Ahead of the project beginning, Abela also shared a series of pics on her own Instagram page, posing in front of a large brick mural of Winehouse, along with a few other dedication shots, which she captioned “And for London. This is for London. Cause Camden Town ain’t burnin down,” she captioned the post, in reference to Amy’s 2008 GRAMMY Awards speech.
