The Hollywood Music and Media Awards took place Thursday night (Nov 16), honoring music in all visual media including film, TV, video games and more. The awards are selected by an advisory board consisting of journalists, music-media industry professionals and music executives representing the Television Academy, Society of Composers and Lyricists, the APMAS Music Branch and NARAS.
Lee's award stems from the independent film Voice From The Stone, a haunting thriller set in 1950s Tuscany that tells the story of Verna (Game of Thrones' Emilia Clarke), a determined young nurse hired to help a mute boy, who she realizes has fallen under the spell of a powerful and otherworldly persona trapped in the stone walls of the isolated castle he lives in.
“I'm so honored and so proud!” says Amy Lee. “The experience of making this song was so special; it was surreal being let into the creative process of a film I loved so much.”
Co-writer Michael Wandmacher adds, “As an artist, I look for opportunities that are musically challenging and push creative boundaries in pursuit of something wonderful, “Speak To Me” is the result of such an experience. Working with Amy on this song was a privilege and career highlight. I'm thrilled that people are enjoying it.”
You can listen to the hauntingly beautiful track, below.
