Tony Bennett to Record Duet With Amy Winehouse
By Sarah Crow Posted Jan 12th 2011 11:00AM
The New York Post reports that Bennett is gearing up for a duet with soul sensation Amy Winehouse, whom Bennett claims is a big fan of his work.
Bennett confirmed, saying, "We're working on partnering up to record a duet together, but it's still in the works."
Bennett's wife, Susan Bennedetto, says that Winehouse "went to see him twice while he was performing in London."
With any luck, Bennett's influence will rub off on the troubled star -- the singer, who admits to battling cocaine addiction in his memoir 'The Good Life,' has been sober since the late 1970s and routinely denounces the lifestyle that almost cost him his career.
Check out Bennett's famous duet with Stevie Wonder.
