July marks an­niver­sary of Wine­house’s tragic death

South Waikato News - - ENTERTAINMENT -

The first an­niver­sary of jazz singer Amy Wine­house’s death will be marked around the world on July 23.

The Lon­don-based Wine­house, who won five Grammy awards for her al­bum Back to Black, was found un­re­spon­sive in her home on July 23, 2011. She was 27.

A coro­ner ruled her death as an ‘‘ un­in­tended con­se­quence’’ of a heavy drink­ing ses­sion that had fol­lowed a pe­riod of ab­sti­nence.

Over the course of her short ca­reer, she de­liv­ered three al­bums: Frank, Back to Black and Lioness: Hid­den Trea­sures and the breadth of her tal­ent re­minds the world just how tragic a loss her death was.
