Amy Winehouse Gone But Not Forgotten
Amy Winehouse’s newest record reached number one in the charts position four months after her untimely death.
The late singer’s album Amy Winehouse Lioness: Hidden Treasures was released in the UK on December 5. The record is made up of 12 previously unreleased songs that were compiled music producers Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.
According to The Official Charts Company the record has sold 194,000 copies in the UK since last Monday, which is the biggest weekly record sale tally in Amy’s career.
Amy’s mother Janis was finally able to smile after knowing that her daughter is still alive and well through her music.
“It’s such amazing news that Amy’s album has gone to number one, and just goes to show what she still means to people,’ she told British newspaper The Mirror.
“It’s especially good for the foundation and knowing that every sale will go to help a deserving cause makes the news all the more special. I’m so proud of my daughter and so happy that she is still touching people. She’s forever in my heart.”
Some of the proceeds from the record will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which has been set up by Mitch in her memory.
Amy who battled with alcohol and drug issues was found dead at her Camden home in North London in July. It was said that her body had registered 5 times the legal amount of alcohol.
One thing about music is that even when we are gone it will still be here left as our fingerprint for everyone to see. And more so not only for everyone to enjoy but also to remember us by.
