Amy Winehouse was found dead at home in Camden, North London at 4p.m last Saturday . The British singer was 27 years old. Medic's said she had been dead for several hours.
The star will be remembered as the best singer-songwriter of her generation creating tracks (pistas) like Rehab,Love is a Loving Game and Back to Black. Gordon Smart editor of "The Sun" said : "Her death is one of the darkest days in British music. A talent lost to addiction. A shock- but not a surprise."
Watch a video of the singer,then 18, celebrating her first deal (contrato) in 2002. The film was shot by East London cabbie (taxista) Russell Dalton in his taxi : "I asked if I could film her. She didn't mind at all (no le importó en absoluto) and started telling me about her songs and how she had bought a new guitar to celebrate her deal. You could tell she had star quality. She was so innocent, happy and full of beans (llena de energia) ...But she was also very modest . That's how I'll remember her." May she rest in peace.
