Before Amy Winehouse tragically passed away on July 23, she recorded one last track with music legend Tony Bennett entitled, "Body and Soul". In honor of what would have been her 28th birthday, Bennett released the single and accompanying video on Wednesday, September 14.

The track will feature on Bennett's upcoming album, Duets II,
available September 20. It is also available on iTunes now;
according to Winehouse's website,
all proceeds from iTunes sales will go to the newly-launched Amy
