Amy Winehouse's July 23 death was ruled "death by misadventure" and an "unintended consequence" of consuming too much alcohol, according to the findings of a coroner. Just when we thought Mitch Winehouse and his family, as well as the singer's fans, would be able to achieve some closure over her death at 27, some shocking and disturbing news surrounding the inquest has been revealed. Turns out coroner Suzanne Greenaway does not have the qualifications and requirements necessary to have performed the inquest and it may ultimately be ruled invalid as a result!
Amy Winehouse's tragic death this July is still being mourned by those closest to her, but it also spurned her loved ones to action. Amy's beloved father, Mitch Winehouse, established the Amy Winehouse Foundation in her honor after her passing. Mitch is now organizing an A-list tribute concert in honor of the late 'Back to Black' chanteuse, with all proceeds going to the charity.
Amy Winehouse passed away in July, but her music is still very much in our hearts, as evidenced by the strong chart showing enjoyed by her recently released posthumous album 'Lioness.' Since Ms. Winehouse was nothing if not a diva, it's only fitting that she'll receive the tribute treatment during this year's 'VH1 Divas' telecast.
Well before she had completely descended into the addiction that ultimately took her life, Amy Winehouse was a masterful performer. Footage from her performances always showcase her incredible talent, rather than the tabloid antics for which she became notorious. One of her best-loved tracks is 'Tears Dry on Their Own, and recently released video from Vevo shows the raspy-voiced lioness performing a devastating rendition of the track at an Irish music festival.
