Winehouse remembered a year after dead
A year after singer Amy Winehouse was found dead in her northern London home, fans and family come together to remember her legacy.
Winehouse died in her home in north London on July 23, 2011 with an alcohol blood level five times the legal driving limit, an inquest found.
According to British media reports, Amy Winehouse’s family will gather in one of her favourite haunts to mark the first anniversary of her death tonight.
"To mark the event, the family will be spending the day together, remembering a daughter and sister that meant the world to them," they said in a statement on her website.
"Whilst the world remembers a gifted artist who was taken from us all at a ridiculously young age, we will be thinking of a person who gave so much, and in turn was given so much, by a family still struggling to come to terms with the fact that, where there should be four, there is only three,” the family wrote before thanking the fans for contributing to the singer’s “positive legacy”.
Fans have already start leaving tributes outside her former home, with cards, pictures and flowers piling up.
