Today marks the one year anniversary of the passing of one of the world’s greatest singers. Amy Winehouse would have been 29 in September, but left behind too short a legacy and too harsh a reminder of the downfall of drugs and alcohol. Amy will always be one of my favorite singers, although listening to her music is sometimes dark-feeling, and I get sad as I sing along.
Amy’s father has since started a charity, The Amy Winehouse Foundation which helps underprivileged children all over the world. Her father Mitch travels and speaks about his daughter, her demons and the need for substance abuse enlightenment among today’s youth. He has also just published a book, My Daughter Amy, in which he gives us insight into her early years, struggles and Amy the person.
God bless you Amy. And may others in this world realize the damage that comes from substance abuse and enabaling those around us. Another amazing life lost. Today Amy, we celebrate your life.
Cheers to you girl. I’m sure you’re singing wherever you are.
