Amy Winehouse joins 'rich list'

Amy Winehouse was recently nominated for three Ivor Novello awards

Singer Amy Winehouse has been included in this year's Sunday Times young music rich list for the first time with an estimated fortune of 10m.

The 24-year-old star ranks 10th, along with R&B star Craig David and pop star Will Young, in Britain's top 100 richest people in music under 30.

Charlotte Church, 22, is ninth with a fortune of 11m shared with rugby star Gavin Henson. Joss Stone is eighth.

George Harrison's son Dhani Harrison tops the list with a 160m fortune.

The 29-year-old musician is the only son of the former Beatle, and finished Harrison's last album after he died in 2001.

Doubled wealth

In second place is violinist Vanessa-Mae Nicholson, 29, followed by Coldplay trio Guy Berryman, Jonny Buckland and Will Champion, with an estimated 30m each in the bank.

Lead singer Chris Martin, 31, was too old to be included in the newspaper's survey.

The highest new entry is Manchester-born fashion model Karen Elson, whose entry in sixth is because the 29-year-old shares her 25m fortune with White Stripes frontman husband Jack White.

Katie Melua, 23, has reportedly more than doubled her wealth to 18m taking seventh place.

In 13th place was Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins, 27, followed by 23-year-old X Factor chart-topper Leona Lewis, who makes her debut in the list at number 14 with 6m.

Corinne Bailey Rae, whose husband died from a suspected drugs overdose last month, and Natasha Bedingfield are also worth 6m, the newspaper says.

Former Blue star Simon Webbe and jazz musician Jamie Cullum have also been included in the list.
