Moreover, it was said that iTunes the world's largest music retailer and Amazon Music profited much from pop singer 's death. The reason is that iTunes posted numerous images of the late Amy Winehouse on the homepage with the caption, "Remembering Amy Winehouse". Similarly, Amazon Music has also created a right-hand side box that "Platinum selling and five time Grammy winning singer Amy Winehouse has died at the age of 27. Well known for her soulful voice, Winehouse's numerous hits include 'Stronger Than Me', 'Love is a Losing Game', and 'Rehab.'" Below Amazon's brief obituary is a link encouraging visitors to "Read more about Amy Winehouse". Howerver, it is true that when users click the Amazon link or the iTunes image, they are not directed to the Guardian's tribute or to Rolling Stone's aggregation of musicians' responses to Winehouse's unexpected death but a page where they can purchase her music.
