Lea spends the first half of the emotional video in the shadows before emerging into the sunlight as she sings about her vow to “start living today.” The video and lyrics seem to perfectly reflect how Lea must be feeling after the tragic loss of Cory.
By the end of the clip, Lea is smiling brilliantly amid a sea of colorful, electrifying lights, all ready for her “new beginning.” She certainly has come a long way since Cory’s death, and the video is totally uplifting an inspiring!
Lea Michele: ‘Cannonball’ Helped ‘Lift Me Up’
“[It’s] more than just a song to me. It completely helped to lift me up at a time where I needed it. It’s very empowering. I’ve used this song as a rock,” she told the mag. “Music can really help you in times of need, and that’s what this song did for me and I hope that’s what it does for others as well.”
She also added that Cory had heard the whole Louder album, except “Cannonball” and a song she wrote for him, “If You Say So.”
“I started working on [my album], I believe, during September of last year. I finished it in June. It was supposed to come out this summer but it got postponed, but I’m really happy because Cory got to hear all but two songs on the record and he had notes all the time when I would come home and play him a song,” she told Ellen DeGeneres on Dec. 12. “We would sit in the car and listen to it, because it had the best sound system. Then after everything happened I met with Sia, who is incredible, and she said, ‘Do you want to write anything about this?’ And I think one of the hardest things is the feeling like you’re going to forget everything, so I felt it was important to just take a moment to see what we could come up with. We came up with a beautiful song called ‘If You Say So’ that I wrote about Cory.”
It’s sweet that she came up with a way to remember him through a beautiful song and video. What do you think, HollywoodLifers? Do you like Lea’s new video?
