Winehouse 'Keen' On Grammy Show

by | 11 December 2007

A representative for Amy Winehouse has said the troubled singer is keen on performing at the Grammy awards, in spite of her health concerns.

The Rehab star recently shelved planned performances on her UK tour as she seeks time-off to deal with her husband's problems with the law. Winehouse's spouse, Blake Fielder-Civil, is currently on remand in Pentonville Prison having allegedly attempted to bribe a barman he is accused of attacking.

People magazine cites a representative for the neo-soul crooner as saying that Winehouse is currently enrolled on a programme to help her recover her health and is writing a lot of music.

The spokesperson for the star said: "It's a really difficult time and she's been channelling it into her music."

Speaking about Winehouse's reaction to being nominated for six Grammys - the music industry's most prestigious awards - the representative told the magazine Winehouse was "thrilled" about the honour and eager to make an appearance at the show.

"Amy is thrilled to be nominated for six Grammys and is very much hoping to attend. She is determined to be ready and well for that performance," the spokesperson said.

Earlier this week, Winehouse's mother wrote an open letter to her daughter advising her to "stop, think and take stock" of her life.

Janis Winehouse, 52, urged her daughter to seek help from her family after the singer cancelled her UK tour.
