British singer Amy Winehouse passed away today at the tender young age of 27! Another one gone too soon. Amy lived a very fast life and testified about it through her music. I'm sad today that she wasn't able to overcome her demons. We all battle something. I will remember her music, spirit and her INCREDIBLE instrument. I pray that she now has the peace that perhaps she's been looking for. My condolences goes our to her Mum and Dad and the rest of her family. RIP Amy Winehouse
Here's an article from another publication on the events that led to her death.
Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home in London, according to the London Daily Mail
The Back To Black singer was apparently found at the property by emergency services at 3:54 p.m. this afternoon, according to sources, and her death is being treated as ‘unexplained’ by police.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: “Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.”
The singer’s well-publicized battles with drink and drugs had haunted her career. They eventually led to her losing the sultry voice she was known for as evident in numerous of her previous performances.
Her father, Mitch, was reportedly on a flight to New York when news of her death broke, and took the next plane back to London.
Crowds have arrived in front of her home with flowers and teddy bears.
