Amy Winehouse and Tony Bennett duet 'Body and Soul' released

amy-winehouse-singing-getty.jpgOn what would have been the late singer's 28th birthday, Amy Winehouse's duet with Tony Bennett "Body and Soul" was released Thursday (Sept. 15).

The song and video were recorded in March at the famed Abbey Road Studios in London. Winehouse died just a few months later of undetermined causes.

Tony Bennett, the legendary 85-year-old crooner, says in a statement, "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."

The video also features behind-the-scenes in which Winehouse discusses her thoughts on working with Bennett and the song as a whole.

"It couldn't have been better," she says with a smile.

Proceeds from the song's sales will benefit the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
