Get a First Look at Lea Michele's New Music Video
by Kate Stanhope
Rachel Berry has been hogging the spotlight for five years, which means it’s past time for the woman behind her, Lea Michele, to get her time to shine.
And that is just what she’s doing! Over the weekend, the Glee star shared a few behind-the-scenes pictures from her first-ever music video shoot. “SO EXCITED SHOOTING MY VERY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO TODAY FOR THE FIRST ALBUM SINGLE,” she tweeted.
Michele, 27, has been working on her debut studio album, which is due out sometime next year. Just one day before her music video shoot, Michele shared some more behind-the-scenes photos from rehearsals for her first live performance of her single. The songs on the upcoming album will include a song called “You’re Mine,” which Michele said was a tribute to her late boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, who died in July at the age of 31. “It makes me so happy, this song,” she told E! Online. “It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think if him, I play this.”
Michele is just one of several Glee stars to branch out on their own musically. Naya Rivera released her first single, “Sorry,” in September. Matthew Morrison has released two albums since Glee launched and will release a special holiday EP, A Classic Christmas, on Tuesday.
