For what should have been Amy Winehouse's 28th birthday, MTV Wednesday morning aired Body and Soul, a duet with jazz legend Tony Bennett.
According to MTV.com, the song and video is the last recording by the Rehab star. Winehouse died July 23 of undetermined causes in her London apartment.
We had a beautiful time recording together in the studio, and I knew that Amy was very happy with how she performed that day, Bennett said in a statement. I thought she was absolutely brilliant, and this recording truly captures the essence of her unique artistry. She was a rare talent.
The song and video were recorded on March 23 at Abbey Road Studios in London and the proceeds from its sale will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. The recording session was filmed by Oscar-winning cinematographer Dion Beebe (Chicago, Memoirs of a Geisha) as part of an upcoming documentary on Bennett, MTV reported. The song will appear on the 85-year-old's Duets II, which also features him singing with Lady Gaga, Michael Bublé, Queen Latifah, Carrie Underwood and John Mayer.
