Over 20,000 fans tuned into the popular recording artist’s event, as Amos spun out classics from her past albums as well as songs from her new album, Midwinter Graces for well over an hour. After the riveting concert, where at various points Amos played simultaneously on two pianos, she also took the time to answer fan’s questions live from the Facebook chat.
The concert and Q&A was in part to promote new album, Midwinter Graces, which was released on November 10th. The album marks her first seasonal collection, which is not all too surprising as Amos grew up playing holiday carols at Sunday services and Christmas Day celebrations in church.
If you missed the Q&A, check out the video below.
Among the thousands of fans, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton tweeted the event:
