Amy Winehouse Dead At Age 27

Soul singer Amy Winehouse was found dead today in her north London home.

The singer had been very open about her battles with drugs and alcohol throughout the years, but the cause of death has yet to be connected to either one.

Although it would be easy to remain unsurprised by this news, it's still incredibly shocking and heartbreaking, as Winehouse was hands down one of the most compelling and unique voices in pop music in recent years.

I think most of us held out hope that 2006's Back To Black was just the beginning for Winehouse and not the end. I truly wish it had been so.

RIP, Amy.
