Lea Michele Comes In Like A… Cannonball!

December 15, 2013


Ask any fan of the hit television show Glee to describe Lea Michele’s year in one word and their answer will probably be “eventful”. With the untimely passing of her Glee costar and boyfriend Cory Monteith back in July, Lea Michele has shown the world just how much strength she possesses. The passing of Michele’s beloved took her away from the spotlight for a few weeks, but she made her return to television screens for the first time since Cory’s death on the 2013 Teen Choice Awards to accept the surfboard for TV Actress Comedy and to dedicate the award to her late boyfriend. Her emotional acceptance speech is below.


On a much more positive note, Ms. Michele has been hard at work as of late. The Glee actress and Broadway star has released the first single from her upcoming album Louder entitled “Cannonball”. Now, personally, I have never considered myself a Gleek, but there is no denying that Lea’s voice in this song is absolutely amazing. I’m the type of person that always needs to take a few listens to a song before I can like it, but that’s not the case for “Cannonball”. Evidently, this is a song of empowerment and second chances, and you’ll feel the emotion when you listen.

And now I will start living today. Today, today, I close the door. I got this new beginning and I will fly. I’ll fly like a cannonball.”

Lea Michele returned for her first television interview since Cory’s passing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this past week and performed “Cannonball” for the first time ever. The vocals in this song are insane! She makes sure that people don’t look at her as Rachel Berry in this song. This is Lea Michele’s album, and she is making sure people know it. The performance is posted below.


Michele is a woman who, despite the untimely death of the love of her life, is still the same person we have all come to love. She is still strong, beautiful, funny, and still an amazing singer.  Lea’s first studio album Louder is available for preorder on iTunes and Amazon NOW, and you can download “Cannonball”, as well! Lea Michele will be appearing on the X Factor USA’s finale to perform “Cannonball”, so make sure you tune in!
