Snippet of Amy Winehouse and Tony Bennett Duet ‘Body and Soul’ Streams on the Web
The clip is of the end of the song when Bennett and Winehouse’s voices are in full harmony. The chillingly beautiful cover is set to be released as a single, with all proceeds benefiting the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which was created to help charities connected with children and youths.
Winehouse was a longtime fan of the legendary crooner’s, and the 85-year-old recently admitted he thought he could help the troubled star. “I was convinced I would be able to help her and talk her out of … Taking drugs,” he told Billboard, adding that the foundation is “a great way to turn something positive out of this.”
Winehouse’s father, Mitch, explained that Amy was beyond excited about the collaboration. “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,” he said.
