Amy Winehouse dad marks death anniversary

Press AssociationPress Association 24/07/2016

The father of Amy Winehouse will mark the fifth anniversary of the death of the singer with a concert to raise money for her foundation.

The 27-year-old died of alcohol poisoning at her home in Camden in north London on July 23, 2011.

Mitch Winehouse will perform songs he and his daughter loved at the Pizza Express Jazz Club on Sunday to raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, the charity set up in her name after her death.

Winehouse was found dead after a long-publicised battle with drink and drugs.

Her family set up the charity on what would have been her 28th birthday to combat drug and alcohol abuse among young people and help them overcome eating disorders and self-harm.
