Amy Lee

Uploaded by Ark-M


Amy Lynn Hartzler, known professionally as Amy Lee, is an American singer-songwriter, classically trained pianist and composer. She is also the lead singer to the Arkansas band Evanescence.


A truly beautiful woman with an equally beautiful soul and heart and voice to match. Haunting vocals that are also soft and sweet, every lyric of what she's singing sending a message. She's original and one of a kind, with a strong history and family background in music, she knows what she is doing and takes great care in ensuring shes not putting the same album out there every time they release one. She combines instruments that ultimately create the most beautifully dark sounds haunting and pleasant at the same time. She write her own music and loves the band and fans and remains on of the few who doesn't need to show off every inch of skin on her body in order to gain those fans. I have such high respect for her and everything she stands for. She can change lives and maintain her own life while keeping her personal life personal. She is amazing.

First of all, this list is crazy. Britney Spears ahead of Beyonce, Tarja, Avril and Barbara? Miley Cyrus ahead of Rihanna and Pink?

And most of all, Amy Lee at 12th position?

Amy Lee. I get goosebumps whenever I hear her voice. So dark, melodious and above all, powerful. It spans 4 octaves and chills any listener to their bones.

Her lyrics are so beautiful. Every one of her songs has a meaning.

She also never uses the sex appeal to attract audiences; she gets by on talent alone. Without baring 95% of her body, she remains one of my favourite singers.

Amy and Evanescence forever.

Amy Lee is absaloutely incredible! Her vocal range is amazing! She can at one point be belting out songs like 'Made of Stone' or 'What You Want' which are both physically demanding songs, and require absolute control. But not only that, she can also go to songs like 'My Immortal' 'Lost In Paradise' which are on the complete other side of the spectrum to her others. Yet she can handle these incredibly! Within her music, she not only sings, she plays multi-instrumentally during performances, and VERY rarely makes a mistake she is just incredible! Her vocal range is as equally amazing as her music. She can hit operatic notes, high notes, deep notes. She can hit any note! She can hold her notes perfectly - sending shivers down your spine! Not only is she a incredible singer/songwriter. She also paints, and has several amazing paintings, she also supports people in need, by donating to charities, sponsoring charities. She has also performed on the royal variety show... I could ramble on ...more

Amy Lee is just SO talented... Classically trained in music, plays the piano, has a spectacular voice, writes and composes all of her songs, is so gorgeous - both in looks and in personality! I could go on and on. Just so beyond happy the she and the band have made a come-back and a Hell of a come-back to note! 'What You Want' is an epic track, just like all of Evanescence's songs, it's enchanting because of Amy's vocals, it rocks because of the music and so 'loop-worthy' (playing the one song constantly on loop for ages! ) I have the band and particularly Amy for so much, their music has helped me through a lot... Family, friends, bad relationships and broken hearts. I love this band beyond words, and I love Amy Lee beyond words.

This woman's voice is truly amazing. Just to look at how young she is (especially during the times of Evanescence's really old music when she was just a teenager) and how her voice has gotten so much stronger through the years and still is improving each day. I'm sure that if not now, then later you will change on your views on Mrs. Amy Hartzler (Lee), and believe it yourself that this rockstar is amazingly one of the best of all time.


"Call Me When You're Sober"

Don't cry to me.
If you loved me,
You would be here with me.
You want me,
Come find me.
Make up your mind.

Should I let you fall?
Lose it all?
So maybe you can remember yourself.
Can't keep believing,
We're only deceiving ourselves.
And I'm sick of the lie,
And you're too late.

Don't cry to me.
If you loved me,
You would be here with me.
You want me,
Come find me.
Make up your mind.

Couldn't take the blame.
Sick with shame.
Must be exhausting to lose your own game.
Selfishly hated,
No wonder you're jaded.
You can't play the victim this time,
And you're too late.

Don't cry to me.
If you loved me,
You would be here with me.
You want me,
Come find me.
Make up your mind.

You never call me when you're sober.
You only want it cause it's over,
It's over.

How could I have burned paradise?

I went to so many evanescence concerts, and she has the best voice and writes some of her songs along with terry, but she still is very talented and kind and good looking, and I can relate to her so much. Her songs all have a story behind them. I have all their cd's. And I can listen to her over and over again.!

Why is all POP Cry babies ahead Amy Lee? In my personal View, Amy is The Most Talented Female Musician. Both as a Vocalist and a Pianist. Most of People who Haven't Voted for her Definitely Haven't Heard A Voice of an Angel.. Any One can be Second but Amy Should be One. Because She Deserve it. Go Listen to Her Acoustic Performances. But Don't Cry Because You Didn't Put your Vote For Her.. LOVE you Amy Forever!
Singing is Not just High Pitching Or Whatever. Listen to Her Voice and That's Singing.. No Matter Who Your Favorite is. Please Give the One Who Deserve the First Place.. Amy For The WIN...

As a multi-instrumentalist and talented painter (you can probably Google some of her works) who also composed a choir-piece for her high school graduation, I believe Amy has, at the very least, proven herself as a worthy and powerful artist.

As for her vocal abilities, she manages to maintain a powerful voice, even when meddling in the more operatic corners of the vocal spectrum. Few singers in music manage to keep a full, clear voice when singing that kind of music without sounding thin or fragile. For example Within Temptation's Sharon Del Adel.

No, she's not the best female singer ever, by a large margin, but she's got the whole package. Artistry and all. My vote goes to Amy Lee of Evanescence.

True story. When I was around eleven I was sleeping over a friend's house. I'm not the type that hooks on to a specific band, I just flow with the songs. Anyway I was asleep and I woke to "Bring me to Life" playing on MTV's late night music. Her voice was just so beautiful...I just woke up. I looked at the screen of my friend's T.V. absolutely in a trance I was so in love with Amy Lee's voice, and riveted by the power of the song. It affected me greatly, I don't think I've ever felt such passion for a song since. After that I bought the Fallen Album and listened to it EVERY NIGHT. Seriously. Every night for at least a year straight. To this day, and I'm 24, I can still hop to any point in that album and pick up perfectly with any of the songs. It's the only CD I've ever fallen in love with. She's the only singer I ever devoted so much attention to. Because of that hauntingly beautiful voice. She changed me. Now that's the power of a true beautiful voice.

Amy has one of the best voices in music today. She can go from singing quite heavy songs (Never Go Back, Going Under) to slow ballads (Secret Door, Good Enough, Hello, Lost In Paradise) and recreate that same power in her voice live. She has a wide vocal range and can also play many instruments (piano, harp, guitar, organ, keyboard), write hauntingly beautiful songs (such as Lost In Paradise, Swimming Home, Good Enough) and is also an artist (many of her paintings are online). She has saved many people's lives with her voice and lyrics, and she deserves the top spot.

Amy Lee is the best, I love your voice, I love your way, it is incredible, her voice is wonderful, I love her too. Evanescence will always be the best band for me, and Amy Lee is my inspiration, she's all, she is amazing, she's beautiful, your songs make me well, your voice is Charming

She is a very beautiful and talented women, I cannot describe with words what her voice and music can do. I get goosebumps every time I hear her, weather I have heard the song once or over a thousand times it always and will continue to blow me away. I believe she deserves first, as beautiful as the rest of these people are I have to say my opinion goes with Amy on being number one. She has had such an amazing skill since the beginning of Evanescence and she is still improving day by day, when you think someone couldn't get any better there it is. Amy is again very beautiful and has a great skill with the highest and the lowest of notes, my vote stands for Amy

Amy Lee has a gift. Her voice conveys such emotion, and she always sings from the bottom of her heart. That makes her even better. She isn't autotuned and is pitch perfect, her voice doesn't fit the conventional styles, it's strong and very pleasing to listen to. There is hardly anyone that can sing like this woman nowadays. It was her voice that made me want to sing. It was her voice that made me dream. It was her voice that saved my life.

THE best singer in the rock world today! She is so amazingly talented and unlike some of the ladies above her. She does not resort to taking her clothes off to get her sales up... Its done purely on her voice!

Great vocalist and a great musician too. She brought something new in mainstream rock music with Evanescence. As far as her voice is concerned (which is the subject of the poll), it has a great range and is extremely distinctive, which is all a voice needs in order to be given the "best of all times" title.

Amy Lee is the best vocalist I've heard in a while. She's amazing and has been doing this for a long time. She should get it. She deserves it! She works incredibly hard to get where she is and her songs aren't all just about one thing, nor are they all the same thing at all. She tries her best to change her albums the way she does, when she does.

Amy Lee has an amazing beautiful voice. She doesn't try to overpower, it has a haunting, bewitching quality. Her tone is unique, she sounds like rock but mixed with a sort of classical feel. I love her music, and Evanescence is one of my favorite rock bands next to Linkin Park.

Amy Lee is the best female singer ever
She's not like other blondes that show their skin just to be popular
I love you Amy you're my idol for life :))

I just cannot understand why more people voted for singers like Mariah carey than for Amy. I do not mean that negatively against mariah, but amy is such a damn amazing singer, song-writer and performer and in comparison to the other (even very good) singers on this list I can only repeat that I do not understand the decision to rate her at 10.

Not only is she a great, great singer, she is also a fabulous role model for young girls. She lets them now that they do not need to replicate a look or to be a certain weight. Or to show too much skin. That being the choir dork in school is better than being popular for something else. Amy all the way!

She is a talented vocalist. Don't just take me at my word - go listen to one of her songs! Her sound can be loud and epic or she can sound softer and more delicate, but either way there is something powerful in her voice that makes you want to hear her sing again. She also plays multiple instruments. She is so talented in a lot of different ways.

Don't read me wrong. I'm not one of those crazy fans who is blinded by idol-worship. I haven't heard all of her songs yet. I'm not even into Rock music much. In general, I prefer Country! But I voted for Amy Lee anyway because I do know a good thing when I hear it.

How Britney Spears is ahead of Amy I don't know. One of the best voices in the music industry. She has such a wide range of styles she can nail, and a huge vocal range. Amy's voice is better than almost any female vocalist in modern day music.

Best singer ever! her voice is purely awesome! she puts all her emotions in every song she sing, most of them written by her, she is pure passion and her vocals are shown in their albums and live; plus, she sing for the music and not for just been popular and make money... and she is great as a person and dedicated to her fans!

Her voice is that of an angel! How could she be in 8th? SHE MUST BE IN THE TOP! Also, she's only written like 1 breakup song, but if she teamed up with Adele and possibly Taylor Swift (but I hate her) they could totally smash some jerks! People consider her music emo, but I love it either way. The use of the violins mixed with electric guitar is absolutely AMA-ZING! I met her once, and it was the most exciting thing EVER! (She's actually really short, and her hair is really long! ) SHE IS THE BEST EVER! I think Hayley Williams should also be on here somewhere, probably like one number below Amy.
