Amy Winehouse's family has launched an American branch of the foundation that her father Mitch had set up in her name after her untimely death in July 2011. The foundation unveiled plans for an annual awards show to honor the charitable celebs out there.
Mitch, and Winehouse's mother Jan, revealed they are setting up the Amy Winehouse Inspiration Awards and Gala to reward those who have helped inspire greatness in others. They made the announcement at Joe's Pub in New York City, where Winehouse launched her career in the US. How fitting. Touche.
The event will be held for the first time on Sept. 10 at the Waldorf Astoria in Manhattan and will feature musical performances as well as feting honorees of the Amy Winehouse Foundation Inspiration Award.
The goal is to hold the event annually with the intention of raising funds and awareness for the charity.
What do you think of these awards?
