Amy Winehouse '...up in heaven waving her magic wand'

Mitch Winehouse has told fans of his late daughter that he has spoken to her through a psychic.

He said he communicated with Amy Winehouse, who died last year, on Tuesday and she "is fully behind everything that we're doing and she's up in heaven waving her magic wand".

He was speaking at an event in New York to launch the US version of the late singer's charitable foundation and was joined by Winehouse's mother, Janis, and her younger brother, Alex.

They held a press conference in Joe's Pub, where Winehouse gave her first American performance on January 16, 2007.

The foundation was formally established in the UK last year and to date has allocated more than STG275,000 ($A426,753) to various charities, organisers said.

A brief film showing the foundation's British achievements was shown during the conference where the Winehouse family discussed their daughter's passion for wanting to help children.

The US foundation's aim is to "support and empower children in need through music therapy and music education".

The family announced a donation of $US10,000 ($A9,734) to the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra - first introduced to the Winehouses by CNN anchor Soledad O'Brien.

Mr Winehouse also performed four songs with a jazz band, at one point kissing his mobile phone which had a photo of his daughter on it.

He will release a book about his relationship with his daughter, who died of accidental alcohol poisoning on July 23 at her London home. It's titled Amy, My Daughterand will be released on June 26. All proceeds will benefit the foundation, he said.

The organisation also announced the Amy Winehouse Inspiration Awards and Gala, to be held on September 10 in New York. - yahoo

Amy Winehouse's father speaks to his daughter through a psychic.

Mitch Winehouse – who was left devastated when the Rehab singer died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27 in July last year at her north London home– says he still has contact with his daughter and she is delighted with her family's efforts to help others through the Amy Winehouse Foundation which they set up in her memory.

Speaking as he launched the US branch of the foundation New York yesterday (April 11), along with Amy's mother Janis and younger brother Alex, Mitch revealed their communication through a psychic and added: "[Amy] is fully behind everything that we're doing and she's up in heaven waving her magic wand."

The family revealed the American part of the organisation will focus on children "without access to music education and music therapy," and announced a donation of $10,000 to the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.

They also spoke of plans to hold the Amy Winehouse Inspiration Awards and Gala on September 10 in New York.

The UK Amy Winehouse Foundation has already raised over US$1 million to help disadvantaged youth. - thesundaily
