Amy Winehouse tragically passed away on July 23 2011, with the world instantly mourning the loss of one of the greatest singers.
Aged just 27, the Back to Black songstress died at her home in Camden Square, London, with a coroner ruling the cause of death to be alcohol poisoning.
Born Amy Jade Winehouse on September 14, 1983, Amy was famed for her beehive hairstyle, tattoos, winged eyeliner, north London accent and soulful voice.
As fans mourn her death nine years on, Daily Star Online has taken a look back at some of the biggest moments of her life and career.
Nicknamed Hurricane Amy as a child, Winehouse catapulted to fame in 2003 after releasing her debut album, Frank.
The album which charted at number three in the UK went to be nominated for two BRIT Awards before being certified platinum.
Frank later went on to bag Amy an Ivor Novello award for her songwriting skills.
Amy’s worldwide success came from the back of her second studio album Back to Black., which would also be her last.
The Queen of Camden sparked a friendship with DJ and producer Mark Ronson, in May 2006 with Mark later becoming one of her closest friends.
The pair along with Salaam Remi went on to produce the entire album in just five months.
Shortly after it’s release, the album topped the charts and quickly became the best selling song of 2007, shifting over 1.85 million copies.
Amy’s first release from the album, Rehab, documented her struggles with drug and alcohol addiction.
The single which soon became one of her most iconic tracks focuses on Amy’s refusal to enter a treatment facility after being encouraged by her management team.
Following the US release of Back to Black, Amy once again made records after she bagged the highest debut for a UK female n the US Billboard charts.
The album landed Amy the British Female Solo Artist award at the 2007 ceremony.
It was her collaboration with Mark on his track Valerie, a cover of The Zutons hit which secured her as one of the biggest names in the industry.
Despite being known for her soulful jazz voice, Amy lent her vocals to the track for Ronson’s forthcoming album, Version to create a pop record.
Initially, Ronson recalled being unsure of how the song would fit with Amy’s style but later said: “she went into the studio and tried it. I loved it.”
The single went on to hit number two in the singles charts before spending 19 weeks in the top 20.
Two years after the initial release of her last studio album, the iconic songstress once again made new records during the 2008 Grammy’s.
Despite not being at the ceremony, Amy held a live-streamed performance from London which was broadcast at the event in Los Angeles.
On the night, she received five awards – much to her shock, leaving Amy speechless on stage before being cradled by dad Mitch and mum, Janis.
After receiving Record of the Year, Amy dedicated her triumphant win to her parents and “to Camden Town,” where she was often seen behind the bar of The Hawley Arms.
The You Know I’m No Good singer was bestowed the honour of singing Free Nelson Mandela at the former South African president’s 90th birthday celebrations in London’s Hyde Park back in 2008.
Amy, who was joined by the Soweto Gospel Choir for the song which was written and released as a protest against Nelson by the apartheid South African government.
In true Amy style, while thinking of her then-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, she changed the lyric “free Nelson Mandela” to “free Blakey my fella,” which left Gordon Brown explaining the lyric change to Mandela.
Amy’s last appearance on stage came on July 20, 2011 – three days before her passing.
Taking to the stage of Camden’s Roundhouse, Amy joined her goddaughter Dionne Bromfield on stage for her hit single Mama Said.
Sadly, Amy was found at her home just three days later.
Despite battling a drug addiction for several years, Amy had been clean for almost three years at the time of her death.
Since her death, Camden Town council erected a statue of her on her 31st birthday in Camden Stable Market, yards away from where Amy lived.
At the time of the unveiling, Mitch Winehouse said: “Now Amy will oversee the comings and goings of her home town forever…
“Amy was in love with Camden and it is the place her fans from all over the world associate her with.”
