11 January 2013, 08:11

The 'Tears Dry On Their Own' singer's family say they are "proud" of Amy's recognition at this year's awards.

Amy Winehouse's family have said they are "delighted" by the late singer's posthumous nomination for the BRIT Awards 2013.

It was announced yesterday (10th January) that the 'Back To Black' singer has been nominated in the category for British Female Solo Artist, following the release of 'Lioness: Hidden Treasures' at the end of 2011.

The singer's regular producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi, as well as her family, selected a number of unreleased tracks and demos for the record, and the BRITs have honoured Amy by including her in this year's category.

"The Winehouse family are delighted with this wonderful nomination for Amy," they said in a statement following the news. "It proves that her music still has an enormous effect on the public now and for the generations to come.

"We are proud that her legacy will live on forever throughout her incredible songs and performances and the many, many young people that are being helped through the Amy Winehouse Foundation."

Amy Winehouse will now compete against the likes of Emeli Sande, Paloma Faith, Jessie Ware and Bat for Lashes in the British Female Solo Artist category at next month's BRITs ceremony.

The BRIT Awards 2013 will take place at London's O2 Arena on 20th February.
