Outlier Project Essay

I believe Amy Lynn Lee, the lead singer and co-founder of Evanescence, is an outlier. Amy has become a huge idol to millions of people through her lyrics and the clash of her angelic voice with the thrashing metal sound of the band. She is an outlier because of the bands unique sound and her talent of writing beautiful lyrics. Amy Lee’s music has a sort of power to draw you in. You can feel the emotion in her songs with her lyrics combined with her hauntingly beautiful voice. She sings from her heart which is something my choir director tells the choir to do all the time.

Lee accomplished many things with the band Evanescence, and will continue to live up to her legacy
I feel that Amy Lee doesn’t necessarily feel entitled to success. While she has been very successful, she isn’t boastful. In every article I’ve read about her and the band, evanescence, she talks about the music rather than her success. You can hear it in her songs, and the way she sings. Her lyrics are from her heart and the lyrics alone are enough to prove that, but it’s also the passion with which...
