At MTV’s upcoming Video Music Awards, a music icon and multiple Grammy winner will present a special tribute to the late Amy Winehouse, RollingStone.com reports.

Tony Bennett, making his first visit to the VMAs since 1993, will unveil footage of himself and Winehouse in the recording studio working on a number for his upcoming "Duets II" album.

Bennett and Winehouse recorded the song "Body and Soul" for the album, working together in London back in March.

In a statement about Winehouse’s recent passing, Bennett said: "It was a thrill to record with Amy Winehouse, and when you listen to the recording of ‘Body and Soul,’ it is a testament to her artistic genius and her brilliance as one of the most honest musicians I have ever known.”
