The troubled singer had a long battle with drinking and drugs which grabbed as many headlines as her recent musical career.

Winehouse secured widespread acclaim, at age 20, with her 2003 debut album, Frank. Then in 2006 her album Back to Black saw her shore up worldwide fame, winning five Grammy Awards.
