You have seen it coming. But they do not want to believe it. Fans of soul singer, who died at the age of 27 years in London on Saturday to mourn in front of the house of the stars in Camden.
It's a warm summer day, the first in a long time. The sun is shining on the beautifully restored house in the expensive residential area in north London. People come over on a Sunday stroll. "Actually, everything could be so nice for Amy," said a young woman, and looks at the two-story building in which the singer Amy Winehouse is just a few hours before death. But something went wrong.
As if they want to award her more courage and zest for life in retrospect, many fans have resigned sunflowers on a tree outside the house.Although there are a few bunches of mourning, but the sunflowers are definitely in the majority.
The mood on this Sunday afternoon in front of the place of death of the singer's weird. Too beautiful, peaceful and calmly appear the day and the area in order to imagine what must have happened in the alcohol and drug problems, depression and self-hatred-ridden musician. People just keep on talking in a whisper. Some journalists and camera crews are there. Yes, one is shocked that the soul diva has died at the age of 27 years suddenly. But surprised? No, not really.
"Somehow, we can see that coming, unfortunately," says the 26-year-old Jonny Quick. With his 24-year-old girlfriend Belgin Kurtulmus he has made the long journey from a suburb of London. "We have come to pay her last respects to one." There is a constant coming and going. Young and older fans, some in outfits reminiscent of the inimitable style of Winehouse herself.
