Education: Amy Winehouse, a tribute

Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse is dead!
The new didn't surprised me, but I am very sad! Amy Winehouse singer and songwriter could not win the battle with alcohol and drugs that increasingly overshadowed her talent.
"With her distinctive hairdo, lashings of eye make-up and garish tattoos, Winehouse rocketed to fame that she could not control."
I wrote Amy Winehouse is back in January, 15 2011:

"Amy Winehouse is back! This wonderful singer and composer of soul, jazz and R&B is finally back after almost 5 years of crossing hell! Her tour in Brazil has been successful. Amy is finally back! 

She has an incredible talent! She has such a gorgeous voice! She is complex, unique, superb! Hope she's finally back!"

She didn't! Amy Winehouse is dead of accidental alcohol poisining at age 27! She will live in her songs! Two albums 'Frank' (2003) and 'Back to Black' (2006), five Grammy Awards in 2008.


Alcohol and drugs are a sad reality in our days. Sometimes they are among some of our students at school. 

Amy's life could be an important alert to discuss in the classroom. Begin a open discussion. Let your students to speak free.

Play her songs in the classroom and let your students to understand the lyrics by helping them to study the lyrics to better understand Amy's life.

At the end, try to evaluate with a simple dialogue if they could understand how sad is to die this way.

Ya, I know, it's difficult to some students. They have a disturbed family, sometimes a a father like Amy's father or a weak mother.

However try to open their eyes and show your students how important it is to make the good choices for a better life.

I'm sure they will appreciate this life lesson!

A talented songwriter, an aamazing voice, but ony a girl that destroyed herself and could not resist to such brutality. The tabloids, the success, the loneliness.

To me, she will be always 'unique' on her voice and talent! She was just unhappy young girl. Perhaps to vulnerable and fragile to face such a success.
