AMY WINEHOUSE FOUNDATION LAUNCHES GLOBAL COVER CONTEST

31/10/2016

Together with the Amy Winehouse Foundation, we’re inviting fans to recreate classic Back to Black songs to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of the album’s release.

Lyric videos for Back to Black, Rehab, Tears Dry On Their Own and Just Friends from Amy Winehouse’s 2006 masterpiece Back to Black. Available through the official Amy Winehouse Vevo channel, each video features a link to download the backing track.

The original instrumental backing tracks and lyric videos will offer fans the chance to film and upload their own versions of Amy’s iconic songs to YouTube. Amy’s longtime collaborators and friends Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi produced the songs and are now patrons of the Amy Winehouse Foundation. They will be judging the entries and picking a winner who will have their performance recorded and filmed in a studio and premiered on the official Island Records YouTube channel.

Island Records and Vevo will all be donating funds from the campaign to the Amy Winehouse Foundation. Since her tragic passing in 2011, the charity, created in Amy’s name, aims to help vulnerable young people facing a variety of complex issues such as homelessness, drug & alcohol addiction, mental health conditions and unemployment.

With the funds raised from this campaign, the work of the Foundation can continue the lasting legacy of Amy Winehouse. For full details of the charity fund raising and the competition entry form, visit: www.amywinehousefoundation.org
