Amy Winehouse Biography: Career of 'Rehab' Singer

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. In this video, WatchMojo.com learns more about the life and career of Amy Winehouse.
