London: Amy Winehouse`s father Mitch has said that he had no idea that Beyonce was covering his late daughter`s hit `Back To Black` - and suggested that she should donate some cash to the charity, which he set up.

"I don`t know this but what if Beyonce gave 100,000 pounds to foundation. Do you know how many kids that would help? Just putting it out there," the Sun quoted him as tweeting.

It was recently revealed that the 31-year-old singer was covering Amy`s iconic song for the soundtrack of the Hollywood remake of `The Great Gatsby.`

Beyonce is also planning on giving the song an original twist and will duet with Andre 3000 from Outkast.

But Mitch revealed that he had not been informed about any of the plans for the cover.

"First I have heard about Beyonce and Back to Black. Sounds like some of you don`t like the idea," he posted on his Twitter account.

"Let me repeat. This is the first I have heard of Beyonce doing Amys song," he added.
