It’s so sad that she’s gone—after the hype with her Back to Black album. I was actually expecting another record release, something that would be on par with her last. She truly is a musical genius. That is reflected in the tracks she recorded, the lyrics she wrote, and the arrangements she and others have come up with. I was expecting more music, more of her work. I definitely admire what she has accomplished artistically.
What I’m not a fan of, is her troubled life. Why did she have to go through such? Substance abuse, health problems, legalities, troubled relationships, UGH!
It’s a common observation that gifted artists go through a certain darkness in their lives. Why? A loose foundation. Non-acceptance or non-acknowledgment of life’s negativity. The downside of being in the entertainment industry.
“That” industry will break a person and if one is not strong enough, he will lose himself.
So sad, so disappointed.
Our sympathies to the bereaved: May GOD help you get through this difficult time in your lives.
Amy, may you rest in peace. May you finally attain it. Thank you for the music. Thank you for instigating a passion for near-perfect artistic, musical attainment. GOD bless you.
