And none more so than Michele—ever the professional, she recites Rachel Berry's scripted dialogue, but the tears seem real.
Her rendition of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love" resonates with genuine heartbreak.
‘I love it so much, and I really feel it represents who I am and everything that I’ve been through in my life. ‘At the end of the day, the song is pretty specific, and people are gonna make of it what they want, but I wanted to make a song about loss that wasn’t necessarily sad.’ The singer also said that she would open up about the song and its story more at her concert.
Asked if she had a drink while recording it the singer said: ‘No wine during the recording of Places, I’ll tell you that.
star Lea Michele was dating Monteith when he passed away, and on Monday she posted a photo of the actor driving on Twitter.
"Today we remember the laughter and joy you brought into our lives every day," she wrote.
Following the split Lea has been focusing on her career, and has been in the studio recording new music.
The 29-year-old also unveiled two new tattoos – one of which honours her late boyfriend Cory Monteith, who would have turned 34 on Wednesday.
Speaking to Pride Source about the song Michele said: ‘It’s sort of a sensitive subject for me that’s hard to talk about, and I didn’t want anything on the record that I couldn’t talk about. ‘I wanted to show this beautiful moment and there’s a little bit more of a deeper story that goes with it that I talk about in my concert.’ Not only was the record an emotionally packed one but it was vocally challenging too.
Lea proved that Cory would always hold a special place in her heart by getting an inking of the number five – the American football team his character Finn played for in .
During the same session at Prospect Tattoos in New York, Lea unveiled another tattoo, this time in honour of her grandmother.
It was too vocally challenging, so none in the recording studio!
’ Here’s a sneak peak of what did go on behind the scenes of the video for Places though: She and Cory met on the set of Glee in 2009 but it wasn’t until 2012 that they began dating.
