After six seasons, tonight Glee is taking its final bow. To commemorate the occasion, I have prepared a playlist of my favorite musical moments from the person that played my favorite gold star singer Rachel Berry, Ms. Lea Michele.
Lea has a voice unlike any I had ever heard prior to Glee. I will never forget the chills I felt during the show’s live tour, as I listened to her sing “Don’t Rain on My Parade” and what was probably my favorite duet from the entire series, “Happy Days Are Here Again” / “Get Happy” with Chris Colfer. I very much look forward to what the future has in store for Lea Michele. (Please tour!)
Like her character Rachel said, “Being part of something special makes you special, right?” I have watched this show from the beginning, through all the laughs, the tears, the new characters and the random song selections. After the passing of the very much beloved Cory Monteith, I felt like the show lost its way without Finn during season five. I am glad that Glee found its footing once again during the final season and is going out with its head held high. Cheers to Glee!
