Amy Winehouse’s life to be told through a musical
Late singer Amy Winehouse’s life, her struggle with addiction, and her untimely death from alcohol poisoning are set to be documented in a new West End musical. Winehouse was found dead at her home at the age of 27 in July 2011. “A musical celebrating her life is being talked about for the near future. It is something I’d really like to happen and I’ve said I’m happy for it to go ahead,” Winehouse’s father, Mitch, told The Sun newspaper.
“It would be for the West End. We want to do something that remembers Amy for what she was; there’s so much more to her than just the drugs and the alcohol,” he added.
