Amy Winehouse's father has signed a deal to pen a memoir for HarperCollins. Mitch Winehouse's book, Amy, My Daughter, is projected for a worldwide release in summer 2012. The memoir will focus on the late soul singer's life, from her childhood through her major success and struggles with addiction.

Proceeds from the book will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organization being set up by the singer's father to help those dealing with adversity, particularly young people facing troubles with addiction.
