Remembering Amy Winehouse: One Year Anniversary

It's been one year since the sudden death of singer Amy Winehouse. The 27-year-old was found dead in her London home from alcohol intoxication. Today, fans are paying triute outside of her home with flowers, notes and candles. 

According to news reports, Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, told the Associated Press last week that family and friends will mark the anniversary by going to Amy's house for Jewish prayer and to be with her fans. Then, close friends will party at Jazz After Dark, which was Amy's favorite jazz bar.

Mitch Winehouse told AP, "There are going to be lots of tears and lots of laughter and that is exactly how Amy would have wanted it."

Amy's legacy still grows and she is featured on Nas' new album where she sings the hook on a song entitled "Cherry Wine." There is also reportedly more music coming out from Amy that will be released in the future.

There is still talk of a possible Amy Winehouse biopic. Also in the year since her death, the launch of the Amy Winehouse Foundation has dedicated itself to helping at-risk youth, and will hold its first gala in October.

Mitch released a book about his daughter "Amy, My Daughter" which includes some of Amy's personal letters to him. The book is a memoir to his daughters brief life.
