Music soothes the soul, and it looks like it certainly that's been the case for Lea Michele. The big voiced songstress has just debuted her highly anticipated new music video, "Canonball," a tribute to her late boyfriend Cory Monteith.
The Glee star belts and takes command of the moody power ballad in the smoldering new video. The video, which is on her upcoming album Louder, begins with the 27-year-old solemnly singing in a dark and decaying building. Eventually the song takes a uplifting turn as Lea steps out into the light in a white ensemble.
Clearly the song bares a great deal of significance to the actress, who has had to deal with aftermath of her Glee costar and boyfriend's overdose from a mixture of heroin and alcohol on July 13, 2013.
Prior to the video's release, the Broadway star said the song, co-written by Sia and Benny Blanco, is what helped her through the devastating loss of her 31-year-old beau's death.
"The minute I heard the song, I had a physical reaction to it. For me, it's been my strength. I listen to it every day. I know it was brought into my life for a reason. It's really been so helpful for me and I hope it's the same for other people as it's been for me."
We're glad that Lea has turned her despair into strength and hope others get something from this powerful song.
"Cannonball," which was released last month is the first single off of Louder, drops on March 4.
