“I’d gladly surrender myself to you, body and soul,” Tony Bennett and Amy Winehouse sing on “Body And Soul,” a track off Bennett’s upcoming Duets II (out September 20). And, despite the facts that a May-December romance between these two was highly unlikely and Winehouse sadly passed away in July, the emotional impact they hit you with is a powerful and believable one. Now the video for the duet has premiered on what would have been Amy’s 28th birthday. Watch below.

In the clip, Tony and Amy stand at microphones in a darkened studio and deliver their lines while exchanging playful looks. All we can really do is let out a bittersweet sigh and wonder how the smiling woman in this video (which was shot in March, in London) is now gone.

At least this happy moment in time was captured in what is said to be the final music video Winehouse took part in.

    Sinatra said that Tony Bennett was the “greatest singer ever” or words to that effect! He certainly spoke the truth on that occasion,irregardless of his intent. Tony’s handling of the duets with various “newcomers”is still classic.The voice has survived for so many years of fantastic phrasing,especially the bridge,which most warblers won’t even
    touch,then smoothly into the song.He stands in the highest realm of vocalists extant.
    The fact that he is extant,and performing as he does,is magic in itself.I am truly amazed
    by their expertise.Lady Gaga is superb in her rendition of …Tramp,very much a throw-
    back to the “greats”a la Peggy L,et al.Poor Amy,whose untimely passing denied us a
    rich program of that fabulous rendering of that fabulous,and unique,voice makes for a
    sad sad day.I loved these duets,but rejoice in the continued greatness that is Tony B…..

  2. Tony can do no wrong. He is my all-time favorite. And his life is an example of what it takes to be a real star. Sinantra called him ‘the singer’s singer’ once in an interview. The man is amazing. He can teach all of today’s youngsters coming into this business how to do it…..80+ years old!

    WHEN I DECIDED TO LEARN ENGLISH, IN MY NATIVE DOMINICAN REPUBLIC, THE FIRST AMERICAN SONG I LEARNED WAS BECAUSE OF YOU. EARLY FIFTIES. I HAVE ADMIRED TONY BENNETT EVER SINCE. INTERVIEWED HIM ONCE IN NEW YORK AFTER A PERFORMANCE AT THE SHERATON CENTER.

  5. A tear came to my eye and a smile came to my face when I listened to the wonderful voices of Tony and Amy, she will be missed but remembered forever thanks to videos such as this!!!
