Death is so final and unexpected. People have actually joked about losing Amy Winehouse and tragedy striking after seeing her publicly battle her demons. I hope those same people aren’t laughing now.
I just got off the phone with a close friend of Amy’s who is with the family now at her flat in London. It is true, we have lost Amy Winehouse the artist, but her family and friends have lost Amy the person. Pray for them. There is no cause of death yet.
According to news reports, she was found dead in her London home earlier this afternoon:
The Back To Black singer was found at the property by emergency services at 3.54pm this afternoon, according to sources, and her death is being treated as ‘unexplained’ by police.
In a statement, the Metropolitan Police said: ‘Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.
On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.
‘Enquiries continue into the circumstances of the death. At this early stage it is being treated as unexplained.
Sorry to tell you this,
We thank her for sharing her talents with the world. Music for you to reflect on – some of her body of work.
