The late Amy Winehouse, who would have been 31 on Sunday, September 14, has been immortalized. To help celebrate what would have been her birthday, a beautiful brass statue of the singer was unveiled in Camden in London, not far from where she tragically died in July 2011.
Has it been three years? Wow. What a shame. She was such a huge talent and we still feel the loss.
The life-sized memorial of the singer was designed by Scott Eaton.
At the unveiling, her father Mitch said, according to NME, that "it is incredibly emotional to see Amy immortalized like this, but Scott has done an amazing job in capturing her. It is like stopping her in a beautiful moment in time. The Winehouse family are very grateful to Scott and we really hope Amy's fans love the statue. We want to remind everyone of her talent and that her legacy, through her music and the Amy Winehouse Foundation, carries on. Camden meant a lot to Amy and vice versa and to have her forever standing at the heart of the hustle and bustle of that area just fits."
The statue is all gray and Winehouse is wearing one of her familiar minis. The only color comes from an accessory. Her signature bouffant beehive boasts another of Winehouse's hallmarks -- a hair flower. The statue's flower adds a pop of bright, bold red color.
