There were rumors that Amy Winehouse would posthumously release an album of all the work she had made towards a third album before she passed away. Well now, it's been confirmed that one of the songs Amy definitely worked on was a duet with Tony Bennett.
This unlikely pairing was for Bennett's 85th birthday album "Duets II." The song is complete and is being described by some as her "final recording." The duet, "Body and Soul" was recorded in March at the famous Abbey Road Studios and Columbia Records will release the song September with proceeds benefiting the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
Amy's family has created several causes in Amy's name and this specific charity will benefit children, "This could include help for children in trouble, suffering from health problems, children's hospices, and more." says Amy's dad, Mitch Winehouse.
Mitch has spoken out previously about a charity in Amy's name to provide aid to addicts, "While it is separate from my campaign to find more help for young addicts, that may be one of the areas that Foundation contributes to. We intend to raise funds and distribute them to individual projects who apply for help," says Mitch.
Speaking on the upcoming duet, "Amy was so excited to be working with Tony Bennett and really looking forward to her fans hearing this new recording. 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."
