The money raised from sales of the album, which is being released by Lioness Records, will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, whose mission is to help young people with drug and alcohol problems.

On July 23, fans marked the third anniversary of the death of the soul music star, who was found dead at her home in Camden Town from alcohol poisoning at the age of 27.

Mitch Winehouse, a former cab driver, released his first studio album, “Rush of Love,” in April 2011, shortly before the death of his daughter, who helped him choose some of the ballads in the album.

He also published a book in 2012, titled “Amy: My Daughter,” whose proceeds were also donated to the foundation.

“Even now it’s very painful and emotional, but you just got to get on with it. If we don’t, no one else will do what we do,” Winehouse said.

Performing on stages around the world allows him to feel closer to his daughter, Winehouse said.

“It’s just great to be able to get out and sing, it’s something I love to do. I feel that when I’m on stage, Amy’s on stage. She wouldn’t let a little thing like not being here stop her from jumping on stage,” Winehouse said.

Amy Winehouse was at the top of her career at the time of her death, winning six Grammy awards and releasing two successful studio albums, “Frank” (2003) and “Back to Black” (2006).

The singer had been in rehab several times to deal with her addiction to drugs and alcohol.

Her relatively short career was full of scandals, such as concert cancellations, problems with the police and drug overdoses.
