Final Amy Winehouse Music Video Released On Her 28th Birthday [VIDEO]

September 14th, 2011 // 1 Comment

Recorded in March at Abbey Road studios, this cover of the 30s jazz standard is the final recording to feature the late Amy Winehouse. The “Body and Soul” video has been released on what would have been the singers 28th birthday.

Made with Tony Bennett for his new Duets II album, Winehouse joined a diverse lineup including Lady Gaga, Queen Latifah and Willie Nelson in covering standards alongside one of her heroes (the first thing she said when she met Bennett at the recording studio was “I’m not going to cry”).

In the video she’s clearly nervous, shuffling about but gazing admiringly at Bennett, and her voice is still a thing of wonder when it arrives for the second verse, the jazzy inflection pulling at the melody and working as the perfect counterpoint to Bennett’s velvet croon.

We miss you Amy. Watch the video…
