Amy Winehouse music sales surge in wake of the soul singer's death

UPI News Service, 07/24/2011 

A surge in sales of Amy Winehouse music was reported by iTunes in the wake of the 27-year-old soul singer's death in London.

Winehouse's 2007 album "Back in Black" jumped to the top of the iTunes sales charts and the video for her hit single "Rehab" moved into the top 10.

The Hollywood Reporter said Sunday that "Back in Black" was a double-platinum smash for Winehouse, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard charts. It was edged out by Herbie Hancock for Best Album at the Grammys, although it won in five other categories.

While "Back in Black" was a breakthrough for Winehouse, her off-stage antics and substance-abuse issues prevented her from becoming a consistent superstar.

Winehouse died Saturday in London. The cause of death has not been officially determined; however drugs and alcohol are suspected of being a factor, the report said.
