Peace, Amy

Amy Jade Winehouse
 9/14/1983-7/23/2011

From Russell Brand's eloquent tribute, on happening upon his then-acquaintance in concert:
From her oddly dainty presence that voice, a voice that seemed not to come from her but from somewhere beyond even Billie and Ella, from the font of all greatness. A voice that was filled with such power and pain that it was at once entirely human yet laced with the divine.
...
So now I knew.
She wasn’t just some hapless wannabe, yet another pissed up nit who was never gonna make it, nor was she even a ten-a-penny-chanteuse enjoying her fifteen minutes. She was a fucking genius
