In May, we told you about Lea Michele’s Dove Hair Care commercial in which she covers, ‘My Favorite Things.’ Well, now Glee fans everywhere can find the song on the ‘The Sound of Music: 45th Anniversary Edition,’ which is due out tomorrow.
That’s right, Gleeks. No more hitting replay and refresh on your computer — you can now rock the song on your iPod. The updated soundtrack features all 23 tracks from the classic Rodgers and Hammerstein musical, plus Lea’s special rendition of one of the film’s most famous songs.
Although the commercial first hit the Web six months ago, Dove has been running a shortened version of it on TV, which kicks off right at the beginning of Lea’s number. Rachel Berry would be oh-so-proud.
We’re really not surprised by the New York native’s involvement with the anniversary soundtrack. Before her stint on Glee, the 24-year-old was a Broadway actress, starring in productions like Les Misérables, Fiddler on the Roof and Spring Awakening.
Check out Lea’s studio recording of ‘My Favorite Things’ below, and listen to the entire ‘The Sound of Music: 45th Anniversary Edition’ here. The album will be available in stores and on iTunes on November 2. source
Thanks to the awesome Maribel for the videos and review!
I just got back from the Rocky Horror Picture Show Tribute. They played the movie on a big screen and then they had a shadow cast that mimicked what the actors on the screen were doing. Then they had what they called “the cast” and they included Lea, Matt, and all the other celebrities. Lea only came out to sing Dammit Janet with Matt and There’s a Light. Nicole Sherzinger sang Toucha Toucha Touch me…which I was bummed about because I wanted to hear Lea sing that. At the end all the actors came out and I guess it was the show director who said that Lea had to leave because she had an early call in the morning. She sounded amazing though!

Big thanks to Marica for the caps and clips!
Elle magazine‘s creative director Joe Zee is celebrating 25 years of Elle with the release of his new book, “The ELLEments of Personal Style,” and he’s made “Glee’s” Lea Michele the first woman in the book.
“You see this cool, sophisticated girl, but she is sexy and modern at the same time,” Zee told “Extra.” “She knows how to play up her assets.”
Take a look back and some of Lea’s best red carpet moments — and tell us below if you agree with Joe Zee‘s pick!
