According the latest reports, word is that Amy Winehouse’s family will be converting her home into the headquarters for a charity in her name that will work to help underprivileged children.

People reports:

The 10-room, $4 million house in Camden, North London, where the singer was found dead July 23, will house the organization, whose official mission statement is set to be announced Sept. 14, which would have been Winehouse’s 28th birthday.

Winehouse’s father, Mitch, took to Twitter to tell fans thank you for their support and interest in the Foundation’s work. Also a jazz musician, Winehouse senior says the details about the charity’s work is still in development.

While the mission of The Amy Winehouse Foundation is not known yet, its funding has been disclosed. At least part of the charity’s work will be funded with proceeds from Winehouse’s last recording before her death. The record was a remake of “Body and Soul” with Tony Bennett. The track will be featured on Bennett’s soon to be released album, Duets II.

    I am glad that they’re doing this in memory of her in hopes that someone else’s life will be rescued from this sad disease. I wish them much success in this endeavor.

    **Oops! I mixed this up with a prior report. Boy am I off today** Anyway, glad they’re turning her tragic death into something positive for the youth, our most precious ones. Unselfish and much needed help.

    This wasn’t her house, her house was in Camden square where she was found dead. That’s one of her parents houses I think, but definitely not hers.
