Amy Winehouse's family left 'bereft' by her death
Amy Winehouse's family have been left "bereft" by her death.
The 'Rehab' singer was found dead at her home in Camden, North London yesterday (23.07.11) after a suspected alcohol and drugs overdose and a statement today from her loved ones reveals the heartbreak they are battling.
The statement said: "Our family has been left bereft by the loss of Amy, a wonderful daughter, sister and niece. She leaves a gaping hole in our lives. We are coming together to remember her and we would appreciate some privacy and space at this terrible time."
Amy's family are not the only people struggling to cope with her loss. At his gig with The Faces in Hurtwood, Surrey, South East England last night, Absolute Radio DJ Ronnie Wood dedicated his performance of 'I Would Rather Go Blind' to the tragic 27-year-old singer.
He said: "It is a very sad loss, of a very good friend, I spent great times with, she was such a beautiful singer, it is such a waste."
Queen's Roger Taylor was in the crowd to watch the show and as he took to the stage he said "Tonight is about Amy, we lost a very special girl and we are going to pay tribute to her".
Amy is survived by her father Mitch, mother Janis and brother Alex.Posted on 24 Jul 2011 09:45 to category : Band / Celebrity News
