Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse was an artist who was musically active since her childhood, having been involved in the UK’s National Youth Jazz Orchestra. And she also experienced notable success early in her professional career. For instance the song “Stronger Than Me” (2003), which is featured on her first album “Frank”, took home an Ivor Novello Award. And by the time her second album came out she was an established superstar. Said project, “Back to Black” (2006), is an epic album. It holds the distinction of being the 12th highest-selling album in UK history (as of 2018). It is on that album that Winehouse’s signature song, “Rehab” can be found. The song also eventually earned her an Ivor Novello Award. 

Also despite being a British artist, she took home the most Grammys in 2008. And in the process of doing so she tied a record. The record in question was that of the most Grammys won in a single session by a female artist.

However, her phenomenal success was short-lived. Unfortunately Amy developed a serious drug addiction. And at the end of the day what she will likely be remembered for, even more than her music, is becoming a part of the infamous 27 Club. The 27 Club is a group of popular musicians who died prematurely. Amy tragically joined that club in 2011 having passed away at 27 from alcohol poisoning.
