The real legacy of Amy Winehouse

As a new biopic of Amy Winehouse is released, we shine a light on the real legacy of the iconic singer who died tragically at the age of 27. Join us on a visit to Amy’s Place, a supported housing facility in London for young women who have left treatment for drug addiction, operated by The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was launched by the family in September 2011, on what would have been Amy’s 28th birthday.
