She was gifted with prodigious vocal qualities that led her to a dizzying success.<br />In February 2008 Amy Winehouse was the big winner of the Grammy Awards getting five of six prizes to those that was nominee for the second album of his career, Black to black, one of the best albums of the decade.<br />Her parents, Mitch and Janis, were fans of soul and jazz. It was soon exposed that they had no authority to deal with the bad temper of their daughter, a rebellious child that required constant attention. The only person who seemed to have some power over the girl was his paternal grandmother.<br />Amy's head had a single obsession: to succeed as a singer and since she was ten years old, she tried to form a rap duo in the style of the later Salt'n'Pepa not feel very proud. In 1995 she sign up in a drama school Sylvia Young, of which she was expelled the following year for having a pierced nose.

In those years, Amy had free access to drugs and alcohol. She began a romance with the troublemaker Blake Fielder. "I need to have trouble feeling my creative force," said Amy about it.<br />Alternating periods of anorexia and bulimia, drinking every night and going without stopping, Amy seemed to feed on their own misfortune to get ahead.

Static on the stage, tune and staring (if not completely drink the scale as in Portuguese), completed its annual commitments as she could, after canceling concerts by her agency had to pay large amounts in compensation. Just turned twenty-five years, it was said that Britain was immersed in the composition of which would be her third album. In the interviews said she was excited by the upcoming release of her husband, with whom she hoped "to have five children."<br />But neither the children or the third album had never arrived.
