Amy Winehouse’s Net Worth

At the time of her death in 2011, Amy Winehouse had a net worth of $4 million. Amy Winehouse was noted for her soulful, jazzy, and R&B-infused voice.

She recorded two albums, “Frank” and “Back to Black,” the latter of which became one of the best-selling albums in UK history and gave rise to several hit songs, including “Rehab.”

Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning in 2011 at the age of 27 after a long battle with drug and alcohol addiction. It is also known as “intestate” that Amy passed away without making a will. Eventually, her father Mitchell was appointed as administrator of the $4 million inheritance, which was assessed in 2011.

Early Life

Amy Winehouse was born in London, England, in 1983 to a cab driver and panel installer, Mitchell, and Janis, a pharmacist. Her parents were Russian and Polish Jews, and she had an older brother named Alex. The young Amy Winehouse attended a Jewish Sunday school while attending Osidge Primary School in Southgate, London.

When she was nine years old, her parents divorced; as a result, she lived with her mother and spent the weekends with her father. Winehouse began training at the Susi Earnshaw Theatre School in 1992, encouraged to do so by her grandmother.  After that, she enrolled in the Sylvia Young Theatre School for full-time training.

Winehouse began writing her own songs when she was just 14 years old.  She eventually worked as an entertainment writer for the World Entertainment News Network and sang in a local band called the Bolsha Band.

With the National Youth Jazz Orchestra in 2000, Winehouse became the orchestra’s featured female vocalist. In 2002, she got a contract with Simon Fuller’s 19 Management.

Career

Winehouse released her debut album, “Frank,” in 2003 after signing with EMI and later Island Records. It reached the UK album chart in 2004 and was nominated for two Brit Awards, receiving widespread acclaim.

Winehouse and producer Salaam Remi won the Ivor Novello Award for Best Contemporary Song for the song “Stronger Than Me” while the album went platinum.

“Take the Box,” “Pumps/Help Yourself,” and “In My Bed/You Sent Me Flying” were all released as singles from the album.

“Back to Black,” Amy Winehouse’s second album, was finished in five months thanks to the work of producers Salaam Remi and Mark Ronson.

Winehouse promoted “Back to Black” with a slew of high-profile shows in late 2006 and early 2007, including appearances at Glastonbury and Lollapalooza festivals. In February of 2008, Winehouse won five Grammy Awards for her efforts.

Winehouse became the first British female artist to win more Grammy Awards than any other female artist in the history of the Grammy Awards.   When Winehouse was nominated for “Love is a Losing Game.” and ultimately won, she became the only artist in history to receive two nominations for the Ivor Novello Award.

The song “It’s My Party,” by Lesley Gore was covered by Winehouse and Mark Ronson on the album “Q Soul Bossa” in 2010. A four-song session to advertise her fashion brand and a 40-minute concert at the party of a Russian oligarch were also performed that year. Next, Winehouse did five shows in Brazil before beginning a twelve-leg European tour in Belgrade, Serbia.

Audiences and the media, on the other hand, criticized her performances, which ended with her being booed off the stage because she was too drunk to sing. Winehouse recorded her final duet with Tony Bennett on his album “Duets II” which was released in 2011.

Personal Life

Winehouse had an affair with chef and musician Alex Clare in 2006 while on a break from her on-and-off partner Blake Fielder-Civil. Fielder-Civil and Winehouse’s marriage was tainted by domestic violence, drug use, and self-harm.

On perjury and serious bodily harm accusations filed in 2008, Fielder-Civil was sentenced to prison. In 2009, the couple separated amicably. Winehouse was also in a relationship with actor Josh Bowman and writer and director Reg Traviss.

Death and Legacy

Winehouse’s public struggles with substance misuse drew a lot of media attention. Extreme weight loss and alcohol and drug abuse were well-known aspects of her personal life. There were reports of her being hospitalized for an apparent drug overdose after she had canceled multiple gigs owing to her poor health in 2007.

Alcoholism and self-harm were further concerns that Winehouse admitted to having, and she attended rehab in 2008.

Winehouse’s security discovered her unconscious on her bed at her Camden, London, home on July 23, 2011. She was pronounced dead at the site after two ambulances arrived; a coroner’s inquest determined that she died of accidental alcohol poisoning.

After Winehouse’s death, there were many tributes. Adele, Bruno Mars, Estelle, Florence Welch, and Sam Smith are just a few of the musicians who have cited Winehouse as an inspiration. The Amy Winehouse Foundation was established soon after her death to help young people and support charitable organizations.

‘Amy,’ a biographical documentary on Amy Winehouse, was released in 2015 to critical acclaim and won a number of prizes, including Oscars, Grammys, and BAFTAs.
