As you might have seen in previous posts, we've really been digging Amy Lee's YouTube covers.

She's been treating fans to a musical side of her that we've rarely seen before. She's taken that a little further this time with an acoustic cover of Led Zeppelin's "Going To California". It's a song she listened to growing up and it still plays a big part in her life today. Posting on her Facebook, she wrote this about the choice of song.

This song is a classic that I've loved for as long as I can remember. It puts me at peace. My friend and manager, Jordan, had recorded the instrumentation for fun and when I heard it a few months ago I knew instantly that I had to sing on it. Listening to mommy sing usually helps get Jack into that elusive sleepy place, and this song has been a regular rotation nap-time hit around our house this fall. As I was preparing for the November Evanescence shows, I just really wanted a moment like this in our set. So I showed this version to Troy, who made it a personal challenge to master a finger-picking based song, which was outside his comfort zone (not that you could tell- he sounded amazing!). We had so much fun playing it live! It's a pleasure to sing a song publicly that is such a part of who I am offstage- my roots, the style of music that we always played around my house when I was growing up, and still at every big family gathering, singing and playing music with my dad. 
Hope you enjoy it!
