With the the classic album Back To Black having turned ten over the weekend, the Amy Winehouse foundation have launched a global cover contest.

New original lyric videos for 'Back to Black', 'Rehab', 'Tears Dry On Their Own' and 'Just Friends' from Amy Winehouse’s 2006 masterpiece Back to Black have been uploaded to Vevo by her record label.

The videos feature a link in the description box whe you can download the backing track to practice your vocal takes. For those of you looking to enter you have to film your version on your YouTube channel and then send it to the charity via this link. Or you can tweet it to @amysfoundation with #BacktoBlack10.



The winner will get a chance to record their version professionally in a studio, and have their video featured on the official Island Records UK YouTube account. So a great opportunity for anyone loooking to get recognised in the industry whilst simultaneously helping the charity.

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.

This is a way of building a better, brighter future for the world and they deserve every bit of support.
