“ Oh my God. I am a huge Glee fan, too. I am so obsessed with Lea Michele [who plays Rachel]. She is my favorite—Spring Awakening, hello! When she did “Jar of Hearts” I remember it was actually the day my first album came out. We did not plan that. I don’t even know what you call that. It was the best luck ever. She sang the song so strongly. It was so rad, there is just no other way to put it. It was so overwhelmingly cool.
I also didn’t believe anyone until I saw it because that is too awesome, like no way! Then when I saw it I knew it was real. I told Lea I loved it; then she ended up cutting one of my songs recently on her album. That whole thing keeps blowing my mind. I wrote “Empty Handed” on her album Louder. ”
