Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse

A rising star who was at the top of her game, Amy Winehouse sadly succumbed to her personal demons.  The British singer died of alcohol poisoning on July 23, 2011 at just 27 years old.  At the time of her death, Amy’s album, ‘Back to Black,’ posthumously became the UK’s best selling album of the 21st century.  Just three years earlier, Amy said that she feared becoming part of the infamous 27 club, which includes Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, and Jimi Hendrix.
