While Lea Michele has been coping with the sudden death of boyfriend and Glee co-star, Cory Monteith, 31, the talented actress is finding comfort in what she loves most — singing.
Last night, the actress shared on Twitter that she picked a “beautiful & perfect song" to kick off the fifth season.

Lea’s other costars, such as Chris Colfer, have gotten back to work as well following Cory's tragic passing. When asked what he thinks the atmosphere will be like on set, Chris said, “I’m assuming things will be very different, and I’m sure they’ll be difficult at first. But…We’ll see. I think I’m positive.”
