You know I’ve performed, you know the glee tour, we did you know world tours, we did Staples Center. I sang at the superbowl, and this is different when it’s your music. And for me I find that this is a very personal album for me and I didn’t record any songs that weren’t personal to me, that didn’t mean something to me.
“Louder really encompasses my experiences over this past year and my journey as an artist up to this point. There’s a lot of emotion but it’s also very encouraging and hopeful — it’s about pushing forward and living your life in a way that’s louder, stronger and bolder. I’m so excited to share this new side of me with my fans.”
TODAY IN THEATRE HISTORY: In 2006, Duncan Sheik and Steven Sater’s musical Spring Awakening, based on the 1891 troubled teen drama by Frank Wedekind, opens on Broadway at the Eugene O’Neill Theatre. Lea Michele and Jonathan Groff star as teens Wendla and Melchior, who are drawn to each other in a world where parents, ministers and teachers create an atmosphere of shame, silence and ignorance. The production will go on to win eight Tony Awards, including ones for John Gallagher, Jr.’s performance as Moritz, Best Original Score and Best Musical.
