It’s a bittersweet day in the music world. Today, September 14, would have been Amy Winehouse’s 33rd birthday, had she not tragically passed away in 2011. Celebs shared their birthday wishes for the late legend on social media. Take a look after the jump!
We miss Amy Winehouse so much! Amy was truly one of the greats, a prolific singer with a voice unmatched. The beautiful singer with a beautiful soul faced terrible personal demons, struggling with alcohol and drug addiction while maintaining a powerful career. She was found dead in her London apartment on July 23, 2011, of alcohol poisoning.
It’s hard to imagine that Amy would have only been 33 if she were still alive! Amy was just 27 years old when she died — far too young. Much was said about Amy joining the infamous “27 Club”; there’s a significant number of artists who have strangely died at the age of 27, like Kurt Cobain, Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin…and Amy. But today, on her 33rd birthday, those celebrities who are inspired by her and her incredible life are only paying tribute to the good things. They’re remembering her fondly on social media:

Amy Winehouse would've been 33 today. She missed out on life & we missed out on more of her beautiful talent. If you need help, seek it.

These tributes are so sweet! Mark Ronson was one of Amy’s closest collaborators and confidants. The duo worked together on some of Amy’s most memorable hits, including “Rehab” and “Valerie”. He lost a best friend that day, not just a colleague. Adele has stated many times that Amy was one of the reasons she was inspired to get into music. One woman’s incredible voice introduced us to another’s! The tributes are only going to keep coming in as they day goes on, we’re sure.
