ABOUT LEA MICHELE
Since making her Broadway debut at just eight years old in Les Misérables, Lea Michele has continued to be a powerhouse on both stage and screen as well as a chart-topping solo artist and New York Times bestselling author. Following her critically acclaimed performance as "Wendla" in the Tony Award-winning Broadway production of Spring Awakening, she made her television debut as perfectionist firecracker "Rachel Berry" on Ryan Murphy's critically acclaimed, award-winning musical series Glee. The breakout role earned the actress both a Teen's Choice Award and People's Choice Award, as well as Emmy and Golden Globe nominations. Lea's love for music has always been a focus point in her career, signing to Columbia Records and making her solo album debut with 2014's Louder, which notched a Top 5 position on the Billboard 200 chart upon its release. Lea added best-selling author to her resume that same year, releasing her first book entitled "Brunette Ambition," which quickly became a New York Times Best Seller. She released her second book, "You First," the following year. In 2017, she released her sophomore album Places and hit the road for a series of sold-out North American tour dates as well as a co-headlining slot on the LM/DC Tour alongside fellow Glee alum Darren Criss.
