Amy Winehouse is planning on performing at London's Pentonville Prison to lift the spirits of her jailed husband.

The troubled singer has been distraught since her spouse Blake Fielder-Civil was taken to the notorious jail while he awaits sentencing for allegedly perverting the course of justice.

Now Amy plans to show Blake her support by treating him and the other inmates to a performance.

A source close to the singer is quoted by Britain's Daily Sport newspaper as saying: "Amy has been in pieces ever since Blake was arrested. She can't stand the thought of him being alone in prison and wants to play a show there."

"She thinks it would be a fitting tribute to him, it would cheer him up and it would also help her cope with being separated from him."

Amy wouldn't be the first musician to showcase her talents within prison walls.

Late country legend Johnny Cash famously recorded the live album 'Johnny Cash at Folsom Prison' in 1968, while British bands Dirty Pretty Things and The Enemy played at Pentonville Prison in August for a suicide prevention charity.

Meanwhile, Blake was denied bail last week, and will spend Christmas in jail.

However, Blake's mother Georgette Civil thinks prison is the best place for 25-year-old Blake at the moment.

She said: "He's finally taking responsibility for his behaviour and accepts that the and Amy are totally responsible for the mess they're in. He's using his time in prison to overcome his drug habit."
