A concert paying tribute to Amy Winehouse is to take place at Queen’s Theatre in Hornchurch – and will be attended by the late singer-songwriter’s parents.

On Monday evening, performer Laura Jane Butler will sing some of Winehouse's most well-known tracks including Back to Black and Valerie.

The show, 'A Tribute To Amy, the Amy Winehouse Celebration', will see Mitch Winehouse and his ex-wife Janis make an appearance on stage beforehand.

Laura said she was honoured to be performing, especially for Mitch and Janis.

She added: "I know it will be the first time Mitch has seen me live so it's going to be emotional."

The show starts at 7.30pm on Monday.
