Amy Winehouse's family is continuing to move on from the tragic passing of the talented British soul singer by putting her north London home up for sale.
“The Winehouses have decided to put the house on the market, with great regret,” a spokesman for the family told Reuters via email.
The Winehouses note that it simply didn't feel right for any of them to reside there. “Amy loved that house but none of the family felt it appropriate that they should live in it and it was not practical to keep it empty while paying the costs of its upkeep,” they explained.
Fans of Winehouse have ventured to the Camden property to show their respects for the late, great singer. They even transformed a nearby square into a shrine in the days following her untimely death.
Various newspaper reports suggest that the three-bedroom home is currently on the market for £2.7 million (or $4.2 mill for we Americans).
Winehouse’s final album Lioness: Hidden Treasures was released posthumously last December and contains a collection of unheard tracks that feature the likes of Nas and Tony Bennet. Winehouse seemed to have had a profound impact on Nas.
“It’s a bittersweet feeling to do something with her now that she’s not here. I’m happy… the sweet part is that we have the music, fans have new music from her,” he explained. “It’s new because they’ve never heard it. The bitter part is that she’s no longer here to really give it to us and to really live her music and for us to see her smile and hear her voice."
The rapper also recalls his fond memories of hanging with the songstress in the studio, saying, “She was hilarious, man. She would make you laugh. To her, music came so easy.”
