Last year, the music world lost Amy Winehouse at the too young age of 27. Sadly, while Winehouse's biggest hit was "Rehab," it was her refusal to continue to seek help (as she stated in her own song) that led to her downfall. The official cause of death was alcohol intoxication, a clear sign that the talented yet troubled singer was still struggling with demons before her passing.

At the time of Winehouse's death, even with all of her issues, she was a well-respected artist amongst the music and entertainment community. When she passed away last year, Twitter didn't just blow up with an outcry from fans, but also from some of the biggest public figures. CNN's Anderson Cooper may have summed up Winehouse's death best via this tweet from last year: "Just heard a report Amy Winehouse has died. If true, such a waste of a great talent."

It's now a year later since the tragic demise of a talented young woman. For those that were fans of her music, you can still continue to support her legacy and estate by following the official Twitter feed @AmyWinehouse for updates, exclusive tracks, and special offers. You can also follow @AmysFoundation for information on how to purchase her biography, which was completed by her father. Winehouse's music lives on, but her legacy will be just as much of a cautionary tale as it is of a spectacular performer.

    I think she was a great talent. Lyricaly and vocally she had all the potential in the world. Frank was a great album, Back To Black was a modern classic. She will go down as another great rock n roll tragedy. It's a shame someone with the talent she didn't messed herself up as badly as she did. I honestly thought she'd be a true success story, but I guess it all caught up wth her.

    I really liked her music, the old-soul vibe and astounding lyrics. She wasn't manufactured by some record company -- WYSIWYG.

    It's a shame that to get all that she was a drug-addicted mess; and part of the thanks for her talent goes to that place. If she hadn't said 'No' to rehab, I don't think much of the world would have even heard what a great voice she had. Same as many singers, I guess. The demons that drive them are the same that destroy them.

    Not really, some songs are ok, but I am not the type of person to automatically start liking someone just because they are dead.

    She had a very distinct voice, a bold personality and her music was brilliant. But yet again drugs and alcohol did what they do. Ruin people till their bodies and brains can take no more.

    Amy Winehouse was a very talentive singer! This young woman had issues just like the next person. I will not judge her because she wasn't perfect and neither am I! She could sing her behind off,an addiction is a killer,just say "No"! We have lost so many talentive people in this world, being addictive to a drug. I love her music and very sad she is no longer with us!

    I really enjoyed her music...it was such a welcome departure from the cookie cutter crap they are trying to foist one us now....

    She had a set of vocal cords that was special...just like Adele...just a different genre.

    Such a waste of life an talent.....

    Some of it. Specifically the stuff that was more influenced by soul.

    And some of her ska covers were alright.

    The only song that ever stuck with me was ''Rehab'' so I could never really consider myself a fan. Nevertheless, her death was tragic.

    But then I am not a fan of anyone these days. I did think she had a beautiful voice, and I did like the few songs that I heard by her.
    Her death was tragic
