Amy Winehouse and Tony Bennett track an instant hit

By  |  0 Comments

It was Amy Winehouse’s birthday last Thursday (may she rest in peace) so it’s timely that the singer’s duet with Tony Bennett, ‘Body And Soul’, has just been released online. This was the final recording Amy made before her passing on July 23 this year. Says Tony Bennett, “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.”  

Donation of the proceeds from the sale of the ‘Body And Soul’ single and video will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The track is also featured on Bennett’s forthcoming CD due out September 23 which will also feature duets with Queen Latifah, Lady Gaga, Carrie Underwood and Michael Buble.
