Winehouse has been found dead at her home in north London.

Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister, niece.” said The Winehouse family.

Police described Winehouse's death as unexplained. Police say it is too early to speculate on how Winehouse died and a post mortem will not be conducted before Monday morning, but Winehouse's struggle with alcohol and drug addiction were well documented.

Winehouse, one of the most talented singers of her generation whose hit song Rehab summed up her personal struggles with addiction, died in London on Saturday at the age of 27.
