Certain names just ring a bell. Some are clouded with controversy, while others are guided by the marks they’ve made in history. With that being said. What comes to your mind when you hear the name Amy Winehouse? “A talent gone before her time” would be a vague, yet unbiased statement. “A woman, whose unique voice narrated her life through love and heartache”.
