LONDON — Amy Winehouse’s family says the singer’s final recording will be released as a charity single next month.

The late singer’s father said Thursday the proceeds from “Body and Soul” — a duet with Tony Bennett — will go to the newly established Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Mitch Winehouse says releasing it in September as a charity single was “the most fitting tribute of all” to his daughter.

The two singers recorded the single at London’s Abbey Road Studios for Bennett’s forthcoming “Duets II” album.

The foundation is set to fund a range of projects focusing on young people. The family also hopes to establish a drug rehab center for addicted youths.

Winehouse, who had struggled for years with drug and alcohol addiction, was found dead at her London home on July 23.
