Back in 2012 it was said that Amy Winehouse‘s father Mitch Winehouse was going to have a statue made for his late daughter to remember her where she lived in Camden, London.
The artist who is going to make the statue Scott Eaton has said that he has been tasked with recreating the singer’s likeness and has promised that it WILL look liker her.
this is what he said:
“She’s going to be installed on the balcony in the Roundhouse [Theatre] in the Camden area, because Camden is her home where she lived. So she’s kind of looking back towards Camden Town from the balcony.
So it’s not going to be…cheesy. She’s not with a microphone or anything like that. It’s going to be kind of natural, if you will, as if she was up there on the balcony, looking back towards home.”
“There’s a lot of artistic decisions that I have to make, but you know, they’re just going to be there—it’s Mitch’s daughter, so we want him to be happy and we want her family and close friends and relatives to all kind of say, ‘That’s definitely Amy.’”
Scissor Sisters have made a BIG announcement!!
The band have been playing at the Camden Roundhouse, witch means they have no clue when they will play with each other again.
“This will be the last time we will play in London for quite some time. The ones who got us first – and always get us best.”

Amy Winehouse’s father is looking to making a statue of his famous daughter in her home town of Camden in London.
Mitch Winehouse is currently in talks with the Chalk Farm performing arts venue The Roundhouse – the site of Amy’s last concert before her tragic death – about housing her bronzed doppleganger.
Mr. Winehouse recently expressed:
“It will be bronze, lifesize, and on the first-floor balcony next to the Roundhouse bar… What we’d like to have is Amy leaning over the balcony and looking, and perhaps pointing, towards Camden Town from Chalk Farm Road.”
If the fund is secured, the statue could be up as soon as 2013.
This would be so lovely all her fans could have photos with it to remember this amazing singer!
Amy loved and lived in London’s trendy Camden neighborhood, and her daddums wanted to represent that love by the strategic placement of her memorial totem.
