Lea Michele Releases 3rd Track off Debut Album "Louder"

The title track from Lea Michele’s upcoming album Louder was released with an overwhelming positive response. At the time of this writing, “Louder” was sitting at #4 in Canada and in the US on the iTunes (overall) Top Singles Chart, and I will be very surprised if doesn’t soon hit #1.

Lea Michele, known best for her role as Rachel Berry on Glee, has shown the music world that there is more to her than the covers done on the show. Her undeniably strong vocals carry a hint of broadway, which nicely enhance her otherwise ‘pop’ sound.

I was originally skeptical for the success of Lea’s debut album. Coming from a show where she plays a singer, I wasn’t sure how (or if) she could break from her character and clearly bring forth herself... but she did. Listening to the first few tracks released, I got no sense of ‘Rachel Berry’ and heard only Lea Michele.
