at the Milton Keynes Theater in UK.
In the recent sightings, Amy Winehouse was looking healthier after her trip to Brazil in January 2011, which raised hopes of a new release in 2011.
The British singer performed “Boulevard of Broken Dreams,” a song from the 1934 film “Moulin Rouge” which has been covered most famously by Bennett during one of her Brazil tour in January 2011.
Winehouse—her trademark beehive hairdo and figure-hugging dress, struggled to perform her songs and keep her balance at the gig in the Serbian capital Belgrade, and on some tunes the audience did most of the singing.
Now the news of her death is a major setback for the artists, her associates and fans.
