A year-and-a-half after the death of Amy Winehouse, it has been announced that a statue in her honour is due to be erected, due to be completed in time for her tribute concert, on the 14th September 2014.

Mitch Winehouse reports that the aim is to make the concert itself as big as possible, being quoted as saying that, "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." Mitch Winehouse helped to set up the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity that aims to support those affected by alcohol and drug misuse. It is the foundation itself which is putting on the event, which would have coincided with the singer's 31st birthday.

Whilst Mitch Winehouse's plans for an event the size of Live Aid are admirable, as equally are the plans for a statue featuring prominently on the landscape of Camden, it will hopefully be the legacy of Amy Winehouse's talent as a musician which will continue to burn brightly throughout the years.
