The described troubled British Singer, Amy Winehouse, was announced dead after years of successful musical Carrier mixed with Controversy. Her Death was reported to take place at 15:54 BST on the 23rd of July, 2011.

Until her Death, she was a symbol of Artistic Success and Personal Controversy as evident in her two thrilling songs: Valerie and Rehabs, and a Reputation of substance abuse; respectively.

But it is the fascination with her raw Musical Artistic Talent that spans across the Globe going beyond the scandal to places where the interest is towards the thrilling sound of her voice on the Radio rather than how she Did not Live her life well.

Substance abuse

Amy Winehouse was tainted with accusations of Alcohol and Drug abuse. Several attempts by the Police to nail her with some forms of Charges were mostly neutralised for lack of evidence, except until recently, the 'Norway Saga' where she was fined three hundred and fifty pounds. One episode where she escaped the strong arm of the Law was the incident of '7Th May, 2008 Video Evidence' where she was said to be Smoking Cocaine.


Disastrous Performance in Belgrade

The serbia Performance during her last European Tour was publicise as the worst in recent time. She was reported to be Booed out of stage when it became evident that she was seemingly dizzy. The episode awoke the Initial Stigma which was expected to be minimal since it was evident that she just concluded a Rehab.

There couldn't be any other time to enjoy and appreciate her great Talent than now. Get your Copy!

Amy Winehouse Appealing Talent in 'Valerie'

She is such a Raw Talent that is capable of agitating your Nerves with just her natural voice and a Guitar as evident in her two Videos: 'Valerie' and 'Rehab'. There you find a woman expressing her Emotions in the manner of a musical Story. Small wonder then she is reputed for numerous Nominations, and a recipient of so many Awards.


Amidst all the Negatives, Amy Winehouse is a sourcess story in the area of her musical Carrier. Even though she had to battle with depression and self destructive Tendendies, she was able to bring out the best of her Music for us to enjoy. She should be remembered for that!

Amy Winehouse was a Singer and a Song Writer. Her major Success was from her 2006 Album 'Back to Black' credited with six Grammy norminations and Five Awards.

Let us let her Soul rest in Peace!

Lovely Article - I liked her, still do. She just fell into the wrong hands, which can happen to anyone of us and it seems the people (her management) weren't keeping enough of a close eye on her. She was damn too young to go like that, but her music will live on.

I like the Videos you posted. :)
