Amy Winehouse Mourned on St. Lucia
Posted Jul 26th 2011 08:15 AMUpdated Jul 26th 2011 08:36 AM
The Grammy winning singer spent a great amount of time there, earning the affections of locals who are now mourning her loss, according to Breaking Travel News.
"We have lost a good friend and the world has lost a great talent," said tourism and civil aviation senator Allen Chastanet on behalf of St. Lucians. "We were fortunate to see another side of Amy, and will be forever grateful for the acts of kindness and compassion she extended to less fortunate Saint Lucians during her visits with us.
The "Valerie" and "Back to Black" singer, perhaps best known for her song "Rehab," was found dead in her London home Saturday. The cause of death is still unknown.
Winehouse is not the only Brit to whom the Caribbean has paid homage. A beach in Antigua and Barbuda once frequented by Princess Diana was renamed in her honor.
