Remembering the life of an authentic soul rebel

On Wednesday, fans around the world will remember Amy Winehouse and mourn the tragic loss of a soul diva on what would have been her 28th birthday.

Despite the sadness it will be a new beginning for her dad Mitch.

It's the day of the launch of the foundation he has set up in her name to help young addicts and offer underprivileged kids scholarships to performing arts schools.

"I want her to be a role model," the 59-year-old told the Sun.

"She hasn't always been, for obvious reasons. But now we've got the chance."
