Amy Winehouse's final song, a duet with legendary crooner Tony Bennett, will be aired for the first time on Wednesday (14.11.2011)

The song will be released on what would have been the soul singer's 28th birthday and was recorded at the Abbey Road studios in London. Speaking to MTV.com Bennett said, ""We had a beautiful time recording together in the studio, and I knew that Amy was very happy with how she performed that day. I thought she was absolutely brilliant, and this recording truly captures the essence of her unique artistry. She was a rare talent." The recording session was recorded by OSCAR-winning cinematographer DION BEEBE as part of an upcoming documentary about the 85-year-old singer. Body and Soul will appear on Bennett's new album, Duets II, which will also feature Michael Buble, John Mayer as well as Lady GaGa.

Amy Winehouse was born in London and began her musical career at the age of 10 when she formed a short-lived rap group with her friends. However, after attending the prestigious BRIT school she released her debut album, Frank in 2003. This was later followed by Back to Black in 2006 which received critical and commercial acclaim sending the singer to superstardom as well as winning her five Grammy Awards and three Ivor Novello awards. In July this year (2011) she was found dead at her London flat from as of yet undetermined causes.
