Today brought tragic news. Talented singer and songwriter Amy Winehouse was found dead this morning in a London flat. According to TMZ, the authorities have yet to determine the cause of death.

From TMZ (via the Metropolitan Police):

"Police were called by London Ambulance Service to an address in Camden Square NW1 shortly before 16.05hrs today, Saturday 23 July, following reports of a woman found deceased.

On arrival officers found the body of a 27-year-old female who was pronounced dead at the scene.

I'll be completely honest here...I guess we cannot speculate on how she died until the official inquiry is complete; however, most of us that have been fans of hers and have followed her career since she came on the scene, know that she was a very troubled young woman. I have to say that a couple of years ago, I said I was through with Ms. Winehouse and yet, I still listened to her music. I believed (and still do) that she was an extremely talented person. It is beyond sad that this has come to pass and that a life so young and with so much promise could be silenced this soon. I extend my condolences to her family and friends. I believe in the end, through her lyrics and music, Amy will be remembered at her most beautiful and vulnerable best; that will be her legacy.
