Amy Lee will be awarded the 'Luella Bennack Award'. The lead singer of Evanescence will take the award on May 30th 2012 at the 11th 'Women Who Care' reception in Manhattan. The reception is annually hosted by one of the largest charities in the U.S. in honor of women who have worked for community projects and charities.
The committee chose Amy, because she's pointing out the problems of people with disabilities in relation to education and personal dignity as an international spokeswoman for the 'Out Of The Shadows' organization. Moreover, the jury acknowledged the positive impact that Amy's music and lyrics carries on countless women worldwide.
Note: Evanescence's new video for the song "My Heart Is Broken" from their new self-titled album celebrates it's premiere at myvideo.de on January 24th.
Anyone who wants to read a feature from the video shoot, has to get the new issue of Sonic Seducer available in stores tomorrow (available now in our online shop)!

LITTLE ROCK — Having chosen the name Evanescence, it’s a bit of a surprise that the band is still around. After all, a quick check of an old paperback copy of Webster’s New World Dictionary reveals the word “evanescent” means “tending to fade from sight; fleeting; ephemeral.”
Yet the band, which came together in Little Rock in 1995, is still together, thanks to its leader, Amy Lee. It will perform Saturday night at North Little Rock’s Verizon Arena.
Last month, the group performed at the 18th annual Nobel Peace Prize concert in Oslo, Norway, in a lineup that also included David Gray, Jill Scott, Sugarland and Matthew Morrison.
Our journey started at 3:30 when we arrived at House of Blues, despite the bad weather and that the show was scheduled to start at 8 PM with the opening bands, fans were already getting on line to wait for the gates to open. We had our 2 contestant winners with us and 101.1WJRR -The Rock Station, was there with lots of contestants that won a chance to be face to face with Evanescence.
*Note: the interviewer mentions Croatia @ 3:36
Thank you, Sean (the interviewer) and Hot Spot Orlando!
Clip doesn't premiere until Monday, but you can get an exclusive behind-the-scenes look right now!
Last month, Evanescence invited MTV News to the set of their "My Heart Is Broken" video, where frontwoman Amy Lee told us about the dreamlike inspiration behind the clip (the 1988 British horror film "Paperhouse") and the nightmarish reasons she wrote the song in the first place: namely, the ongoing issue of sex trafficking.
"A lot of times when I write, I just sort of make up words, and something will stick, and I'll be like, 'Oh, that's from my subconscious. That's what I need to write the song about,' " she explained. "And that's sort of what happened [with the song]. I was like, 'I think I'm writing about this thing; it's on my heart,' just imagining being in such a trapped place and how that might feel, so the song was actually inspired by that idea."
So obviously, the video means an awful lot to Lee and her bandmates — which is why they chose to work with noted director and photographer Dean Karr, who filled the video with imagery that recalls both dreams andnightmares. And though the full "My Heart Is Broken" video doesn't premiere until Monday, Evanescence is giving fans a behind-the-scenes look at the clip's creation, with a making-of clip they sent exclusively to MTV News.
As you'll see — and hear — making "My Heart Is Broken" was a labor of love, for both the band and their director, one filled with fiber optics, elaborate costumes and, of course, striking, surreal imagery. But why don't you just have a look for yourself: Above, direct from Evanescence to you, is an exclusive look at the making of "My Heart Is Broken."
