Amy Winehouse was born on September 14, 1983 in the Southgate area of London, England. Her interest in music started at a young age. She enjoyed the jazz music that her parents so often listened to in the home, and was always found singing wherever she went. At the age of 13 she was enrolled at the Susi Earnshaw Theater School where she would receive more training, this was also the year that Amy received her first guitar. Her big break in the music industry came in 2003 with the release of her first album. She then continued to create music and eventually gained international fame. In 2007 Time magazine named her hit song ‘Rehab’ song of the year.

    This is so sad. I wish Amys family the. And im praying for them. Maybe she should have listened to her song rehab and said yes instead of no. It could have solved some of these problems!
