Amy Winehouse was born in London on the 14th of September 1983.
Her school teachers later complained she would disrupt the classroom by bursting into song!
When she was 9 years old she started attending Theatre School and by the tender age of 13 she was already working in the music industry as a showbiz journalist and singing in a band.
At 16 she started singing with the National Jazz Youth Orchestra, and by 18 she had been signed by a top agent in the music and television industry.
Shortly afterwards she sign a publishing deal with giant label EMI.
The boss of the giant Island label heard her singing round about this time and there was a bit of a tussle between EMI, Island and Virgin Records, with all three making moves to get her to sign a recording contract.
