A Danish theater company tried to make Amy Winehouse’s dad give over the rights to her music and he said no, no, no.
The Royal Theatre in Denmark announced that they are canceling a play about Amy Winehouse’s life because her father, Mitch, has blocked the use of her music, and photographs, The New York Times reports.
The musical, which was set to debut in January, was based off of interviews, acceptance speeches, concerts, newspapers articles, letters and songs from the late singer’s two records, 2003’s Frank and 2006’s Back To Black.
In an interview with the BBC last week, Winehouse refuted reports that there was a musical being made about Amy’s life. He did announce though that he is planning a tribute concert for February 2014 in honor of his late daughter.
A spokesman for Koda, the Danish copyright agency handling rights for the theater company, said that Winehouse did not a give a reason for his objection.
