Award-Winning Artist Amy Winehouse Dead

Amy Winehouse was found dead in her London home Saturday. Winehouse was only 27.

The cause of her death was not immediately known.

“Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained,” the Metropolitan Police said.

Winehouse is a Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter whose passion was jazz music. Her Back to Black album, released in the U.S. in 2007, thrust her to worldwide fame.

The British singer’s music career, however, was overshadowed by her long battle with alcohol and drugs. She also admitted to struggling with eating disorders and manic depression and made headlines for assaulting several persons.

She canceled her European tour last month after she was booed on stage for being late and appearing to be under the influence. The artist had checked into rehab weeks earlier.
