A London exhibit honouring the life of Amy Winehouse is set to open in September (13) to mark would what have been the tragic singer's 30th birthday. The Rehab hitmaker died of accidental alcohol poisoning at her home in Camden on 23 July, 2011 and now her family is launching Amy Winehouse: For You I Was a Flame at Proud on 12 September (13). The exhibition will feature works from graffiti artists and photographers, as well as art from Winehouse's own collection. A statement from her brother Alex reads, "We're all very excited about the exhibition at Proud. Amy's fans were absolutely amazing in the wake of her passing, and showed their love and loss in the most fantastic ways. "This, along with the photos and graffiti art, shows Amy at her glitzy best, and her most vulnerable, demonstrating the effect she had on her followers. We hope that everyone who comes feels the same way." This is the latest exhibit to be created in her honour - last week (03Jul13) Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait premiered at London's Jewish Museum, where keepsakes from the singer's life and career are now on display.
