British singer and songwriter, Amy Winehouse died three years ago on July 23, 2011, when she was only 27 years old. It’s been said that the songstress died while drinking vodka and watching YouTube videos of herself at her home in north London. Amy drank so much she stopped breathing and fell into a coma. Sunday, September 14, would’ve been Winehouse's 31st birthday and to commemorate that, a bronze statue of the singer was unveiled in the neighborhood of Camden in London. The statue presents her in her usual beehive hair, wearing a star of David necklace. Her father Mitch said Sunday it was "incredibly emotional" to see the statue. "It is like stopping her in a beautiful moment in time and we really hope Amy's fans love the statue.”
