Another Amy Winehouse tribute concert

The late Amy Winehouse
Amy Winehouse's father Mitch Winehouse has revealed further plans for a tribute concert reports Digital Spy. The musician is to honour his daughter's memory with a concert on September 14, 2014 and plans to book an all-star line-up for the show. "September 14, 2014 at the Roundhouse in Camden Town, we'll be unveiling Amy's statue," Winehouse told BBC Newsbeat. "It will be accompanied by a concert. So far, the support from stars has been incredible. We want to make it like a Live Aid type concert where we get maybe four, five, six hours' worth. People doing a couple of songs each." He added: "Obviously that involves a lot of people. So far the response has been incredible." Proceeds from the event will be donated to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was set up shortly after her tragic death in July 2011. The charity will fund various projects to combat alcohol and drug-related abuse in the UK, and is currently planning an educational project that will visit schools. "We're ready to roll that out in March. I think we are going to be starting with 45 schools," Mitch Winehouse said. "We're working with people in recovery to deliver the message to young people."
