Amy Winehouse; Tragic Hero
Transcript of Amy Winehouse; Tragic Hero
(Addiction) Amy Winehouse went through a time period of heavy drug use, drinking, frantic mood swings, and weight loss as her fame grew.
Reversal of Fortune
Amy Winehouse went from a very talented singer/songwriter to a drug addict.
Amy Winehouse was born in Southgate, London. Her mother, Janis Winehouse, was a pharmacist. Her father, Mitchel Winehouse, was a cab driver. However, her grandmother, Cynthia, was a singer.
At the age of 16, she signed her first record deal as a jazz vocalist.
Amy's management company hinted it was best if she went to a rehabilitation center, but she refused. However, she was able to write one of her greatest hits, known as "Rehab."
Amy Winehouse was in a mild coma in 2007, due to a large intake on drugs and a mix of alcohol. She was later diagnosed with emphysema brought on by smoking crack, cocaine, and cigarettes.
