Evanescence singer Amy Lee has become the latest musician to play a song using a Hello Kitty instrument.

Drummer Mike Portnoy got behind a kids’ kit last year to perform a medley featuring Slayer, Rush and Kiss classics, with Ozzy Osbourne and Black Label Society guitarist Zakk Wylde joining in the fun in March when he cranked out Black Sabbath’s N.I.B on a Hello Kitty-branded guitar.

Now it’s Lee’s turn – and she’s decided to cover Death Cab For Cutie’s I Will Follow You Into The Dark on a Hello Kitty keyboard. Watch it below.

Evanescence will release a new vinyl box set on December 9 titled The Ultimate Collection. It features all of the band’s studio records along with their previously unreleased demo album Origin. It’s available for pre-order.

Evanescence are currently on tour across the US.
