Major news sources are reporting that Brtish singer Amy Winehouse is dead at the age of 27. The BBC states that the singer was found dead in her north London flat and the cause of death is yet to be explained.
Amy is an award winning singer and is most famous for her song Rehab on the album Back to Black.
The Guardian is reporting that the Metropolitan police said: “Police were called by London ambulance service to an address in Camden Square shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased. On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.”
Winehouse is also well known for her struggles with drug and alcohol abuse. She famously vacationed in Saint Lucia in 2008 and 2009 and performed at the St Lucia Jazz Festival in May 2009 where she was booed by the audience and did not finish her set.
The singer brought a lot of international attention to the island but there was debate that she was being exploited.
