English singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse was found dead at her house on Saturday, according to the Press Association, a multimedia news agency out of the UK.

Emergency officials found the body of the 27 year old in her north London property around 3:54 p.m. sources told the news agency.

The Back To Black artist’s death is being treated as unexplained at the moment.

Last month, Winehouse pulled out of her European tour because she was booed at her comeback performance in Serbia for looking as if she was too drunk to perform, according to the BBC. It is understood that for 90 minutes, Winehouse mumbled through parts of songs and at times left the stage - leaving her band to fill in, the BBC reported. She has been battling drugs and alcohol for a while.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman confirmed to the BBC that a 27-year-old woman had died in Camden and that the cause of death was as yet unexplained.

Winehouse, who is known for her powerful contralto vocals, won much acclamation when she was 20 with her 2003 debut album, Frank. However, it wasn’t until 2006, when she released the album Back to Black that she got worldwide fame, winning five Grammy Awards.
