Amy Lee from Evanescence and Lzzy Hale from Halestorm join forces to cover popular Linkin Park hit – Music Mayhem Magazine
Amy Lee of Evanescence and Lzzy Hale of Halestorm gave an impressive cover of a popular rock hit at a recent concert.
The two rockstar singers have joined forces for an epic cover of Linkin Park’s “Heavy”, a track that features Kiiara, and is the first single from their seventh studio album, One more light. The performance took place at the Veterans Memorial Colosseum in Portland, Ore. On Friday, November 5.
“If you all help me welcome, please, a dear friend on stage, Lzzy Hale,” Lee explained before welcoming Hale on stage.
Kicking off their performance as Lee took a seat in the center of a grand piano and Hale stood beside him, their soaring rock vocals really shone as they sang the lyrics to the Linkin Park song.
Lee and Hale powered their tribute to the iconic rock band led by the late Chester Bennington and Mike Shinoda.
Watch their epic performance below.
Fans praised their cover of the song in the comments of the YouTube video, which was shot by a fan in the front row.
“Chester would be proud of it, ”said one fan. “Rip Chester, Make Chester proud ”
While another fan pleaded, “I hope they record this as a studio version.”
Co-written by Linkin Park members Brad Delson, Shinoda and the late Bennington, alongside Julia Michael and Justin Tranter. “Heavy” marked the last single to be released during Bennington’s lifetime.
The Portland concert kicked off their headlining hike, which runs through December 18 in Worcester, Massachusetts. Throughout the tour, Evanescence and Halestorm will be joined by PLUSH and Lilith Czar.
