Amy Winehouse still making millions four years after death

Amy Winehouse has racked up posthumous earnings of more than $3.8 million since her death in 2011.

The British singer died of alcohol poisoning at the age of 27 in July, 2011, and her family went on to release an album of her previously unheard recordings, Lioness: Hidden Treasures, later that year (11).

It has now emerged that Winehouse's music has pulled in millions since her death, with the late star's Cherry Westfield Ltd company earning profits of around $2.2 million for the year to April, 2014 alone.

According to the figures, obtained by Britain's The Sun newspaper, Villeston Ltd, which was set up by Winehouse's parents, is also making money along with her AW Promotions firm, but Lioness Records, which the singer set up in 2009, has lost around $336,000.
