lea michele birthday getty Lea Michele is 25! Happy birthday, here are our favorite performances

“Glee” star Lea Michele turns 25 years old Monday (Aug. 29) and in honor of her birthday, we’d like to take a look back at our favorite Lea performances from the show. Say what you will about the character of Rachel Berry, but Lea can straight-up sing.

While her group numbers are always fun, we really love her soaring voice on her diva solo numbers and none show it off better than “Defying Gravity,” “What I Did for Love” and “Don’t Rain on My Parade.”

So happy birthday, Lea Michele! What are your favorite Lea Michele numbers, “Glee” fans?
“Glee” returns Tuesday, Sept. 20 at 8 p.m. ET on FOX.
