Amy Winehouse statue unveiled in singer’s favourite London spot

Today would have been the late Amy Winehouse’s 31st birthday, and in her honour, a life-sized statue has been erected in her favourite part of London – Camden Street. The bronze statue was created by Scott Eaton, a London-based sculptor, who wanted to capture Amy’s "attitude and strength, but also give subtle hints of insecurity" in the sculptor.  

Located in Camden’s Stable Market, the statue shows the Back to Black singer with her hand on her hip, grabbing her skirt which the artist sees as “small elements that contribute to the personality of the piece”.

Talking about the statue, Amy’s dad, Mitch said: "It is like stopping her in a beautiful moment in time."

The 27-year-old died three years ago due to accidental alcohol poisoning and her family set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation to “prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people”

So if you are heading to London anytime soon, make sure you pop by the statue.
