The life of Amy Winehouse will be celebrated this summer.

London's Jewish Museum in Camden will launch an exhibition titled "Amy Winehouse: A Family Portrait" in July, which will feature never-before-seen photographs of the late singer and her family, along with some of her belongings, according to BBC News.

Some of the photographs will include Friday-night dinners and her brother Alex's bar mitzvah.

Her older brother, along with his wife, Riva, helped curate the display, and called it a "personal and intimate exhibition about a much-loved sister."

Alex added that Amy was always one who was "proud of her Jewish-London roots," and added, "Whereas other families would go to the seaside on a sunny day, we'd always go down to the East End. That was who we were and what we were. We weren't religious, but we were traditional. I hope, in this most fitting of places, that the world gets to see this other side not just to Amy, but to our typically Jewish family."

Additionally, a sculpture of the star, designed by Scott Eaton, will reportedly be displayed at the famous music venue, The Roadhouse, the last place Winehouse performed at before her death.
