Remember Evanescence? You could never tell if they were a Christian rock group or a gothic metal band. “Bring Me To Life” could either be about accepting our mortality or some warped retelling of Sleeping Beauty.
Their song My Immortal also became the namesake for a very disturbed Harry Potter meme. Well, their front-woman is making a comeback and she’s releasing a new album, but for children!
The album titled “Dream Too Much” will have 12 songs, which will even include a cover of the Beatles “Hello Goodbye.” The songs will also feature guest vocals from some of Lee’s loved ones, including her two year-old son, Jack.
“This album is very personal to me. My husband and I had our first baby in 2014, and he has been the center of the inspiration for this children’s album,” said Lee, in a released statement.
“Every song on this album has a story—whether it’s an original for our son based on his favorite things, or a song my dad used to sing to me when I was a little girl. I can’t begin to tell you how fulfilling this project has been and how proud I am to unveil it to listeners on Prime Music.”

While this would be her first commercial foray into children’s media, some of our younger readers might remember she once made a guest appearance on Cartoon Network where she sang about the cartoons they were airing. Admittedly, she got that gig out of a bit of nepotism (her brother Robby was one of those kids the network used to hire to be in one of their eye-catches.)
And here’s a fun fact: they were originally promoted as a Christian rock group, but the band took issue with this.
