Birthday commemoration of Amy Winehouse

Happy birthday to the late Amy Winehouse, born September 14, 1983.

Talented but troubled, Amy Winehouse established a new appreciation for classic soul sounds in her native UK in the first decade of the 21st century, opening the door for artists ranging from James Morrison to Duffy to Adele.  Her album Back to Black. featuring the song "Rehab," became a smash, winning the Grammy Award for Best Album and topping the charts in several countries.

However the comet that was her career was soon extinguished, as personal demons and addictions prevented her from following up on her Back to Black success. She tragically died of alcohol intoxication on July 23, 2011.
