Amy Jade Winehouse (14 September 1983 – 23 July 2011). A remarkable singer/songwriter who mixed various musical genres to produce her own unique and instantly recognisable sound. Her debut album, Frank (2003), was a critical success but her follow-up album, Back to Black (2006), led to five 2008 Grammy Awards, tying the then record for the most wins by a female artist in a single night, and made her the first British female to win five Grammys, including three of the general field "Big Four" awards: Best New Artist, Record of the Year and Song of the Year.
Amy died of alcohol poisoning, aged just 27. The BBC called her "the pre-eminent vocal talent of her generation." Rest in peace, Amy.
