A former teacher of pop star Amy Winehouse publicly showed her concern for the troubled singer in a piece appearing in Sunday's London Daily Mail.
Sylvia Young, who founded the Sylvia Young Theatre School in London where Winehouse attended when she was 13 years old, wrote that the “Rehab” singer must feel terribly alone in the wake of her husband’s arrest and recent onstage meltdown, but wants her to know that she’s not.
“I cannot imagine what she is going through. When I hear about the problems, that her husband Blake Fielder-Civil has been arrested, or that she has been booed by her own fans on stage in Birmingham, I feel personally upset,” Young said in the Daily Mail piece.
Young wrote that she was "blown away" by Winehouse's talent, which earned her a scholarship to the school.
