After the sad news of the death of Amy Winehouse on Saturday afternoon there have been continuous tributes from fellow musicians, celebrities and of course friends and family.  It is a sad loss to all and she was clearly a greatly talented artist but with an unfortunate addiction.

Twitter was flooded with tributes to the star and offered a place for people to express their grief and offer condolences to her family.  Music producer Mark Ronson said: “She was my musical soulmate and like a sister to me. This is one of the saddest days of my life.”

TV presenter Kelly Osbourne tweeted: “i cant even breath right now im crying so hard i just lost 1 of my best friends. i love you forever Amy & will never forget the real you!”

Actress Demi Moore also wrote on Twitter: “Truly sad news about Amy Winehouse. My heart goes out to her family. May her troubled soul find peace.”

Lady Gaga has also paid tribute to Amy and has thanked her for giving her hope after Amy proved that a singer with a jazz background could also be successful in mainstream music.  “Amy changed pop music forever.  I remember knowing there was hope and feeling not alone because of her.  She lived jazz, she lives the blues.”

She had a huge impact on many people’s lives so it only seems fitting to pay tribute to some of her most famous and popular work.  She will be sadly missed, RIP Amy!
