Amy Winehouse's Duet with Tony Bennett Released
The single and video of "Body and Soul" has also been released yesterday on the iTunes Store to benefit The Amy Winehouse Foundation.
The Winehouse family announced yesterday morning that they are creating a charitable body, The Amy Winehouse Foundation, to benefit young people around the world. The Foundation will raise money to support projects and charities that need help for specific causes. Tony and Amy's record labels, Sony Music Entertainment and Universal Music Group, as well as iTunes, will donate net proceeds from sales of the single and video to the foundation.
"Body and Soul" is one of 17 tracks included on Bennett's Duets II CD, coming out Tuesday, September 20. Heralding in the iPod generation to his fanbase, in the same way decades ago Tony was embraced by the MTV Generation, the Duets II project is one of the most highly anticipated CDs for the fall. Duets II features a roster of celebrated artists--including Lady Gaga, Michael Buble, John Mayer, Aretha Franklin, Alejandro Sanz and Carrie Underwood--who joined Tony live in the studio to perform from his catalog of hits.
