She may have starred in numerous musical numbers as Glee’s beloved Rachel Berry over the last five years… But Lea Michele is now getting ready to star in her own special clip.
The 27-year-old part-Spanish American singer and one of the stars of Fox’s hot dramedy is filming her first-ever music video as a solo artist. And, she’s shared behind-the-scenes images from her shoot.
“So excited shooting my very first music video today for the first album single,” she tweeted.
Michele 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 the latest Glee star to branch out on their own musically. Naya Rivera released her first single, “Sorry,” in September. And Matthew Morrison has released two albums since Glee launched and will release a special holiday EP, A Classic Christmas, this week.
