Amy Winehouse, 5 times Grammy-Winning, Singer, Dies 27

Amy Jade Winehouse (September 14, 1983 – July 23, 2011 London) was an English singer-songwriter known for her powerful contralto vocals and her eclectic mix of musical genres including R&B, soul and jazz.

Amy Winehouse cause of death
Over 3 months later, on October 26, coroner ruled her death accidental, by cosuming too much alcohol. Her blood alcohol level was 5 times over legal limit.

Substance abuse and mental health issues
Winehouse's battles with substance abuse were the subject of much media attention. In various interviews, she admitted to having problems with self-harm, depression and eating disorders. In 2005, she went through a period of drinking, heavy drug use, violent mood swings and weight loss. People who saw her during the end of that year and early 2006 reported a rebound that coincided with the writing of Back to Black. Her family believes that the mid-2006 death of her grandmother, who was a stabilising influence, set her off into addiction. In August 2007, Winehouse cancelled a number of shows in the UK and Europe, citing exhaustion and ill health. She was hospitalised during this period for what was reported as an overdose of heroin, ecstasy, cocaine, ketamine and alcohol.

Rest in Peace.Your music will be missed. There's a lot permisiveness(social) and feelings of entitlement that allows people with money to obtain things that others can not.Where we must recognize those that need help, those that need help must want and allow to be helped. My experience, I spent over $30,000 on rehab for a relative,(multiple admissions, I had great hopes yet, he passed away from overdose.

Bless your heart. Thank you for sharing.

What a shame! Sadly some can never be mature enough to understand someone with addiction, depression & the loss of family or friends dying. Family should have stepped in and signed her in for at least 72 hours. What's the real sad thing here is that we live in the USA & you can't get loved ones help and mental ill patients have gotten a raw deal in the USA and they do not get help. We also are looking the battle with not just drugs but medication overdose and doctors mistreating their patients and til they charge some nothing will change! Michael Jackson, Anna Nicole Smith & Her Son & in the past 5 years many more stars and people in general dying from this and its so wrong. I didn't really like her music but she could sing and such a great loss. May she rest in peace & blessings to the family~

I don't like the kind of music she sang (too young and hip for me). But, I give her a full credit for her achievement. She won 5 Grammy's in her 20's. She released her Grammy Award wining album when she was 22. 99.99% of people in the world cannot even come close to what she had achieved. If you don't agree with me? win a Grammy, and we'll talk. I don't know much about her music, but I know the world lost a very special talent. We are not surprised that she passed, but we are shocked as well.

no sympathy she had the 'resources'to sort herself out,Not my kind of music etc so cant say i will miss her. Good riddance

Re: Amy Winehouse, 5 times Grammy-Winning, Singer, Dies 27

Ooh~ You are a big boy. At least one of your family members will die of similar problem. Remember this when the day comes.

Re: Amy Winehouse, 5 times Grammy-Winning, Singer, Dies 27

I don't think she was all that talented.....or it was difficult to notice it thru the drug haze she emitted....
