Tragically on Saturday 23 July 2011 two ambulances rushed to Amy Winehouse’s Â£2.5 million Camden home in North London after her security guard returned to check upon her after she had gone to bed and realised that something was seriously wrong.
Soon after the Metropolitan Police confirmed that the talented soul singer had died.
Amy Winehouse was just 27-years-old.
The late Rehab singer’s record label Universal Republic said:
“We are deeply saddened at the sudden loss of such a gifted musician, artist and performer.
Musical Tributes for the mega-global talent poured in from all over the world including, Lady Gaga, Adele, Kelly Clarkson, Rihanna, U2, to list but a few who knew in their hearts that the music industry had lost such a gifted musician, artist and friend.
Within minutes of her death being announced to the world huge crowds gathered outside the tragic stars home wanting to pay their respects in whichever way they could.
They lit thousands of candles, wrote letters and cards, filled the pavements with flowers, left gifts and held 24-hour vigils.
In a very fitting tribute to celebrate her unique short life and music career, the incredibly multi-talented pianist, singer, composer and TV presenter Julian Miles Holland, known to everyone as “Jools” Â is presenting a collection of the Back to Black’s greatest performances.
This special TV tribute programme will also include Amy Winehouse sets from ‘Later with Jools Holland’ and the Mercury Prize.
