R.I.P: Amy Winehouse Found Dead At 27....
Amy Jade Winehouse, A singer that stepped on the scene in 03' with her soulful debut "Frank", has been found dead at the age of 27 this morning. It is reported that at approximately 3:54 pm local time (BST, UTC+1) on 23 July 2011, two ambulances were called to Winehouse's home in Camden, London. Shortly afterwards, the Metropolitan Police confirmed her death. There is currently an open investigation to determine the cause of death, which is described by police as unexplained.
With this coming as a shock to many in the industry praying and hoping that the "Back To Black" singer would make a complete 360 and get back to giving us what she was meant to bring, Here at SAU we want to absolutely celebrate the music she left here with us. Last year I actually had the opportunity to have a nice chat with the singer before an interview at the beginning of the year, and I must say that not only was she the most welcoming person without the "Industry mentality" she also gave great words of inspiration at points. Below are excerpts from our conversation. RIP Amy Winehouse.
