The Real Amy Winehouse- in her words

Amy Winehouse was just 27 when the pop icon left this earth leaving her fans heartbroken. The pop star who died of alcohol poisoning back in July 2011 was a Pop icon in true fashion. Her Oversized Bee-hive and winged eye makeup had created a fashion movement and it became her trademark style, adopted by thousands of her fans worldwide. She was the queen who moved everybody with her unique and powerful voice and her hits like Rehab and Back to Black. But there is an Amy Winehouse who was just a normal teenage girl, a playful daughter and sister who enjoyed and loved her family and that is what her family wishes to show the world.

“We always wanted the world to know the real Amy, where she came from and what made her tick. In all aspects she was just a normal Jewish kid from North London, who did normal kid things, went to drama class, loved her grandma, her mum and dad, loved her brother.”

As told to People magazine by Mitch Winehouse, Amy’s father

On August 29th, of what would have been the Star’s 40th Birthday, Amy Winehouse’s family is releasing a book- AMY WINEHOUSE-IN HER WORDS, under the Harper Collins banner. The book would be a collection of Amy Winehouse’s personal to-do lists, poems, handwritten notes, and Family photographs, all compiled to show a version of Amy Winehouse that was just Amy.

People Magazine has released an exclusive collection of inside pictures, excerpts from the book and by the looks of it, it seems to be a moving tribute to a star gone too soon for all of us to believe.

People Magazine also reports that the Royalty from this book would go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation that her family has set up to help educate about the dangers of drugs and alcohol as well as support those who are trying to recover from substance abuse.
