Amy Lee is the maiden name of Amy Hartzler (full name: Amy Lynn Lee Hartzler), the main vocal singer and also the only original member of the rock band Evanescence. She is a very close to what a singer should be: original, natural but charming beautiful while remain uninvolved when it comes to scandal sexy images, and lastly, modesty. Her long dark hair is very rare to be found in her time (early 21st century), and also her voice and genre of music. She is probably the best amateur female singer of her time (she didn't get any vocally training, so she is an amateur). and is highly appreciated for what she has done in life. She has taken the death of her 3-years-old sister named Bonnie and create songs and lyrics based on the painful event to heal herself up and also to heal anyone who get into the same situation. She doesn't follow the style of popular (pop) singers at her time and in fact she hates those kinds of pop singers (Britney Spears for instance), which is easily seen in some interviews with her. Instead of joining the style that many hip-hop and pop singers (copycats that produce meaningless commercial songs, as criticized in many times), Amy Lee with her band separated themself from them by putting great amount of meaningful senses in their songs. The feelings, the depressions or all kind of negative feelings, she shows everyone who listens to their songs that they are not alone when facing such emotions. Lastly, caring of all epilepsy patient (who met the same fate with her brother, Robbie) she voluntarily became American Chairperson for Out of the Shadows, an international foundation with the goal of educating others about epilepsy, and since then she had met with epilepsy patients several times during her tours, to share the pain with them. All in all, not without flaws (amateur vocal skills) but a classic, original singer Amy Hartzler truely is. Among many self-claimed singers nowaday, she shines like a gem (if not a diamond) between a field of rock.
Lyrics related to her dead sister can be found in 2 songs: Hello (Fallen) and Like You (The Open Door).
