Mitch Winehouse, the father of the late Amy Winehouse, has signed a publishing deal with HarperCollins.
His new book – to be titled Amy, My Daughter – is being released worldwide in summer 2012. All proceeds from the book are going towards The Amy Winehouse Foundation.
“I feel that I need to write this book to tell the true story of Amy and to help with my personal recovery,” said Mitch. “I also want to raise as much money as possible for Amy’s foundation, so all proceeds from the book will go directly to help children who are disadvantaged through illness and substance addiction. I believe that through Amy’s music, her foundation, and this book, her name will live forever.”
