Amy Winehouse gets a monument in Belgrade

The city of Belgrade will announce an international competition for the conceptual design of the monument Amy Winehouse, which should be placed in the Lower Town of the Belgrade Fortress, the place where the singer held her last concert, reports the Deputy Mayor of Belgrade Goran Vesić.

On his official Facebook page, Vesić reminded that the British artist Amy Winehouse held her last concert ten years ago, on June 18, 2011, in Kalemegdan.

“After a little over a month, Amy died. Belgrade will announce an international competition for the conceptual design of the Amy Winehouse monument at the place where she held her last concert. I hope that next year at this time Belgrade will have a modern sculpture at the place where Amy held her last concert. “, stated Vesić.

To remind you, Amy Winehouse gained world fame with the album “Back To Black“, Which was published in 2006, and with which she won five Grammys.

She had her last performance in Belgrade, in June 2011. The chaotic set on which Winehouse murmured the lyrics and forgot the names of the band members led to the cancellation of the European tour and was an indication of the tragedy that would follow.

Namely, she was found dead on July 23, 2011 in her apartment in London. She died of alcohol poisoning, and after leaving this world at the age of 27, she joined the “Club 27” – a group of extremely talented and influential rock musicians who died at the age of 27 – Brian Jones, Jimi Hendrix, Janice Joplin, Jim Morrison, Kurt Cobain and others. .

Amy Winehouse has won over audiences as well as music critics around the world with her authentic appearance, distinctive voice and incredible talent, but above all her sincerity which is rarely present in today’s music industry.
