Lady Gaga is set to record an Amy Winehouse track to raise money for the late singer's foundation.

Amy's father, Mitch, asked Gaga to support the Amy Winehouse foundation that was set up in 2011 after Amy died.

“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 two million, we start making money for the Foundation," Mitch told The Sun.

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

“Hopefully it’s going to be a source of revenue for the foundation. We need money and that’s a great way to get cash and remember Amy, go on YouTube and have fun.”

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