English singer/songwriter Amy Winehouse was found dead in her home today of causes yet to be determined. Winehouse was the mainstream face of British R&B after her 2006 album Back In Black became an international success both commercially and critically. Her style was seen as having roots in soul music’s past with a contemporary authority that reinvigorated the genre globally. Her last recording was her collaboration with Tony Bennett on “Body and Soul” from a session last March for his duets album out later this year.
