British retro-soul singer Amy Jade Winehouse was found dead in her home in Camden, north London on , Saturday, July 23, 2011. This was really a shocking news as she was only 27-year-old. Her death was confirmed by the Metropolitan Police, after the London Ambulance Service was called to the singer's flat just before 4pm Saturday BST. A body, believed to be that of singer Amy Winehouse, is removed from her home following her death. The cause of death is as yet unknown but the Grammy Award winner Amy Winehouse, the soul-jazz diva whose self-destructive habits overshadowed a distinctive musical talent, had checked out of a treatment center a month ago.

A really few artists summed up their own career in a single song and a single line as well as Amy Winehouse."They tried to make me go to rehab," she sang on her world-conquering 2006 single, "Rehab." ''I said 'No, no no.'" Occasionally, she said yes, but to no avail: repeated stints in hospitals and clinics couldn't stop alcohol and drugs scuttling the career of a singer whose distinctive voice, rich mix of influences and heart-on-her sleeve sensibility seemed to promise great things.

In her short lifetime, Winehouse too often made headlines because of drug and alcohol abuse, eating disorders, destructive relationships and abortive performances. But it's her small but powerful body of recorded music that will be her legacy.

The singer was found dead Saturday by ambulance crews called to her home in north London's Camden area, a youth-culture mecca known for its music scene, its pubs and the availability of illegal drugs. The London Ambulance Service said Winehouse had died before crews arrived at the house in leafy Camden Square. The cause of death was not immediately known.

The singer's body was taken from her home by private ambulance to a London mortuary where post-mortem examinations were to be carried out either Sunday or Monday. Police said in a statement no arrests had been made in connection with her death.

It was not a complete surprise, but the news was still a huge shock for millions around the world. The size of Winehouse's appeal was reflected in the extraordinary range of people paying tribute as they heard the news, from Demi Moore, who tweeted "Truly sad news ... May her troubled soul find peace" to chef Jamie Oliver, who wrote "such a waste, raw talent" on the social networking site.

Mexican rescuers searched for seven American tourists after tourist boat capsizes

Tourist Boat Capsizes

One person drowned and six were missing after a fishing boat carrying 27 American tourists capsized in a storm and sank off Mexico's Baja California peninsula, authorities said on Monday.

The 115-foot (35 meter) chartered boat left the port of San Felipe on the Sea of Cortez, a haven for windsurfers and sports fishermen, on Saturday but was struck by an electrical storm and capsized early on Sunday, port and navy officials said.

Emergency services officials in San Felipe said 27 of the 44 people on board were U.S. citizens.

The U.S. Coast Guard, which is sending a helicopter to help with the rescue, said one person was dead and authorities were still searching for six others, but had no information on their nationalities.

"(The helicopter) should be there around 0800 (Pacific time) to assist with rescue efforts," Coast Guard official Benny Minton said.

The boat, called the Erik, was found around 87 miles south of San Felipe, a popular holiday and fishing resort located south of Mexicali.

According to an Internet advertisement, the Erik has been operating in the Sea of Cortez since 1989 and can sleep up to 42 guests.

"We are still looking for the rest of the people. The weather is really bad right now, with strong wind," said local port official Felipe Vallecillo.
