Winehouse was found dead at her home at the age of 27. Her family, with whom she was extremely close, are in talks to create a musical documenting the singer's life, reports dailymail.co.uk.

"A musical celebrating her life and music is being talked about for the near future. It is something I'd really like to happen and I've said I'm happy for it to go ahead," Winehouse's father Mitch told The Sun newspaper.

"It would be for the West End. We want to do something that remembers Amy for what she was, there's so much more to her than just the drugs and the alcohol," he added.
