Gleeks: Hear Lea Michele’s Song For Cory Monteith

I’m not a sappy girl. I don’t cry at movies. And while I do like the occasional issue of People, I’m not what you’d call celebrity-obsessed. I don’t get torn up over celebrity deaths.

Now when I see Rachel mention Finn (or watch old episodes, thanks to Delta and my frequent flights), I imagine Lea Michele mourning Cory Monteith. Real people, not a storyline. Her song, “You’re Mine,” dedicated to Monteith has been released, and you can listen to it here:

Louder, Michele’s debut solo album, which includes “You’re Mine,” will be released February 28, 2014, by Columbia Records.
