In celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the release of Amy Winehouse's Back to Black, the Amy Winehouse Foundation and Island Records are asking for fan covers of album tracks. Those interested can download the original instrumental tracks for "Back to Black", "Rehab", "Tears Dry on Their Own", and "Just Friends" and upload their own versions. The winners will get to record their cover in a professional studio with contest judges Mark Ronson and Salaam Remi.
All contest funds will be donated to the Foundation, whose mission is "supporting and empowering children and young adults in need through music therapy and music education and works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. We aim to support, inform and inspire vulnerable and disadvantaged young people to help them reach their full potential.
The contest is currently open and goes until January 31st, 2017.

Back in August, the Amy Winehouse Foundation established Amy's Place, which looks to address the special needs of female addicts. The house provides a "legacy of support for women to reintegrate into society with the best possible opportunity of sustaining their recovery and building a fulfilling life."
