Late singer Amy Winehouse has been honored on what would have been her 31st birthday with a life-size statue in her beloved Camden Town neighborhood of north London.

Winehouse’s many fans will have no problem recognizing the singer, who is portrayed sporting her distinctive beehive hairdo.

Winehouse’s father Mitch said Sunday it was “incredibly emotional” to see the statue.

“It is like stopping her in a beautiful moment in time,” he said. “We really hope Amy’s fans love the statue.”

Winehouse died three years ago after battling drug and alcohol abuse.

Her family has set up a foundation to help young people struggling with similar problems.
