AMY WINEHOUSE EXHIBITION

An exhibition, Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait has opened at the Jewish Museam in Camden Town, London and will run until September. It has been put together with the help of her brother Alex and includes photographs, clothes, records, childhood books and Amyís audition essay to the Sylvia Young stage school.

It also traces the singerís roots back to her great-great grandparents who left Belarus in the 19th Century arriving in London by accident on their way to America.
Alex said, 'This is a snapshot of a girl who was, to her deepest core, simply a little Jewish kid from north London with a big talent who, more than anything, just wanted to be true to her heritage.'
The idea for the exhibition was sparked by the family offering the museum one of Amyís dresses for permanent display.

Museum CEO, Abigail Morris, said, 'They just came with a dress and thought this would be a lovely place for it and it grew organically from that... Everyone thinks they know who Amy Winehouse is, and they've seen the pictures, but actually she is somebody's little sister... I think this exhibition is saying this is the story of somebody who was very loved as opposed to someone who was very famous.'
