After getting up this morning I was sad hearing that Amy Winehouse died in her apartment in London yesterday. While our focus on the platform is not too heavy on music, I personally have 2 songs from her on my "evergreen" playlist on my phone and in my car. The British music scene lost a talent for sure, and I was expecting her to recover from all these drug stories and become the grand dame of jazz and soul in the years to come.
Pictures, her story and more details on her death are on the bigger news outlets.
While thousands die in a cruel summer in Africa, an idiot kills children in Norway and a talent dies away, I think this week did not produce to many good news. Our feelings are with all who suffer these days from loss and tragedy.
