Amy Winehouse, the first British female to win five Grammys, passed away unexpectedly and tragically on July 23rd, 2011 leaving behind family, friends and millions of fans. While the media continuously preyed throughout the years on her and the addictions that ultimately took her life, the void she left in music is as loud and just as big as the impact she made upon debuting her chart topping 2007 sophomore release, Back To Black.
Today we look back at just a few of her legendary live performances and covers, remembering the talent and not the tragedy.
The Amy Winehouse Foundation, created by her father Mitch, supports and empowers children in need through music therapy and education, working to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse and addiction. Donations to the foundation can be made here.
