Amy Winehouse tribute poster appears at Camden Town station
The poster will remain at the station for two weeks to mark the anniversary of her death
The poster was unveiled at the station yesterday (July 9) and will be on display until July 23 - a year to the day that she passed away. Designed by contemporary British artist Johan Andersson, the poster was originally unveiled last year, two weeks after the singer's death.
Amy Winehouse was found dead at her Camden home on the afternoon of July 23, 2011. She was 27-years-old. Coroners later confirmed that the singer, who had battled drink and drug addiction for several years, had died of alcohol poisoning.
After her death, the singer's family set up a charitable trust in her name. The Amy Winehouse Foundation aims to provides support for "young people, especially those who are in need by reason of ill health, disability, ?nancial disadvantage or addiction".
A posthumous compilation of previously unreleased recordings, 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures', was released in aid of the foundation last December. It debuted at Number One on the UK albums chart and has since gone double platinum. Last week (July 5), Winehouse's father Mitch revealed that two further posthumous albums are planned.
