    The Sunday Mirror has quoted Amy Winehouse's father as saying the singer is suffering from an early stage of emphysema and an irregular heartbeat. Doctor's discovered her health problems after Winehouse collapsed last week and was taken to a London area hospital for tests.

    "The doctors have told her if she goes back to smoking drugs, it won't just ruin her voice, it will kill her," Mitch Winehouse said. "There are nodules around the chest and dark marks. She has 70-percent lung capacity."

    Winehouse spent all of last week in the hospital. She's still expected to perform at a London concert for the 90th birthday of Nelson Mandela this Friday, as well as the Glastonbury music festival on Saturday.

    "When she's been inactive work-wise, then that's when the problems really start," Amy's father added. "The doctors have said that medically there isn't any reason why she can't do Glastonbury."
