Amy Winehouse To Have A Street Named After Her!

amy winehouse

Such is Amy Winehouse’s post-death popularity that the singer will get a road in north London named after her.

According to The Sun, residents in Kings Cross were asked to submit proposals for the name of a new street in the area, following redevelopment plans.

Even though more acclaimed and historic names were mentioned, including the likes of Charles Dickens, and Frankenstein writer Mary Shelley, the name “Winehouse Street” was considered because of her overwhelming popularity.

Winehouse’s father, Mitch supported the plan, saying: “To think that our surname would be indelibly linked with London through the naming of a street after Amy is remarkable,”

“We’re a London family through and through and it would be a tremendous honour if we do become a literal part of the fabric of this great city.”

This is the fourth item to be attributed to the pop singer, following a Amy Winehouse statue that is set to be erected in Camden in 2014. This was followed by news that the singer will be the subject of a new documentary, from the director of Senna and the possibility of an Amy Winehouse movie.
