"The first time I met [Tony Bennett was when] I took my dad, my stepmother, and my boyfriend to see him at Royal Albert Hall. And we went both nights." Amy Winehouse's eyes glowed with a natural, infectious excitement as she shared this memory with an interviewer earlier this year.

Today, the full music video for Winehouse's collaboration with Bennett -- on "Body and Soul," which Winehouse said is her father's favorite song -- has been released. You can watch it here:


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

Bennett spoke tenderly of Winehouse (who would have turned 28 today) in a video interview recorded before the younger singer passed away this July, saying: "Amy Winehouse was my favorite to perform with on the whole album. ... Everybody just said, 'Ooh, I don't know how you're going to handle her,' but I felt completely different; I said, boy, she really loves to perform." Watch his interview here, via The Guardian:
