Amy Winehouse 1983-2011

I was terribly saddened to hear of Amy Winehouse's untimely passing. I was just listening to one of my favorite records of all time, Back to Black, on Wednesday. As I listened to Amy's gorgeous voice, I hoped that she would get herself together.

During my junior year of college, I constantly played Back to Black when I was driving around campus. I remember thinking that Amy was so supremely talented. I was excited that someone with so much soul was producing music for my generation. Her sound reminded me of the music I grew up listening to with my parents.

But unfortunately, like many of the greats, she is gone too soon. Rest well, Amy. Thank you for your gift of song. Your music will live on.

I'm living life in beautiful Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. I hold a journalism degree from West Virginia University. I have worked in television news, fashion marketing, PR, and cosmetic sales. My love for writing and sharing with the world my various passions is strong. One of my many ambitions is to be published and continue creating in the fields of digital and print media, literature and film. In my free time, I enjoy listening to music, going to concerts, reading, following Pittsburgh sports and traveling as often as possible. Some of my favorite things include beauty, style, architecture, books, tarot and astrology, thrifting and my shih-tzu, Ireland. I’m engaged to the love of my lifetimes and we look forward to starting our next chapter together. If you have any questions or comments, I would love to hear from you!
