Five years after the release of her landmark album, her influence is still everywhere.One of the secrets of the singer's success was that her pain was real, born from her much-publicised drug abuse and heartache.The album sold 250,000 copies in its first year and earned her two Brit Award nominations as well as one for the prestigious Mercury Music Prize.Winehouse left both events empty-handed, though the nominations helped seal her reputation as a singer of exceptional quality.The album was nominated for six Grammy Awards and won five.The talented artist with the deep contralto voice seemed poised to reach even greater heights when she fell victim to alcoholism which clamed her life untimely.Despite being as famous for her private life as her music, there is no disputing that Amy Winehouse was one of the finest singers of her generation.Andrew Lloyd Webber, George Michael and Lady Gaga are among those to have sung the praises of her vocal power, while critics were unanimous in their approval of 2006's multi-million-selling album Back To Black.
