Amy Winehouse may be gone, but her voice lives on in her duet with Tony Bennett. The jazzy “Body And Soul”, off the legendary crooner’s upcoming Duets II (out September 20), is the pop singer’s final recording — at least until her stolen demos inevitably leak. Listen to a preview of the two singers on their collaboration below.
Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse – “Body And Soul”
Even though this is just the last 45 seconds of the song, we’re blown away with how good Amy sounds. The track was recorded last March at Abbey Road Studios in London, and we can’t even believe this is the same woman who couldn’t even get her words out while taking the stage in June. Many of Winehouse’s performances the last two years have been more or less a mess, which is why it’s so surprising to hear her majestic voice sounding the way it once was.
All proceeds from the sale of the song will go to the Amy Winehouse Foundation — which, as of now, has yet to be formed as someone besides Amy’s parents has already registered that name. Oh, dear.
