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.
