Think you can stand up to the late, great Amy Winehouse‘s vocal chops? This may be the opportunity for you!
To honor the 10th anniversary of Back to Black, the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Island Records are launching a cover competition. All proceeds will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation, which contributes their proceeds to using music therapy and education to help the younger generations cope with mental health issues, homelessness, and drug and alcohol addictions.
Those interested in participating can download the original instrumentals for “Back to Black,” “Rehab,” “Tears Dry on Their Own” and “Just Friends”. After creating your masterpiece you can upload it onto YouTube and also complete a entry form at www.amywinehousefoundation.org. The talented winner will record the cover in a professional studio with contest judges Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.
To help launch the project, Amy’s producer Salaam Remi posted a video explaining his role in the contest. Watch below.
The contest ends on January 31, 2017, so hurry and channel your inner-Amy now.
