Amy Winehouse Song Released on 28th Birthday
Proceeds from her Tony Bennett duet "Body and Soul" will be donated to the singer's foundation.
Amy Winehouse would have turned 28 on Wednesday.
To commemorate the day, her family is releasing her duet with Tony Bennett, "Body and Soul," with proceeds to go to her foundation "to support charitable activities in both the UK and abroad that provide help, support or care for young people, especially those who are in need by reason of ill health, disability, financial disadvantage or addiction," says her father, Mitch, on the site.
The song was recorded several months ago. She died on July 24 in her London home.
The site also features a video of Winehouse talking about how the song is her father's favorite and joking about meeting Bennett. ("Can I call him 'Tone'?" she asks.)
Of their collaboration, she says, "Our singing together just blended perfectly. It couldn't have been better."
According to People.com, Mitch will spend the week in New York City and join Bennett for the CD launch this week.
