Amy Winehouse Family Remember "Gifted Artist" On First Anniversary Of Her Death

23 July 2012, 16:44

The 'Back To Black' singer's family fondly remember Amy, who died a year ago today (23rd July).

The family of Amy Winehouse have led tributes to the star on the first anniversary of her death.

The 'Back To Black' singer was found dead at her home in Camden, London on 23rd July 2011. She was 27.

In a statement released on the website of The Amy Winehouse Foundation – an organisation setup in her name – the family said they were still struggling to come to terms with a life without Amy.

"To all of Amy's fans, and followers of the Amy Winehouse Foundation," they said.

"Today marks the first anniversary of Amy's passing, at the tragically young age of 27. To mark the event, the family will be spending the day together, remembering a daughter and sister that meant the world to them. For those who have been asking, the family will not be doing anything publicly, but nonetheless thank all those who have sent in wishes of love and support."

They continued: It is hard to believe that Amy would have been 28 years old. Whilst the world remembers a gifted artist who was taken from us all at a ridiculously young age, we will be thinking of a person who gave so much, and in turn was given so much, by a family still struggling to come to terms with the fact that, where there should be four, there is only three."

The family added: "We thank you all for the wonderful encouragement, sympathy and messages of support we have received in the last twelve months, and hope that we have been able to contribute to a positive legacy in Amy’s name."

Other music stars have been remembering Amy today, including Olly Murs, who acknowledged how her success has helped British artists achieve success in America.

Last year, a coroner recorded a verdict of misadventure following an inquiry into Amy Winehouse's death.
