Amy Winehouse sculpture to be unveiled in London
A sculpture to commemorate Amy Winehouse is to be unveiled at Camden market in north London, near the singer's last home.
The memorial, which has been designed by Scott Eaton, will be a life-size brass sculpture of Winehouse and will stand at the centre of the Stables market, a short walk from the townhouse where the 27-year-old died of alcohol poisoning in July 2011, The Guardian reported.
The jazz and blues singer was a much-loved and commonly sighted figure in the north London borough and her father, Mitch Winehouse, said he could not think of anywhere more appropriate for a memorial for his daughter. ‘I had a meeting with Camden council and they told me they don't usually allow statues until 20 years after someone has died, but in Amy's case, they made an exception,’ he said.
