Amy and Paula Cole in a concert in Long Island

In February 2009, Amy Lee duetted with Paula Cole during a concert on Long Island. There is no registration of the performance. During her concert that night, Paula sang two covers with Amy Lee ("Old Man" by Neil Young, and a traditional Appalachian song, "Green Pastures" by Emmylou Harris). Paula posted a message on her MySpace about Amy:[1]

Well, come to find out she’s a great heart and a music geek like myself (!)We’ve bonded a bit in friendship and music: we found ourselves discussing and loving songs, trying ideas together.

I love the intensity of our two voices together. Really, it’s quite the energy-vitamin shot. So, I had the fortune of her presence at my last show in Long Island. We sang a couple of covers (Neil Young and a traditional Appalachian song). Loved it, loved it, loved it. Thank you, Amy, and hope there is more where that came from.

The meeting with Amy deeply affected Paula who even quoted her in a 2010 interview:[2]

As far as voices go, Ray LaMontagne blows me away. Oh and Amy Lee, from Evanescence is amazing, her voice is so real. I totally respect Kelly Clarkson, I don’t love all of her songs but she is such a strong girl and isn’t afraid to have meat on her bones. Which I love. Lady GaGa’s work ethic is brilliant, and Rihanna has some amazing songs. I’m not sure about the new one with Eminem (“Love the Way You Lie”), I mean he is known for disrespecting women so it doesn’t make complete sense, but I love that song.
