“Body and Soul”, recorded by Amy Winehouse and Tony Bennett on March 23, 2011 at Abbey Road Studios in London, is released in its entirety today to commemorate what would have been Amy’s 28th birthday. “Body and Soul”, became the final recording Amy ever made before her passing on July 23rd of this year.
The track is available to purchase on iTunes HERE with all proceeds going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, also launched today. The video can be viewed on VEVO below.
Tony Bennett commented, “We had a beautiful time recording together in the studio and I knew that Amy was very happy with how she performed that day. I thought she was absolutely brilliant and this recording truly captures the essence of her unique artistry. She was a rare talent.”
The Amy Winehouse Foundation, set up by Amy’s family and friends will stand alongside Amy’s music as her legacy. The Winehouse Family have created this charitable body in Amy’s name to beneﬁt young people in the UK and around the world.
Since her untimely death on July 23rd this year, there has been an international outpouring of love and goodwill to Amy’s family and friends. Many of Amy’s fans and well wishers have contacted the family to ask if there is a way that they can help. Amy loved children and the family wants the foundation to support causes that would have been close to Amy’s heart.
The Foundation will raise money to support projects and charities that need help for speciﬁc causes.
One of the ﬁrst major donations to the Foundation will come from sales of Body & Soul.
