Amy Winehouse’s music lives on. A snippet of “Body & Soul,” the late songstress’ duet with her idol Tony Bennett has surfaced. The eloquent jazz tune, which is billed as her “final recording,” was completed in March at London’s Abbey Road Studios for Bennett’s 85th birthday album Duets II, due September 20.
“Amy was so excited to be working with Tony Bennett and really looking forward to her fans hearing this new recording,” stated her father Mitch Winehouse. “The fact that Amy’s voice is sounding as amazing and beautiful as ever and she is singing with the great Tony Bennett seems the most fitting tribute of all at this very difficult time.”
Proceeds from the track will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was started by Winehouse’s family to help youth charities.
