Amy Winehouse and his works left a marked mark among fans (or not) of music. In turn, her passing shocked the world and further marked those who followed her frequently.
Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27 in her London apartment.
This September 14, 2021, the singer and artist would turn 38 years old. In this note, we review the most important points of his career.
Born in Southgate, a neighborhood located in the north of London, He had his first musical approach, like many artists, through his family.
Mitchell Winehouse, his father, used to sing the songs of Frank Sinatra, so little Amy did nothing but imitate him (clue to the name of her debut album). But it was not there: he sang even at school, to the point of interrupting the teachers.
Having attended two theater schools (in one she was expelled for getting a piercing) and formed her own rap band, at thirteen she was given her first guitar.
He began composing, playing in London bars and recording home demos. One of them was given by his partner at that time to a music producer, thus becoming, Simon Fuller, at the beginning of his professional career.
The contract lasted until 2002, the year in which he met, through a representative of Island Records, to its producer Salaam Remi.
A year later, on October 20, 2003, under the production of Remi, Amy Winehouse would publish her debut album: Frank.
But everything would end up exploding a few years later. Fast forward to 2006. Amy Winehouse released her second album, Back to Black, a monster that was all the rage at the time and still is.
Sold more than 20 million copies around the world, became the album best seller of the 21st century in the UK and Rolling Stone introduced it between the top 500 music albums of all time.
With him, Winehouse was nominated for categories of the Grammy awards, being the winner in five of them. However, there her drug problem would begin to become visible: Winehouse could not attend the ceremony because her visa was withheld for drug use and abuse.
His last recording was published on September 20, 2011 in a song together Tony Bennett for his album Duets II.
“When we were making the record she knew she was in a lot of trouble, she wasn’t going to live. And it wasn’t the drugs. It was the alcohol towards the end,” Bennett later declared.
And it is that on July 23, 2011, Amy Winehouse was found dead in her apartment in London, the product of a alcohol poisoning.
Without a doubt, it was a death that shocked everyone, both in music and in the rest. Yet still Amy Winehouse, with her music, with Back to Black, continues to be an artistic reference for many and, ultimately, an inspiration for a generation of young new musicians.
