I didn't know Amy was married! That's cool.

NMPA Announces 2008 Honorees (NMPA.org)
Grammy Award Winner Amy Lee to Receive Icon Award
at Annual Meeting in New York City
WASHINGTON—The National Music Publishers’ Association (NMPA) will honor Grammy-Award winning singer/songwriter Amy Lee with its 2008 Songwriter Icon Award at the NMPA’s Annual Meeting to be held in New York City June 18. NMPA also announced today U.S. Senator Patrick Leahy (D-VT) has been selected to receive the 2008 President’s Award.
“The NMPA is in many ways a bridge between policymakers and the music publishers and songwriters we serve, so it’s a privilege to recognize an outstanding representative from each of these groups in conjunction with our annual meeting each year,” said NMPA President and CEO David Israelite. “This year we are honored that the multi-talented Amy Lee will join us in New York City not only to receive this award but to perform as well. We are also so pleased to present Senator Leahy with the President’s Award. He a friend of the industry, and a true fan of music.”
Amy Lee is the co-founder and lead singer of Evanescence. She is a singer-songwriter and a classically trained pianist. The album “Fallen” sold more than 15 million copies, spent 43 weeks on the Billboard Top 10, and has been certified Platinum 6 times. Amy Lee and Evanescence won two Grammy Awards in 2004 for Best New Artist and Best Hard Rock Performance.
The second Evanescence album, The Open Door, debuted at the top of the Billboard charts selling more than 447,000 units in its first week and reached platinum status in just over a month. The album is defined by Amy Lee’s beautiful melodies, compelling lyrics, poignant piano and stunning vocals, fused with Terry Balsamo’s urgent yet intricate guitar to form a seamless, ethereal mixture that perfectly channels the band’s hard rock and classical sensibilities. The album’s musical elements include a classically-infused choir and strings on several tracks, giving further color to songs of introspection, longing, doubt, self-respect and, ultimately, empowerment. “Sweet Sacrifice,” a post-relationship catharsis and the third single from The Open Door was nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance at the 2007 Grammy Awards.
Amy Lee truly speaks to an international audience. In support of The Open Door, Amy and Evanescence performed for audiences in more than 25 countries, including the US, Canada, France, UK, Spain, Germany, Greece, Turkey, Russia, Israel, Argentina, Chile, Brazil, South Africa, Japan, Australia and New Zealand. The Open Door is about to reach sales of 2 million copies in the U.S. and more than 4 million copies worldwide.
