It was the 23rd of August, 2011, when a star that burned brighter than most finally burned out, leaving the world with nothing but echoes and stardust. Months before Amy Winehouse's passing, tabloids everywhere were plastered with the her latest rendezvous — media vulgarity trying so hard to paint her as a hopeless junkie who happened to have an amazing voice. At that point, according to interviews, Amy believed the same and went on the path of destruction that ultimately took her life at the age of 27. It was tragic.
Amy Winehouse was a blessing to the music scene. She was a petite, tattooed girl with a lioness for a soul and a supernova for a voice. There may never be someone as reckless, wild, beautiful, and multi-talented as her for a long time. Let the records keep playing and let the big voice haunt you like a dream.
