It’s been 10 years.

Amy Winehouse died 10 years ago on July 23, 2011. The cause of death was alcohol poisoning. Amy Winehouse was only 27 years old.

Three years earlier, she had become the first British woman to win five Grammys at the 2008 awards. With her contralto voice and ability to seamless mix genres, Winehouse had also won several British awards, including Best British Female Artist.
