Amy Winehouse's Life to be Celebrated at London Jewish Museum

The life of late soul singer Amy Winehouse will be celebrated this summer at London's Jewish Museum in an exhibition running from July 3rd through September 15th, 2013.
The "Rehab" singer's family has given the Camden-based Jewish museum unprecedented access to her belongings in order to show her as a North London Jewish girl.
Items on display include her record and book collections, and a vintage bar from her former home.
Photographs are also heavily featured in the exhibit, called Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait.
Additionally, a documentary about the singer's life is also being planned by Senna director Asif Kapadia.
"Amy was a once-in-a-generation talent who captured everyone's attention; she wrote and sung from the heart and everyone fell under her spell," Kapadia and his producer James Gay-Rees said. "But tragically Amy seemed to fall apart under the relentless media attention, her troubled relationships, her global success and precarious lifestyle. As a society we celebrated her huge success but then we were quick to judge her failings when it suited us."
