It is a sad day for the music industry as another one of its talented stars has left us again. Jazz contemporary singer Amy Winehouse died last July 23, 2011 at the age of 27 much akin to Kurt Cobain who also died at the same age. The details if the death is yet unknown but it is not a hidden fact that she has suffered from drug and liquor problems and handful of personal and legal conflicts & battles in the past few years.

Winehouse shoot to fame in 2007 when her sophomore album "Back to Black" made it big in the States after she got 6 Grammy nominations and went home with 5 wins including 3 of the BIG 4 trophies - "Best New Artist", "Record of the Year" and "Song of the Year". Her most famous song still remains to be "Rehab" which has sold millions not just in the US and UK but also worldwide. My personal favorites aside from rehab are "You Know I'm No Good" and "Tears Dry On Their Own".

Truly such a wonderful and brilliant musical talent gone adrift. If only she was stronger in her battles in life, she should have been a regular concert fixture and record sales would have just keep on going. For where she may be right now, all we can do is pray and thank her for the brief yet superb time she shared with us. Let us make sure that her music lives on in the future to come. Goodbye Amy!
