Amy Winehouse commemorative statue unveiled

A statue of the late Amy Winehouse has been revealed at a celebratory ceremony in Camden, London (see image below).

The statue – created by sculptor Scott Eaton – was unveiled earlier today (September 14) on what would have been the ‘Back To Black’ singer’s birthday.

Placed in Camden’s Stables Market, the statuette shows Winehouse sporting her trademark beehive hairdo and wearing a mini dress and high heels.

The unveiling ceremony was attended by Amy’s parents – Mitch and Janis Winehouse – as well as actress Barbara Windsor and artist Scott Eaton.

Mitch Winehouse stated: "It is incredibly emotional to see Amy immortalised like this, but Scott has done an amazing job in capturing her. It is like stopping her in a beautiful moment in time. The Winehouse family are very grateful to Scott and we really hope Amy's fans love the statue."

The audience at the event took the opportunity to sing ‘Happy Birthday’ to mark Winehouse’s 31st birthday.

Amy Winehouse died in 2011 at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning.

Janis Winehouse recently gave an interview detailing the last conversation she had with her daughter.
