Amy Winehouse’s legacy was cut short due to the Jazz/Soul singer passing away on July 23, 2011 at the age of twenty-seven. After releasing the Grammy Award winning album ‘Back to Black,’ Winehouse battled drug addiction that impeded the progress of her musical career. In her young career, the “Rehab” singer released two critically acclaimed albums ‘Frank’ and ‘Back to Black.’
In addition, the first posthumous album from Winehouse entitled ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures,’ was released on December 5, 2011. The set includes unreleased materials as well as cover versions of classic songs
