LONDON - In the month she would have turned 30, Amy Winehouse is being celebrated in the London neighborhood that was her physical and spiritual home.
The diva got her start amid the pubs and music clubs of Camden, and died of accidental alcohol poisoning at her house in the area in July 2011, aged 27.
The neighborhood still attracts her fans, and local officials and businesses are holding a series of September events to raise money for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a youth charity established by the singer's family.
The events include an exhibition at the Proud art gallery of photographs of Winehouse -- many taken in Camden -- alongside paintings, sketches and graffiti art.
Her father, Mitch Winehouse, said Wednesday that "Camden meant everything to Amy, and Camden recognizes that."
