Lioness (CD) Amy Winehouse

Amy Winehouse's death in July left a gaping hole in the music world. Few artists before or since match her distinctive style, stellar vocals and honest lyrics. As expected, a posthumous album has been released, a tribute to the talented yet deeply troubled singer.

Late diva's music lives on

This summer, the world lost a musical talent like no other. As tragic as it was, no one can truly say it was a surprise: let's be honest, Amy Winehouse's long battle with substance abuse was no secret. Addiction ultimately ended her career (many would argue well before her death) and life.

Lenka dropped into Hong Kong for a concert at the Kowloon Bay International Trade and Exhibition Centre (Kitec) last week as Typhoon Nesat edged towards the city. After a morning of fretting whether the concert would be cancelled, fans of the Australian pop singer were happy to hear that it would go on.

Back to Black Amy Winehouse (CD)

Back to Black was released almost five years ago and it catapulted Amy Winehouse to stardom. The husky-voiced singer with her laid-back, bluesy, quirky delivery has since become a global success. The album has rocketed back to the charts since her untimely death aged 27 in July.

What I'm listening to: Back to Black by Amy Winehouse. Her recent passing was very sad and a real loss. She leaves behind a great musical legacy.

What I'm reading: The Director's Craft by Katie Mitchell. She's a prominent theatre director in Britain and it's very helpful for me to have a good reference and learning point to help me progress as a director.
