There is sad news coming out of London today. Famed singer Amy Winehouse has died at the age of 27.

Several British media outlets broke the story and police have confirmed that Winehouse did in fact die Saturday morning. There aren’t a whole lot of details regarding her death as of now but here is what we know. Police arrived at Amy’s home after being called by London Ambulance Services. At this time her death is being treated as unexplained, according to the police. Winehouse’s rep has not released a statement or confirmed this very tragic news.

It is no secret that the ‘Rehab” singer has battled both a serious drug and alcohol addiction. Although she had several stints in rehab she just couldn’t seem to kick her addiction. That doesn’t necessarily mean that drugs or alcohol had anything to do with her death, let’s be clear about that since we have no idea what caused her to die.

Most recently Amy made headlines when she canceled her European tour after a less than stellar performance in Serbia. Winehouse stumbled a few times, slurred her words, allowed her back up dancers to sing and ended the show early. Not one of her finest hours to say the least, clearly she was having issues again.

I am a big fan of Amy Winehouse’s music and her death is so so tragic. In time we will know what caused her life to be cut too short but until then I choose to pay my respects to a very talented woman. Yes she had her demons as we all do but one thing cannot be denied she had an amazing voice. Those are my thoughts on this very sad news, if you have any please feel free to share them with me.

R.I.P. Amy you will be missed.
