Beloved soul siren Amy Winehouse has left an indelible mark on music and pop culture everywhere. With the shocking, untimely death that everyone is still questioning, there’s a lot to be said about the legacy she leaves behind. That very legacy continues this week two-fold with what would’ve been Winehouse’s 28th birthday on September 14th. Jointly celebrating her life and her music, the same day we’ll celebrate her highly anticipated duet with veteran crooner Tony Bennett.

The single and accompanying music video for “Body & Soul” (recorded at the Abbey Road Studios in London this past March) features Amy Winehouse and Tony Bennett sweetly serenading each other on one of the year’s most stellar sonic pairings. Check it out below if you still haven’t heard it yet. In the meantime, find a way to remember Amy Winehouse beyond her birthday and the music. One idea is to make a donation to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. A portion of the proceeds from the success of the single “Body & Soul” will also go to the foundation.
