I was first introduced to AMY WINEHOUSE by my co-worker Mike about 9 years ago, way before she hit North America. We played her album repeatedly during our shifts. We commented on the richness of her voice, and the bitterness of her lyrics. But that's all we knew, her voice and her song. I didn't even know what she looked like, I just knew that, with a voice like that, she was destined to be a musical great.
Fast forward to about 3 weeks ago. I watched in amazed horror (and I admit a little judgmental disgust) as she
AMY you're gone way too soon. And although the drama-hungry-media will undoubtedly put your illness on display, I will remember you fondly as the tiny British girl with the powerhouse voice. And though you may not have realized it, your gift was inspiring.
REST IN PEACE
