According to reports, a new project will allow the late singer to be seen by audiences across the world next year.

The late Amy Winehouse is set to return to the stage in the form of a hologram.

The Back to Black singer, who tragically died aged 27 in 2011, will be celebrated by a new project by BASE Hologram, which will use "new state-of-the-art proprietary technology" alongside live backing singers.

The project is said to have the backing of the Amy Winehouse Foundation and the Winehouse family.

“This is a dream for us,” Amy’s father, Mitch Winehouse, said in a statement. “To see her perform again is something special that really can’t be put into words. Our daughter’s music touched the lives of millions of people and it means everything that her legacy will continue in this innovative and groundbreaking way.”

Brian Becker, the founder and CEO of BASE Entertainment and BASE Hologram, added: “Amy was a powerhouse in every sense of the word. She played by her own rules, pioneered her own sense of style of music and because of that we know she is the perfect person to headline this type of project.”
