“Body and Soul,” became the final recording Amy ever made before her passing on July 23rd of this year.

Tony Bennett commented:

“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.”

Plans will be announced for donation of proceeds from the sale of “Body and Soul” single and video to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Also, royalties from her Autumn / Winter 2011 clothing collection for British clothing label Fred Perry will be donated to the Foundation.
