SHAUN CURRY/AFP/Getty Images(LONDON) — A road in north London may be named after the late Amy Winehouse, if some of the residents there have their way.

Britain’s The Sun reports residents of London’s King’s Cross neighborhood have been asked to choose 10 street names for an area that’s being redeveloped. One of the suggestions made by the locals: Winehouse Street, after the Grammy winner, who lived in nearby Camden. She died of accidental alcohol poisoning in July 2011 at the age of 27.

Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, tells The Sun, “To think that our surname would be indelibly linked with London through the naming of a street after Amy is remarkable.”

Camden is expected to unveil a statue of Amy next year. In addition, Focus Features announced last week that it’s developing a documentary about the troubled “Rehab” singer that will include never-before-seen footage.
