Sunday, on what would have been Amy Winehouse's 31st birthday a statue of her was unveiled in Camden, North London.

Amy's parents were on hand and her father kissed the cheek of the statue upon it's unveiling.

"It's a day of incredibly mixed emotions,” Mitch Winehouse told ABC Radio. “They don't put statues up for people who are with us anymore so it reinforces the fact that physically she's gone but spiritually she'll never leave us,” Winehouse said.

Her mother, Janis, had trouble finding the right words to express her thoughts, and she told the newspaper, "It's just a wow, a definite wow. I am pleased with how the statue turned out because you can see that it's Amy."
