Amy Winehouse Facts - Things You May Not Know

Jan 30, 2008
This amazingly talented vocalist, named Amy Winehouse was born in 1983 on September 14th. Born in Southgate in London she went on to develop talent that would enable her to do the things she loved the most - singing and songwriting. Check out these top facts.

She was born in Southgate, London. The family were all Jewish Jazz musicians. So you could say that music was a part of her life from childbirth. When she was ten years old she started a rap band called Sweet n Sour and then went on to attend a theatre school but she didn't do too well, apparently getting her nose pierced. Along with some fellow students she later appeared on "The Fast Show" in 1997.

At Thirteen years of age she got her first guitar, got absorbed by it and dropped out of school a year later while writing music, and trying some drugs. She wrote her debut Album called "Frank" in October 2003 which received many positive reviews. During 2004 she won the Ivor Novello award for best contemporary song, as credit to her song entitled "stronger than me".

Unfortunately Amy grew tired of the album after the record producers included some songs she disliked.

Later on Amy took a twist to the future by trying out a new angle - an emphasis on the girls and women of the 1950's and the 1960's - with her hairdo to match!

She later met Mark Ronson and created her next Album in just 6 months, after a previous 18 months yielded nothing.

Then Amy turned things round and went from strength to strength in her career - sadly though it was always marred by news of her private life and drug issues in 2007 and 2008.

So while her musical career has soared, hitting 5x Platinum in the uk, her other side of life took over and videos of her taking cocaine surfaced and were released online.

Amy has got what it takes to be a household name and a top class legend - if she can learn to control the drugs that is.
