LONDON (AP) - Amy Winehouse’s family has launched a youth charity in her name to mark what would have been the singer’s 28th birthday.
Winehouse, who had long fought drug and alcohol problems, was found dead at her London home on July 23. Her family says toxicology reports indicated there was alcohol in her bloodstream but it was unclear whether this had contributed to her death.
Her mother Janis said: “It is a source of great comfort to know that Amy would be proud of this.”
The charity will derive much of its first income from the release of Winehouse’s duet with Tony Bennett, “Body And Soul,” on Wednesday.
