Today, Amy Winehouse would have turned 28 years old. The singer’s tragic death on July 23rd still smarts fans terribly, so we thought we’d mark her birthday by posting this tender video of Amy performing “Body and Soul” with Tony Bennett.
The song was recorded at Abbey Road Studios, and all proceeds from the single will benefit the newly-launched Amy Winehouse Foundation.
And “Body and Soul” held a special part in Amy’s heart, because it was her dad Mitch’s favorite. On the day she recorded it, Amy shared the following story: “My dad personally himself, he was like, ‘Oh, it’s only my favorite song in the world you’re going to sing. Oh my God. Do you even know it?’ I’m like, of course I know it, Mitchell, I’m your daughter. Of course I know it.”
We miss you, Amy.
