Today is fulfilled one more year after the death of Amy Winehouse, who curiously died at the age of 27, like Robert Johnson, Brian Jones, Jim Morrison, Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin and Kurt Cobain; the so-called ‘Club of 27’.
Amy rose to fame with her album Back to Black, where singles such as “Rehab”, “Back to Black” and “Love is a losing game” are released, winning important awards such as a Bit Award, MTV VMAs, Grammy, among many others. Here we remember how was his musical career.
The singer only released two studio albums: Frank (2003) and Back to Black (2006). The other records in his music catalog were published posthumously.
Amy had a unique voice that made her stand out in the world of music, she had a contralto voice, which in women would represent the most serious, a rarity in the middle. Critics compared Amy’s vocal range to immortals like Sarah Vaughan and Macy Gray, primarily jazz singers.
Amy advanced her stay on Earth on July 23, 2011 when she was found dead in her London apartment. The paramedics found her lifeless so her death was declared immediately and the autopsy revealed that the singer had ingested large amounts of alcohol.
The director Asif Kapadia illustrated the life, work and death of the singer with a documentary titled simply Amy. In 2016 it won the Oscar for best documentary. Without a doubt, Amy Winehouse briefly conquered the world with her powerful voice and music. It will always be remembered.
