Lea Michele may have gotten her start on FOX’s megahit TV show Glee, but she’s ready to take on the music world with her debut album Louder! Showing off her powerhouse vocals, it’s clear that she gives all that she has to every single song on the record.
We got the chance to catch up with Lea, courtesy of Walmart Soundcheck, to talk about Louder, as well as what it was like to work so closely with fellow singer and songwriter Sia!

Putting together your debut album can be a nerve-wrecking process but with someone like Sia on your side, who has worked with the likes of Christina Aguilera, David Guetta, Katy Perry and Rihanna, you’re pretty much setting yourself up for success! “Sia contributed to four songs on the record – one of which we co-wrote together,” Lea explained. “I’m so thankful for all of the songs that she gave me and to get to work with her.”
Lea had nothing but kind words when asked to describe Sia, even saying it was an “honor” to work with her. “Sonically, we’re quite similar. We’re sort of vocally powerful singers who sing very emotionally and dramatically so I think it was meant to be,” she said.
