Winehouse’s debut record, Frank(2003), was a critical success in the united kingdom and was nominated for the Mercury Prize.
Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning July 2011. Her record Back to Black posthumously became, for a period, the UK’s best selling record of the 21st century. In 2012
Amy Winehouse was born to Jewish parents, in Chase Farm Hospital in north London. Her dad, Mitchell “Mitch” Winehouse, was a window panel installer then a taxi driver; her mom, Janis Winehouse (née Seaton), a pharmacist. The Winehouse ancestors were Polish and Russian immigrants to London.
Many of the maternal uncles of Winehouse were jazz musicians that are professional. Cynthia, Amy’s paternal grandmother, was dated the English jazz saxophonist Ronnie Scott and a vocalist. Amy’s parents and she affected Amy’s interest. Her dad Mitch frequently sang Frank Sinatra tunes to her, and whenever she got chastised at school she’d sing “Fly Me to the Moon” before going to the headmistress to be told off. She dwelt with her mom, and Winehouse’s parents split when she was nine and stayed with his girlfriend and her dad in Hatfield Heath, Essex on weekends.
After toying about with her brother Alex’s guitar, Winehouse started composing music a year after and purchased her own when she was 14. Soon after, she started working for an income, including, at one time an entertainment journalist for the World Entertainment News Network, as well as singing with local group the Bolsha Band.
2006–07: international success, Back to touring and Black
In contrast to her jazz-influenced record that was former, Winehouse’s focus shifted to the girl groups of the 1950s and 1960s. Winehouse hired New York vocalist Sharon Jones’s longtime group, the Dap-Kings, to back up her in the studio and on tour. Amy, My Daughter is related in by Mitch Winehouse how she’d set what she’d sung on a CD and fascinating seeing her procedure was: her perfectionism in the studio and play with it in his cab exterior to understand how her music would be heard by most folks.
2009–11: Closing jobs before departure
In a survey of U.S. residents ran for VisitBritain by Harris Interactive, the results of which were released in March 2009, one fifth of those polled indicated they’d listened to Winehouse’s music during the preceding year.
Winehouse’s dichotomous public image versus private chaos of critical and commercial success proved to be contentious. Karen Heller with The Philadelphia Inquirersummarised the maelstrom this manner:

The success of the movie has led Winehouse her second posthumous nomination at the 2016 Brit Awards for Best British Female Solo Artist.
Winehouse’s bodyguard believed she was intoxicated and said he arrived at her home before her departure. Average drinking was found by him over another day or two. In accordance with the bodyguard, at 10 a.m. he found her lying on her bed and attempted unsuccessfully to rouse her. Because she normally slept this failed to raise much feeling. According to the bodyguard, just after 3 p.m., he checked on her again and found her lying in the same place as before, leading to a further test, in which he reasoned that she wasn’t breathing and had no heartbeat. He said emergency services were later phoned by him.
