Though Amy Winehouse passed away over a year ago, the singer was just recently put to rest.
According to Hollywood Rag, Amy Winehouse’s family said their final farewell yesterday as they buried her ashes. Amy passed away in July 2011 aged just 27 from alcohol poisoning and her ashes were set to rest in a Jewish ceremony in Edgware, North London. The memorial was attended by around 70 mourners & her ashes were committed to the ground accompanied by a black & pink headstone.
Last Friday would have been the singer’s 29th birthday. Her family spoke to fans on the Amy Winehouse Foundation website, saying:
“Today marks what would have been the 29th birthday of Amy Winehouse…Whilst the world continues to mourn the loss of a true superstar, her family – first and foremost – remember the daughter, niece and sister that is no longer with them.”
I miss her!
Nas is still honoring his friendship with Amy Winehouse, who passed away last year.
Currently on tour in the UK, the rapper gave the local radio stations a listen to his latest single, “Cherry Wine”, featuring their beloved UK native, Amy Winehouse.
So good to hear her voice. RIP Amy.
#7 – Amy Winehouse Joins The 27 Club
It was a very sad summer day for me this year to learn of Amy Winehouse’s passing.
Amy, known just as much for her talent as for her bad (ultimately deadly) habits, passed away on July 23 at 27-years-old. Allegedly, Amy’s cause of death was related to alcohol poisoning. However, inquiries continue into the circumstances of her death.
The singer joins the famous “27 Club” of musicians who also died at that age, consisting of deceased rock stars such as Jimi Hendrix, Janis Joplin & Kurt Cobain.
She will be greatly missed.
Sidenote: If you haven’t purchased &/or listened to Amy Winehouse’s latest compilation CD, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, you’re missing out!
