Amy Winehouse Biography: Career of 'Rehab' Singer
Born September 14th, 1983 in Southgate, London, England, Amy Winehouse followed in the footsteps of her jazz-loving family and started singing young. Varied influences like Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald, Salt-N-Pepa and The Ronettes came together to make her signature sound and style, and pretty soon she was fighting off record labels. Her debut record, "Frank," was a success, but it was her sophomore record "Back to Black" that won her fans around the world. Unfortunately, the strength of addiction was too much for this singer: after years of spiraling downward, she was found dead in her home due to alcohol poisoning on July 23rd, 2011.
