Amy Winehouse’s final song will help benefit the foundation her dad started in her name after her death. Will YOU buy it?

The final song Amy Winehouse recorded before her unfortunate death was a jazz duet called “Body and Soul” with the legendary Tony Bennett and all the proceeds from the duet will go to the foundation her dad started in her name.

“What’s going to happen is that we’re putting that [song] out ahead of the album,” Tony told MTV about the duet, which they recorded in March. “And it’s going to a foundation that her father started, to teach all the young children not to take drugs, and all the royalties of the record will go to that.”

Tony, who was nearly 60 years Amy’s senior when she died at 27, said his duet partner was fantastic when it came to jazz singing — even though she was nervous in the studio.

“That’s right, that was the last record she made,” he told the Today show Aug. 3. “It was great. She sang beautifully.”

“Body and Soul” will be released prior to Tony’s album, Duets II, which drops Sept. 20.
