#Amys30 Event Supports Amy Winehouse Foundation

Amy Winehouse Foundation
Featureflash /

Mitch Winehouse, father of late singer-songwriter Amy Winehouse, has organized a series of events for the singer’s 30th birthday this month called #Amys30.  Mitch Winehouse says that he wants the world to understand that his daughter was just a normal person “from a good family”, and that people struggling with addiction are human after all.  They have planned a series of events, including an exhibit at the Jewish museum in London.  All events will take place in Amy’s home neighborhood of Camden.  Proceeds from the events will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, established in 2011 after the pop-star’s death from alcohol poisoning.  The purpose of the charity is to help people suffering from drug addiction.
