Amy Winehouse's Home Will House Foundation

Amy Winehouse’s home will be turned into the headquarters of a new foundation named in her honor, her parents announced.

The $4 million north London home will be a center for causes the late singer held dear, especially youth programs.

The 27-year-old diva, famous as much for her battles with drug and alcohol as her soulful voice and meteoric music career, was found dead in her apartment July 23.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation will officially launch on Sept. 14, the day that would have been the “Rehab” singer’s 28th birthday.

Some of the group’s revenue will come from sales of her final record, “Body and Soul.” The duet with Tony Bennett was recorded last spring for his upcoming album.
