The Amy Winehouse Foundation has launched a covers competition to celebrate the 10th anniversary of her 'Back to Black' album.
The charity has teamed up with Island Records to launch the project which gives fans of the late singer the chance to record a cover of one of the album's biggest hits.
Official lyric videos for the singles 'Back to Black', 'Rehab', 'Tears Dry On Their Own' and 'Just Friends' have been made available through Amy's Vevo channel, and each video features a link to download the backing track.
Fans are then invited to use the original instrumental backing tracks to film and upload their own versions of Amy's iconic songs, and a winner will be picked by the singer's friends and collaborators Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.
The winner will have their performance recorded and filmed in a studio and premiered on the official Island Records YouTube channel.
All funds raised by the competition will be donated to The Amy Winehouse Foundation, which has been helping vulnerable young people facing issues such as homelessness, drug addiction, and mental heath conditions since the tragic passing of the star in 2011.
In August, The Amy Winehouse Foundation opened Amy's Place, a women-only recovery centre in East London which aims to provide support for young women aged 18 to 30 who are recovering from drug and alcohol addiction.
Another project, Amy's Yard, is a 12-week course which helps to support the personal development of young people through the medium of music.
The competition opens on Monday (31.10.16), and the Foundation hopes the funds raised by the campaign will help continue the lasting legacy of Amy Winehouse.
