A year after the death of Amy Winehouse, her father is working to use her legacy to help people. In a new interview, Mitch Winehouse talks about the foundation established in her name and hints at the possibility of a biopic.

“Whatever we do we have to make sure it’s done in good taste,” he told the Associated Press. “We don’t want a sensationalized movie going out, you know, but equally there’s no point in sort of massaging the fact that Amy was a alcoholic and drug addict; no point in pretending that didn’t happen.”

Following Amy’s death, he established the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which has raised more than $1 million for various charities in the U.S. and the U.K. The foundation has been funded by private donations, her posthumous album, ‘Lioness: Hidden Treasures,’ and Mitch Winehouse’s book about his life with her. Winehouse said that the writing process was “quite cathartic.”

For today (July 23), however, Winehouse’s friends and family will observe a yahrzeit, the Jewish ritual observed on the anniversary of a death. This will be followed by a trip to Jazz After Dark, a London jazz bar she frequented often.
