Lea Michele Releases Cory Monteith Tribute SongBy: Kimberly Ripley - February 12, 2014
Lea Michele has released her tribute song to her late love and Glee costar Cory Monteith. You’re Mine is wrought with emotion in the midst of Lea’s power house vocals and she pours her heart into the feelings she and Monteith shared. This will no doubt be the best selling track on her album Louder.
In the touching track, Michele sings: “You’re mine, for life/ And I’ll be by your side/ We are entwined/ You’re mine, for life/ Hold me until we go, oh yes, and you will love/ I’m yours, you’re mine/ I’m yours, you’re mine.”
Back in December Lea Michele said in an interview with Elle magazine that she had dedicated the song to Cory Monteith. He died back in July of an accidental drug overdose. He was just 31 years old. The two had been linked since their first Glee days and had dated for a couple of years.
“The album was done, and the label said, ‘Do you want to add anything?’ I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,'” Michele told the magazine of adding the track. “It makes me so happy, this song. It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think if him, I play this.”
