Is Amy Winehouse dead?

Yes, it has been confirmed that the Grammy-award winning musician Amy Winehouse is dead.

Winehouse became a big name with the album "Back to Black" which is a cocktail of pop, rock, jazz, and soul. It won her five Grammys.

Tweet: ddlovato Amy Winehouse.. So sad. Unfortunately the world lost an incredibly talented woman to such a powerful disease... addiction. #RIP

Amy Winehouse had a style all her own

Winehouse often had dark eye liner that curved up like Cleopatra, a unique beehive hairstyle and old-school nautical tattoos that gave her the brand and recognition that was all her own.

Amy Winehouse police report

In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: "Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased."

The police statement goes on to say, "On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene."

So far, the authorities are saying the death is 'unexplained.'

Amy Jade Winehouse

Winehouse was born September 14, 1983. She was an English singer-songwriter, known for her powerful voice and her range of styles of singing which were full of soul, kinda jazzy, a classical rock flavor, and R&B.

Signs of the end for Amy Winehouse

Earlier in the week Winehouse made a scene at her teenaged goddaughter Dionne Bromfield's concert at the iTunes festival.

Winehouse was initially in the crowd but in an effort to support Bromfield, a source said: 'Amy staggered onstage and grabbed the mic to beg the crowd to buy her protege’s new album.'

In June, Winehouse cancelled her European tour following a horrendous display at a concert of possible drugs and intoxication as she stumbled around in a daze.

A tribute to Amy Winehouse from journalist Robert Weller

"A nightengale is no longer singing," to paraphrase lyrics from her "In My Bed." She is already missed.
