Amy Winehouse Fans Asked to Cover Songs from ‘Back to Black’
If you've ever wanted to cover an Amy Winehouse song and record it in a professional studio while having it filmed, you now have your chance, thanks to Mark Ronson, Salaam Remi and the Amy Winehouse Foundation.
To celebrate the 10th anniversary of the singer's beloved Back to Black album, fans can send in their own rendition of either "Rehab," "Tears Dry On Their Own," "Just Friends," or the title track "Back to Black" for a contest. All of the instrumentals have just been made available on iTunes for the first time ever.
At some point — both Ronson and Remi who produced the album — will pick the very best submission, and he or she will be filmed recording the song inside a studio.
Afterwards, both Vevo and the singer's label, Island Records, will give all of the proceeds to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, that works with young people who suffer from drug addiction, homelessness, mental health issues or other problems.
The competition starts today (Oct. 31), ends on Jan. 31, 2017 and the winner will be announced on Feb. 15 2017.
