At the young age of 14, Ben Moody co-founded the highly successful band, Evanescence, with lead singer Amy Lee.  They signed with Wind-up Records and put out their first album, Fallen, on March 4, 2003.  Evanescence’s debut single “Bring Me To Life” was a worldwide hit, and quickly put them on the map.  They followed it up with “My Immortal” which reached number 1 on multiple platforms.  Both songs ended up on the Daredevil soundtrack as well. In 2004, they went to the 46th Grammy Awards with 4 nominations and 2 wins.  Fallen went on to spend 43 weeks on the Billboard Top 10, went 7x platinum in the United States, and sold over 15 million copies worldwide. The information here is that it was one of eight albums in the history of the Billboard Top 50 to spend at least a year on the chart.
