Amy Winehouse found dead at 27

Saturday July 23, 2011

Tragic waste of a phenomenal talent

Amy Winehouse has passed away at the age of 27.

The iconic singer was found dead at her North London home at around 4pm on Saturday.

Police have described the cause of her death as "unexplained", and the circumstances are being investigated.

The devastating news follows a tough few months for the Back To Black singer, who cancelled a European tour following a series of erratic public performances.

These included a "disastrous" performance in Belgrade in June where she was booed off stage.

She had been troubled by alcohol and substance problems throughout her career.
