Today would have been Amy Winehouse‘s 28th birthday, so the musical artist deserves a musical tribute. To mark the occasion, the song Body and Soul — a tune she recorded as a duet with Tony Bennett a few months before she died — will be released today in honor of her memory and creative talents as an artist. All proceeds are going to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was established by her family, “to support charities and organisations undertaking charitable activities in both the United Kingdom and abroad who help, support, or care for young people.”
The foundation’s website provides a clip of Amy discussing the collaboration with Bennett and noting that Body and Soul was her father’s favorite song. Appearing happy and at ease, she jokes about meeting the singing legend and says, “Can I call him ‘Tone’?” She also comments on the duet, stating, “Our singing together just blended perfectly. It couldn’t have been better.” Check out the clip of Amy doing what she does best — making great music. Hopefully this is how everyone will remember her. Happy Birthday Amy!
