The late Amy Winehouse will be awarded the first 'star' on London's Music Walk of Fame on what would have been her 30th birthday.

The honour will be awarded to the tragic Back to Black singer when London’s version of the Hollywood Walk of Fame in Los Angeles, is launched in September.

Organisers announced earlier this month that they have been given the go ahead to honour the world's top music legends with sidewalk tributes in the London borough of Camden, where dozens of the U.K.'s biggest acts first broke into the spotlight.

Bands thought to be honoured includ The Clash, Oasis, Blur, Madness, and The Libertines who all have strong links to the area.

It’s reported by NME that Winehouse - who lived in Camden until her death from alcohol poisoning in 2011 - will be the first to be set in stone.

A paving slab containing an imitation vinyl record printed with the words "Amy Winehouse, London, England - Icon" will be unveiled on 14 September the date of Winehouse's 30th birthday.

Organiser Lee Bennett said, "One of the reasons we chose Camden is because it's a living and breathing music community and its venues and musicians are what inspired the idea."
