Amy Lee, better known by her stage name Ailee, is a Korean-American singer. She was born in Denver. She grew up in New Jersey. She released her first single, "Heaven", on February 8, 2012.

On September 13, 2011, Ailee along with Wheesung held a performance on the MBC's Chuseok special episode of "Singer and Trainee". Ailee's stage presence was immediately felt by the audience, who was amazed that she was like a professional singer, even though she had not yet officially debuted. Following her solo performance of "Halo" by Beyoncé, singer BMK expressed, "Wherever she goes, she has the potential to be a big star. She definitely has the voice." After the judges had graded everyone, Ailee won first place.

Since then, she has debuted as a K-pop star, and has achieved massive success.
