Exactly a year ago, I met Yellowcard. Today, I met Evanescence‘s frontwoman Amy Lee.
I thought the entire band would be there for the autograph signing, but then again, Amy Lee is Amy Lee!
I wish they just mounted the event at The Atrium instead of the Event Center for better lighting. Demanding? XD Anyway, here are my best snaps:
Since the event was strictly an autograph signing session, there was no opportunity for a photo with Amy. But before I went up onstage, I found the chance to take a better photo. However, I forgot to change my settings. When will I ever learn?
Since I expected a black marker, I didn’t think of having the CD signed. Then poof—Amy was using a white marker! Anyway, I had my old Fallen CD signed instead of the album I purchased. I chose to have that signed because it’s cute to say that I kept that CD for years and finally, THE Amy Lee held and signed it in front of me.
By the way, I got to shake her hand. And since the fangirl in me cannot find the right words to tell how much I love her music, I just muttered some standard stuff you say to foreign acts:
MM: Nice to finally meet you, Amy! [TAKE NOTE of the word “finally!” XD]
Amy: *I forgot what she said because I was too busy staring into her eyes*
MM: I hope you’re having fun in the Philippines [More fun in the Philippines, yo!]
Amy: Thank you so much. See you tonight.
I’m just sorry I couldn’t make it tonight, Amy.
