LONDON (AP) — Amy Winehouse lived and died in north London's Camden neighborhood — and in the month that she would have turned 30, her presence is still being celebrated.
The beehived diva's spray-painted image adorns several Camden walls, and fans still flock to the area more than two years after her 2011 death from accidental alcohol poisoning at age 27.
Winehouse got her start amid the pubs and clubs of Camden, so local businesses are holding a series of events this month to raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity set up by the singer's family.
An exhibition opening Thursday at the Proud art gallery includes photographs of the singer — many taken in Camden — along with paintings, sketches, graffiti art and the street sign from the square where she died at home, which is covered with tributes from fans.
"Camden meant everything to Amy, and Camden recognizes that," the singer's father, Mitch Winehouse said Wednesday at a preview of the show.
Other events for the charity, which helps young people nurture their love of music and steer clear of drugs, are a pop-up shop selling Winehouse-themed merchandise, an Amy Winehouse walking tour, benefit gigs and a charity skydive by the singer's mother, Janis.
A bronze statue of the singer is soon to be erected at the Roundhouse concert hall, where she gave her final public performance.
