Lebanese-born singer Mika is planning to prove he can get along with the Jewish Amy Winehouse through making music.
Mika is all behind Amy Winehouse's back should she comes back from her battle against drugs to the recording booth. The Lebanese singer said he would love to collaborate with Winehouse in a Jewish album to prove that people from feuding nations of Lebanon and Israel can actually got together peacefully.
"I heard Amy will be recording an album of Jewish music once she gets well and I'd like to make a contribution to it," Mika said. "I really like her music. Think about this - me, a part-Lebanese artist working on a Jewish album - I think that's a nice statement. I'd like to make a statement some day."
Winehouse's producer friend Mark Ronson, revealed last month that Winehouse has penned several holiday songs for the Jews called "Kosher Kisses" and "Alone Under the Mistletoe". However, she is currently treated at a London rehab and recently was put on a drip in hospital because of withdrawal from her treatment.
