Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse's 'Body and Soul' video: Watch it here

It’s easy to get swallowed up in the mystery of Amy Winehouse’s untimely July 23 death. But first things first, let’s remember that she was an amazing singer. Thankfully, Tony Bennett won’t let us forget.

This morning on what would have been Winehouse’s 28th birthday, the legendary singer released the full clip of his time at Abbey Road Studios in London with the late English siren while recording their duet “Body and  Soul.” The video shows a strong Winehouse coolly cooing alongside Bennett.

Even more precious than seeing her perform so well are the intimate moments revealed here. Seeing her alert, laughing, and hanging out behind the soundboard is how she should be remembered. Check out the clip after the jump.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation also launched today. Proceeds from “Body and Soul” will be donated to it. Though not specifically detailed, the charity will benefit children.

Amy’s mother Janis says in a statement, “We want to give money to projects that make a direct difference. It is a source of great comfort to know that Amy would be proud of this and right behind it.”

What do you think of their duet? Let us know.

    Great. Bravo. You listen to Amy and you hear Billie, Bessie, and Dinah. (Hopefully lots of you know who Billie, Bessie, and Dinah were.) Bittersweet video, but I
    am so glad to have it.

      jfms777~I totally agree with you, the minute she started singing I could hear them too, especially Billie. It is very bittersweet to think that she will no longer make beautiful music for us to enjoy :(

    Hey, Everyone here missing Amy …. I just found I’m guessing a new artist from Australia by the name of Washington (1 word) with a single called “Holy Moses”. Its frickin’ AWESOME, and I don’t know too much about this chick but she has some serious pipes & talent from what I can tell by listening to the single. I HOPE her label tries to work her here in the U.S….but she def. blew me away like the first time I downloaded Miss Winehouse and I just wanted to share.

    Is it weird that I have tears in my eyes? So sad that we won’t get to enjoy more music from her.

    Still missing Amy, I have this song on repeat at work. Her Vocal control is unbealiveable. I was a fan way before Fade to Black burst onto the scence. She was already an underground favorite here in new york RIP Amy we love you

    So sad. She’s missed and so loved!

  • daphne

    Beautiful. Wow.

    That is so much classier than the pop crap that comes out these days. I bet she would love if her brief life could bring back some of this great old style. I sure would.
