Sons of Serendip Cover Evanescence Hit ‘Bring Me to Life’ on ‘America’s Got Talent’
The Sons of Serendip covered Evanescence’s hit ‘Bring Me to Life’ on part one of 'America’s Got Talent' finale last night (Sept. 16). The classically trained quartet brought the song to life on piano, cello, harp and beautiful vocals with the help of a backing orchestra and choir for the performance.
The group, who has been making waves on 'America’s Got Talent' all season, formed while the members were pursuing graduate degrees at Boston University. The quartet --comprised of Micah Christian, Cardaro Rodriguez, Kendall Ramseur and Mason Morton --are in the running for the top prize of one million dollars on the reality show’s finale tonight.
‘Bring Me to Life’ was the breakthrough hit for Evanescence back in 2003. It was the first single off their debut album ‘Fallen,’ which has sold a staggering 17 million copies. The song, which features Paul McCoy of 12 Stones, went on to win the Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance beating out the likes of Godsmack, Audioslave and Queens of the Stone Age for the honor.
Evanescence are currently on a break while Amy Lee is enjoying life as a new mother. She recently showed a different side of herself on ‘Aftermath,’ the soundtrack to the film ‘War Story.’ The effort features the dance-driven song ‘Push the Button.’
Meanwhile, Sons of Serendip could win it all on the finale of 'America’s Got Talent' tonight. See for yourself when the show airs tonight (Sept. 17) on NBC at 8 PM ET.
