Agreed. She had an amazing, soulful voice, and was full of talent. But after that last appearance she made on stage drunk/high, it was in the back of my mind that something would happen to her if she didn't get help (it was around the time of the Charlie Sheen thing). Unfortunately, this is how things ended. There goes another talent that the (hollywood) media just ridiculed and watched go down. It's been clear that she had a drug problem and no one intervened to help. Hopefully an effort for more drug awareness will rise out of this.
RIP Amy Whinehouse.
