A life-size bronze statue of late singer Amy Winehouse was unveiled in Camden town neighborhood in north London on the occasion of her 31st birth anniversary.

Winehouse's parents, Mitch and Janis Winehouse, and fans gathered to remember the late singer Sunday, reports The Guardian. "I'll be coming to visit it all the time. It was difficult to see the sculpture at first but I'm getting used to it. It looks just beautiful," he said in an interview with The Guardian, planting a kiss on the statues cheek. "It's just a wow, a definite wow," Winehouse's Mother said in the interview with The Guardian.

"It's a day of incredibly mixed emotions. They don't put statues up for people who are with us anymore so it reinforces the fact that physically she's gone but spiritually she'll never leave us. I feel sad, very, very sad," Mitch said.

Created by sculptor Scott Eaton, the statue is mostly colourless -- aside from a red rose in Winehouse's signature beehive hairdo. Scott told BBC, "meant to capture her attitude and strength, but also give subtle hints of insecurity." he tried to show the insecurity of the late singer with the details of the in turned foot, hand holding the skirt and expressions.

Winehouse died at the age of 27 in July 2011 due to alcohol poisoning.
