AMY Winehouse's father speaks to his daughter through a psychic.

Mitch Winehouse - who was left devastated when the 'Rehab' singer died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27 in July last year at her north London home- says he still has contact with his daughter and she is delighted with her family's efforts to help others through the Amy Winehouse Foundation which they set up in her memory.

Speaking as he launched the US branch of the foundation New York on Wednesday (11.04.12), along with Amy's mother Janis and younger brother Alex, Mitch revealed their communication through a psychic and added: ''[Amy] is fully behind everything that we're doing and she's up in heaven waving her magic wand.''

The family revealed the American part of the organisation will focus on children ''without access to music education and music therapy,'' and announced a donation of $10,000 to the New Orleans Jazz Orchestra.

They also spoke of plans to hold the Amy Winehouse Inspiration Awards and Gala on September 10 in New York.

The UK Amy Winehouse Foundation has already raised over $1 million to help disadvantaged youth.
