Billboard posted the article on July 15, 2003 in the Daily Music News section of their web site. You can read it at Billboard.com. Thanks to Peter Zimmerman and Peter Starski for telling me about it.

Tori Amos has selected a winner in her Taxivision video contest , where fans submitted clips for her single "Taxi Ride." Susan Hebert's winning entry cuts between various passengers in the back seat of a cab, giving the viewer glimpses into their lives at that moment. Images range from a trio of laughing women to a pair of grouchy businessmen, to a distraught woman who eventually rips apart the roses she's carrying and storms out of the cab.
"In the end I felt that on every level this one delivered," Amos says in a statement announcing the winner and two runners up. "I've had the people in my life giving me their input on which video should win, people who make videos for a living, people who represent all sides of the spectrum... As for the top three, I think all of them affected everyone on my side of things in different ways." Hebert's video can be seen on Amos' official Web site for the next month.
As previously reported , Amos will kick off the Lottapianos tour July 26 in Redmond, Wash., with Ben Folds opening. She's touring in support of her Epic debut, "Scarlet's Walk," which in November debuted at No. 7 on The Billboard 200.
