7 Talented People Who Died Too Soon in the Last Decade ...


There are some talented people who died too soon in the last decade who I would like to pay homage to.

When a celebrity passes, we all feel a sense of loss as they will no longer grace our screens with their presence.

Even though we may not have known them personally, we have sometimes developed a connection with them by seeing them perform and in many ways, they speak to and inspire us.

Here are some of the talented people who died too soon in the last decade that we will miss.

1. Paul Walker

Best known for his role in the Fast and Furious films, Paul Walker is one of the most recent philanthropic actors that Hollywood is mourning and one of the talented people who died too soon.

Walker was someone who used his fame and money for the greater good by setting up Reach Out Worldwide, a charity which was raising money for The Philippines after the country was devastated by a typhoon.

He began modelling at the age of two when he starred in a television commercial for Pampers.

And even though he continued to act and model, his real passion was marine biology.

At the tender age of 40, Walker tragically passed away in a road accident on November 30th, 2013.

2. Amy Winehouse

A talented singer with so many problems, the music industry suffered a dreadful loss when she died of alcohol poisoning on July 23rd 2011 at the age of 27.

With such a unique sense of style and an amazing voice, she had so many years of albums and accolades ahead of her but it was not meant to be.

On her short time here, she did manage to win five Grammy Awards for her 2008 album Back to Black.

She is forever immortalised through the musical legacy she has left behind.
