Amy rises up to top of charts
TRAGIC singer Amy Winehouse has shot to the top of the album charts – more than four months after her death.
Her posthumous collection Lioness: Hidden Treasures, which features original tracks and covers, was released yesterday.
Winehouse’s father Mitch tweeted: “Just been told. Amy at Number One...my heart is sad but bursting with pride. Mitch.”
Some of the proceeds from the album, put together after the 27-year-old was found dead in bed in her flat in Camden, London, will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up in the star’s name.
Producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson pulled the 12 songs together after listening to thousands of hours of vocals by the singer, many of them from sessions for her hit albums Frank and Back To Black.
Mr Winehouse recently spoke of the painful process of listening to the album for the first time, saying “it was a very difficult time for us”.
