British singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment in London dated 23rd July. She was just 27.
The five-time Grammy winner was found dead in her north London home by emergency services around 3:54 PM local time.
The cause of her death is currently listed as "unexplained."
The troubled popstar has had very public battle with addiction to drugs and alcohol. Last month, the "Rehab" singer canceled her entire European tour after an on-stage meltdown in Serbia.
Winehouse also had a troubled marriage to Blake Fielder-Civil, who she divorced in summer 2009.
She is survived by her parents, Mitchell and Janis, her older brother and Alex.
One of my favorite songs from AW.
The Recording Academy paid their respects in the following statement, issued by President/CEO Neil Portnow:
"Five-time GRAMMY winner Amy Winehouse was a dynamic performer and musician who seamlessly blended rock, jazz, pop, and soul and created a sound all her own. Her rich, soulful and unique voice reflected her honest songwriting and earned her a devoted fan following, critical acclaim, and the genuine respect and admiration of her musical peers. She will forever be remembered for her immense talent, and her music will live on for generations to come. Our deepest sympathies go out to her family, friends, and fans during this difficult time."
