The troubled singer was found dead today in her north London home. She was only 27 years old. The singer had been very open about her battles with drugs and alcohol throughout the years, but the cause of death has yet to be connected to either one. More from the BBC:
"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.
On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.
Inquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained."
Amy's bereaved parents Mitch & Janis as well as her brother together issued this statement:
"Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives," the Winehouse family tells Us Weekly in a statement. "We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time."
Amy's autopsy has reportedly been scheduled for tomorrow and Scotland Yard is telling the media not to make any assumptions until then.
Despite her troubles, it's still really sad to know that such talent was snuffed at such a young age. In tribute to her passing, here's a list of Amy's greatest hits.
