Amy Winehouse Discusses Recording “Body And Soul” With Tony Bennett

As though she never left us, Amy Winehouse appears in a behind-the-scenes look documenting her recording session with Tony Bennett as the two performed the 1930s song “Body And Soul” in March 2011. It’s bittersweet to see new footage of Amy, particularly when she’s acting as bubbly and put together as she is during her interview. Watch late singer speak of her experience recording the duet in the video below.

Amy, who calls Mr. Bennett “Tone”, says she first met the singer when she took her family to go see him perform at Royal Albert Hall — two nights in a row. The pop star recounts how ecstatic her father was upon hearing that she would be teaming up with the legendary crooner for his Duets II album.

“When my dad saw that me and Tony would be singing ‘Body And Soul’, he said, ‘Oh, it’s only my favorite song in the world you’re going to sing! Oh my god! Do you know it?’” To which Amy responded, “Of course I know it, Mitchell, I’m your daughter. Of course I know it!”

She continues: “It was really exciting that he chose that song because I do love it, is such a beautifully written song. And its a song you can do a lot with… and the ending just worked out perfect. Our singing together just blended… it couldn’t have been better.”

The full video for “Body And Soul” will premiere Wednesday September 14. Duets II drops in stores September 20.
