Photos showing the design of sculptor Scott Eaton’s commemorative Amy Winehouse statue have been released online via the Evening Standard. First proposed back in November, the life-sized bronze effigy will, providing Camden Council sanctions it (which it’s still to do), be placed at the Roundhouse in North London, a mile away from the flat in which Winehouse died in July 2011.
The late singer’s father Mitch says he intends to unveil the statue at a memorial gala show in 2014, adding: “The reason why there will hopefully be a statue of her at the Roundhouse is everyone loved Amy. She was a strong girl who had weaknesses. Even the strongest people have them. Amy was a wonderful person, who did a lot for Camden and for kids. She was one of the greatest singers the world has ever known so why shouldn’t we put a statue up?”
