London: A statue dedicated to singer Amy Winehouse will be unveiled near her home in Camden, north London on September 14 this year to mark her 31st birth anniversary.

The `Back to Black` hitmaker died three years ago at the age of 27 from alcohol poisoning.

The bronze statue depicts Amy holding her hand on her hip and sporting her famous beehive hairdo.

The likeness will be on display at the Stables Market in Camden, but the star`s father Mitch Winehouse originally wanted it to be located at famous music venue The Roundhouse.

"Amy was in love with Camden and it is the place her fans from all over the world associate her with. The family have always been keen to have a memorial for her in the place she loved the most, which will provide fans a place to visit and attract people to the area," Mitch said.

The statue was designed by sculptor Scott Eaton and will also feature donation information for the Amy Winehouse Foundation which was set up by the singer`s family following her death in 2011.
