2015-07-03
With the documentary 'Amy' in cinemas today, looking at the short life, brilliant music and tragic death of Amy Winehouse, it would be easy to wallow once more in the sadness of her passing in 2011. But while her story ended in tragedy, a life cut short at just 27, there was so much to love from Amy when she was with us - both her incredible music and her wicked sense of humour. Here are 10 moments we're looking back on today: amy-winehouse 1. Back where it all started - her debut single, Stronger Than Me: 2.
