Adele Writes About Amy Winehouse; Funeral Date Announced

Following on from Russell Brand’s touching piece about Amy Winehouse, British songbird Adele has also blogged about the singer on her website. In a short article titled “Amy Flies in Paradise X,” Adele wrote, “we believed every word she wrote, and it would sink in deep when she sang them. Amy paved the way for artists like me and made people excited about british music again whilst being fearlessly hilarious and blase about the whole thing. i don’t think she ever realised just how brilliant she was and how important she is, but that just makes her even more charming.” Many stars also expressed their sorrow over Amy’s death on Twitter.
