Love ya always."
Meanwhile, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings and the Daptone Records family, many of whom recorded with Winehouse, sent the following statement to Us Weekly:
"We are very sad to have lost Amy Winehouse today. She was one of a kind and we were fortunate to have had the chance to make music with her. She was always gracious and a pleasure to work with in the studio and on the road. She brought a lot of people joy with her voice and her irreverent personality. It is a tragedy that she was taken from us so soon when she had much more music to give."
