News just broke that 27-year-old British singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London apartment. The Daily Mail, BBC and other news sources have confirmed that the troubled singer was found at 4 p.m. local time. Her death is currently under investigation.
Winehouse, who struggled with drug addiction, had been keeping a low profile since canceling her European tour last month after a show in which she appeared to be extremely intoxicated. She was spotted earlier in the week at the iTunes music festival helping to promote her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield.
Winehouse burst onto the scene at the age of 20 with her critically acclaimed album, “Frank,” and became an international sensation with the release of her album, “Back to Black.” Known for her big voice, she easily mixed jazz, R&B, and soul music to craft her signature sound.
Amy Winehouse will be remembered not only for her personal demons, but also for her mesmerizing voice, intensely honest lyrics, and raw stage performance.
