Amy Winehouse's fans put her back at top of the charts

Monday August 1, 2011

Amy Winehouse's Grammy award-winning album Back To Black has soared to the top of the charts in the wake of her death.

As tributes poured in to the troubled star, who was found dead in her Camden home last Saturday, fans flocked to buy her records.

They sent five hits into the top 40 – a record for the late soul and jazz star.

And while Back To Black became this week's best-selling album – holding off Adele's 21 – her debut effort Frank came in at number 5 and the box set Frank/Back To Black entered at number 10.

The success came as the 27-year-old's devastated family waited for the results of toxicology tests to establish the cause of her death.

Relatives believe her decision to stop drinking – following protracted battles with drugs and alcohol – may have been a contributing factor.
