Amy Winehouse

A statue of Amy Winehouse will be unveiled in 2014 at a concert commemorating the jazz soloist’s death, her father Mitch has confirmed.

Talking to BBC Newsbeat about the show – which is happening at the Roundhouse in Camden on 14 Sep 2014 – Mitch said: “We want to make it like a Live Aid type concert where we get maybe four, five, six hours’ worth. People doing a couple of songs each. Obviously that involves a lot of people [but] so far the response has been incredible”.

One of his daughter’s last public appearances was at the Roundhouse, when she joined her niece Dionne Bromfield on stage just days prior to her death in July 2011.

As previously reported, it has also just been announced that the Camden flat in which Winehouse died is being auctioned next month.
