Amy Winehouse's parents plan to convert her London home into the headquarters for the Amy Winehouse Foundation, a charity organization to to help children in need, say reports.

The 10-room, $4 million house in Camden, North London, where the singer was found dead July 23, will house the organization, whose official mission statement is set to be announced Sept. 14, which would have been Winehouse's 28th birthday.

"The foundation is going to help thousands of people. That is Amy's legacy," Amy's father, Mitch Winehouse, Tweeted Wednesday.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation will be partially funded by proceeds from Winehouse's last recording, a duet with Tony Bennett of the classic "Body and Soul," that will appear on Bennett's upcoming album, Duets II.

The cause of Winehouse's death, at age 27, is still being determined, pending toxicology results.
