This morning at 3:54 in London, England, Grammy winning singer Amy Winehouse was found in her apartment. Winehouse was only 27 and joins an already long list of my musicians who’s life was cut short at the young age of 27. Winehouse had dealt with a drug and alcohol addiction for years and while the details of her death have not been made public yet, it is assumed she lost the battle with her addictions and her demons. Weeks earlier, Amy Winehouse had performed her final concert in Kalmegdan, Belgrade. It was reported that she left rehab early to go on tour and at her final concert, Winehouse was disoriented and forgot the words to her song “Valerie”.
Rest in peace, Amy Winehouse September 14, 1983-July 23, 2011
