Singer Amy Winehouse, a favorite among many LGBT music lovers, has been found dead in her London apartment. The cause of death has yet to be confirmed.

The 27-year-old Grammy winner, who rose to fame in 2007—ironically with the song “Rehab”—battled drug and alcohol addiction for years and had most recently checked into a treatment facility in May. She resumed touring just days later, but canceled her remaining dates not long after.

We’ll leave you with this clip of Winehouse’s video for “Back to Black” and a quote from the singer herself:

“I didn’t go out looking to be famous… I’m just a musician.”
