When the song reached #87 on the Billboard Hot 100 for the week of October 1, 2011, it made Bennett, at age 85, the oldest living artist ever to chart on the Hot 100, surpassing the previous record of George Burns.

It also gave Bennett the longest overall span of appearances on the Hot 100; his version of “Young and Warm and Wonderful” appeared on the very first Hot 100 chart dated August 4, 1958. The song received a Grammy Award at the 54th Grammy Awards in the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance category on 12 February 2012. Proceeds from “Body and Soul” go to benefit The Amy Winehouse Foundation, an organisation created to raise awareness and support for young adults struggling with addiction.
