Amy Winehouse’s tearful dad unveils Music Walk of Fame tribute in Camden

Amy Winehouse's dad Mitch wiped free-falling tears as the Music Walk of Fame tribute in the late star's name was revealed in Camden.

It has been nine years since the Valerie hitmaker died aged 27 of alcohol poisoning on July 23 in 2011.

Now songstress Amy was celebrated as one of the best entertainers in the music spheres with this honorary award.

Camden had a place in the late singer's heart as it was a spot in London she often frequented and loved to be.

Overcome with emotion, Mitch reached down to touch the special stone which was laid out to commemorate Amy's successes.

Her dad Mitch noted the significance: "Amy was in love with Camden and it is the place her fans from all over the world associate her with."

The late singer's father was joined by his ex-wife and Amy's mother Janis as well as the star's aunt Rene Selner.

Amy's parents, who divorced in 1993, come together again to mark the milestone of their daughter's stellar singing career being honoured in north London.

Her mother Janis also spoke out to say some kind words about her daughter and her love of Camden.

She said: "I am pleased with how the statue turned out because you can see that it's Amy … Camden is Amy's place, it's where she belongs."

The slate read: "Amy Winehouse, the Music Walk Of Fame, ICON, Camden, England 2020."

Camden always held a place in Amy's heart and she lived there until she died in 2011.

The singer loved to drink at the local boozer The Hawley Arms and she often pulled pints at The Dublin Castle.

Amy has already been immortalised in the north London spot with a 5ft 3in statue of the singer in Camden's Stable Market which first found its home in 2014.

The songstress played her last ever gig at The Roundhouse on Chalk Farm Road.

She found fame and built a legacy on the back of her dropping debut album Frank in 2003.

Her music met with great success including a string of Brit and Grammy awards throughout her career.
