Forget the tabloids and whatever ends up said about the infamous Winehouse and how she passed away. Let's go back to the very beginning, when this little U.K. girl was born on September 14, 1983, and decided to pursue music. Things looked good. She obviously had some major talent. When she was 20, someone noticed: Island Records.

Her debut album was Frank. That's right, that's all it was called: Frank. Despite the fact that it was a simple title, the album proved to be monumental, nominated for a 2004 Mercury Music Prize as well as two Brit awards. The lead single 'Stronger Than Me' actually won an Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song. Arguably, though, Winehouse was probably best known for her iconic hit 'Rehab' off of her second album Back to Black in 2007, released by Universal Records. Receiving rave reviews and obviously being hailed as a music mastermind a la Madonna or Aretha Franklin, the beautiful Brit girl had it all, showing up on Rolling Stone and Spin magazine covers and headlining just about everything that had to do with music in that continent.

It was very sad to hear that she was found dead in her home in Camden, London, possibly due to overdoses and alcohol abuse. She obviously did have a tumultuous life, but her music shows the very best of her. And it always will.
