Lady Gaga sings for Amy Winehouse foundation

Lady Gaga will record an Amy Winehouse song in support of the late singer’s foundation.

The pop star was asked to sing by Amy’s father Mitch, to help raise funds for the foundation which offers support to young people whose lives are affected by drugs and alcohol.

The Amy Winehouse Foundation was set up on September 14, 2011, just two months after the star’s death at the age of 27.

Mitch said Lady Gaga was only too happy to help.

The death of the Grammy-winning star at age 27 affected millions of fans around the world.

He told The Sun: "We've got this new YouTube channel where stars all over the world are going to do an Amy track and however many hits we get after the first 2 million, we start making money for the foundation.

"Leona Lewis is going to do one, Lady Gaga will do one, and a few other stars.”

While the YouTube channel will hopefully bring in some much needed funds, Mitch also said it would also be a great way to remember Amy.

The foundation recently joined forces with Centra Care and Support to open a home for recovering female drug addicts in East London.

Amy’s stepmother, Jane said the project will make a huge difference by supporting so many young women because it will enable them to have a safe environment in which to rebuild their lives and put into practice all they’ve learnt on their treatment journey.

"Fresh starts are difficult to make; full of challenges, but at Amy's Place we will give young women the tools and support to help them make this a reality.

"There is a huge lack of support to meet the needs of women in this area and we hope Amy's Place will show just how much more effective we can be."
