Amy Winehouse - Amy Winehouse Statue To Be Unveiled At All-star Gig

Amy Winehouse's family will mark what would have been the tragic star's 31st birthday by unveiling a tribute statue in London.

The singer's father Mitch Winehouse has finalised plans for a sculpture of Amy to be erected in Camden, where she lived after shooting to fame.

The memorial will be debuted at an all-star fundraiser concert at the Roundhouse venue in 2014.

Mitch tells BBC Newsbeat, "(On the) 14 September, 2014 at the Roundhouse in Camden Town, we'll be unveiling Amy's statue... (It) will be accompanied by a concert. So far, the support from stars has been incredible. 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."

The news comes after the inaugural Amy Winehouse Foundation Ball was hosted by her producer pal Mark Ronson in the U.K. capital on Tuesday (20Nov12).

Winehouse was 27 years old when she was found dead at her Camden home last year (11).
