Amy Winehouse: The Autospsy, The Funeral, New Album
It’s been three days since the passing of Amy Winehouse. The autopsy was inconclusive, so we still don’t know what killed Amy. The cause of death will not be determined until October. The coroner has ordered a Section 20 postmortem which means that she feels that there is reasonable cause to suspect that Amy died a violent or unnatural death.
Yesterday morning her parents, Mitch and Janis, met with fans who continued to gather outside her London home.
“I can’t tell you what this means to us. It really is making this a lot easier for us. We’re devastated and I’m speechless, but thanks for coming. Amy was about one thing, and that was love. Her whole life was devoted to her family and her friends, and to you guys as well.”
The fans are steadily paying tribute to Amy by leaving flowers and cards by her London apartment where her body was found Saturday.
Amy’s Funeral was held today for family and friends. Kelly Osbourne and Mark Ronson, who produced Amy’s “Back to Black” album, were among the famous friends that joined Winehouse’s family and loved ones at London’s Edgwarebury Cemetery earlier today. Winehouse kept with family traditions and was cremated following the service.
Amy’s ex-husband, Blake Fielder-Civil, is clearly upset about Amy’s death. Blake’s girlfriend Sarah Aspin consoled Blake and said that he said,
“I will never ever again feel the love I felt for her. Everybody who knew me and knew Amy knew the depth of our love. I can’t believe she’s dead.”
She went on to say that Blake was in “total shock at the news.” Even commenting on their love for each other.
“I know they were really in love and they were soulmates. She always loved him and he always loved her, but it was just never going to work.”
Meanwhile, album sales have sky-rocketed after the news of Amy’s death. Back to Black sold as many as 25,000 copies in a day and a half, and is #1 on iTunes and Amazon.com.
Amy was preparing to release a third album and was reportedly recording demos in Saint Lucia. Though sources say that the album will definitely be released, the final say will go to Amy’s parents, Mitch and Janis Winehouse.
For now, the next definite Winehouse release will be a duet of “Body and Soul” that she recorded with Tony Bennett for his upcoming album, Duets II. The album will be out in September.
