Sunday, 24 July 2011
Five time Grammy award winner, Amy Winehouse has been found dead at her home with a suspected drug overdose.
London: Amy Winehouse, one of the most talented singers of her generation whose hit song “Rehab” summed up her struggles with addiction, died in London on Saturday at the age of 27.
Winehouse’s record label Universal said, “We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer. Our prayers go out to Amy’s family, friends and fans at this difficult time.”
The star had struggled with drink and drug problems throughout her career. Her most recent performance a month ago in Serbia, was booed of stage, and led to the cancellation of her entire European tour.
Reaction from around the world was shock at such waste of a true talent.
David Beckham said, “It’s very sad, she was such a talented girl, and a girl with such a huge future. Our hearts go out to her family, her loved ones.”
Kelly Osbourne , tweeted: “i cant even breath right now im crying so hard i just lost 1 of my best friends. i love you forever Amy & will never forget the real you!”
“Her rich, soulful and unique voice reflected her honest song writing and earned her a devoted fan following, critical acclaim, and the genuine respect and admiration of her musical peers,” said its president Neil Portnow.
It's a great loss to the world that the line, “They tried to make me go to rehab. I said ‘no, no, no’”, was so prophetic.
