Beyonce suggested to donate £100,000 by Mitch Winehouse for her cover of Amy Winehouse’s Back to Black

Mitch Winehouse has suggested that Beyonce should donate £100,000 to the Amy Winehouse Foundation for her cover of the late singer’s iconic track ‘Back to Black’.

Mitch Winehouse took to Twitter earlier today revealing that this had been the first he had heard of the cover.

He wrote: “First I have heard about Beyonce and Back to Black. Sounds like some of you don't like the idea."

Mitch then went on to suggest that Beyonce donated £100,000 to the Amy Winehouse Foundation which aims to help young people who suffer from drug abuse.

He continued: "I don't know this but what if Beyonce gave £100,000 to foundation. Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there.”

And just in case people still thought he knew about the cover, Mitch repeated that he had NO IDEA it had been recorded, got that?

He concluded: "Let me repeat. This is the first I have heard of Beyonce doing Amy's song."

Well, considering Beyonce recently signed a $50 million endorsement deal with Pepsi, £100,000 is small change to her.

As well as unveiling part of her Amy Winehouse cover today, Beyonce also provided fans with a sneak peek of her latest song ‘Mirrors’.

And it seems that said endorsement deal with Pepsi is already paying off in dividends, with the song debuting on its latest advert.

A huge pat on the back for who ever came up with that idea at Pepsi HQ, who doesn’t want to hear the new Bey track?

Beyonce has yet to respond to Mitch’s donation suggestion.
