Singer, Actress, Hopeless Dreamer

    Goodbye 2013

    2013 has been a year full of massive highs and epic lows but despite it all, I’ve come out of it stronger. I met some of the most incredible people this year, a lot of whom I met in LA.

    LA was one of the most surreal experiences I’ve ever had. I got to sing at the Grammy’s pre-show party, on the rooftop of the iconic Beverly Hilton in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles. It was magical and the whole trip was a dream come true thanks to the amazing people I met and friends I made. Dominic, Curt, Annie, Nicole, Chase, Matt, Travis, Terry, Shawna….everyone made my holiday unforgettable. It was a pleasure spending time with you guys and getting to know you. You each inspire me so much to live my dreams.

    I started a new non profit organisation with my best friend, and we put on a concert in one of London’s most prestigious venues. We met some incredibly talented people who now are very dear friends. With that company, we have also started writing our musical, Intesa, which is a dream come true as well. We’ll work more on this is 2014, but I’m so proud of this show and the message it’s going to send to people. Then the Glee convention was a big high for me. I finally got to perform to my mentor and Telly Leung (broadway star) told me I should be on Broadway right now, which was just mind blowing. Had incredible feedback from some big inspirations of mine at G3 so that was amazing!

    Tanja and I wrote, produced and starred in our own web series which we’d wanted to do for a while. It was a unforgettable feeling, when people were watching our show and saying how much they enjoyed our writing. I’m so proud of us!

    I filmed a music video for my first original song, which was so much fun! To hear people singing to my song was just crazy! I got to take my beautiful niece to France and have a lovely holiday with her and my mum and brother. I released a song on itunes, that appeared in a successful web series starring Curt Mega, Eric Carroll, Matt Zimmerman, Chase Edmonsdon and Annie Sewell. I discovered my love of Batman, Froyo and ‘In and Out’ burgers (thanks Chase and Matt).

    Other memorable moments: I had the best Christmas in a long time. My Superhouse girls came to Mama and Papa Cox’s house and we had a Swedish Christmas, and it was perfect! Went to the Harry Potter studios with my parents and brother and it was one of the most magical days this year! Going to Wales with Tanja and Sam and Oscar. Seeing Spamalot dressed as knights. Seeing Book of Mormon on the opening night in London. Yes there have been very low points this year, but I think the high points have out weighed them massively. I’m truly very blessed and I love every single one of you who has made 2013 so memorable. Thank you.

    Said by an LA Talent scout to me:

    "So a Tony award winning Broadway star has told you (Idina Menzel) that you have an incredible voice, another broadway star has said you are very talented (Telly Leung), the cast of the biggest singing show on TV have told you (Curt Mega, Riker Lynch, Dominic Barnes, Eddy Martin), you were chosen to sing at the Grammy’s and I have told you you’re hugely talented. How many more people do you need to hear it from to start believing it?"


    Thing is, I listen to the haters rather than the people who KNOW what they’re talking about.

    A BIG HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little Mini Warbler - Abigail who’s 4 today!

    She has a birthday tweet from Curt to wake up to, so she’s gonna be one happy little girl tomorrow! (Curt is her imaginary friend too, if she’s off playing somewhere you’ll hear ‘Oh Curt, Darren is coming for tea so you can go and make the cakes ok?’ She’s adorable, and she lights up my life. So blessed to have such a beautiful, healthy, bubbly little niece. And her love for Glee and the Warblers is not solely my doing, honest LOL

    And now she’s 5!! How the heck has time gone so fast. My little warbler is growing up too quickly! She told me today she’d ‘better get a happy birthday from Curt or Dom’ haha!!

    Surround yourself with positive people….

    This past weekend, more than ever, I have been reminded that all you need in life is to surround yourself with positivity and good friends and the rest will come.

    It’s been a tough weekend for Glee fans, with the passing of one of our stars (Cory Monteith who played Finn Hudson on the show). Finding out about this tragedy, whilst at a Glee convention was both a blessing and a curse. The bad side is that I felt there wasnt time to grieve on our own and really sink in what had happened. On the other hand, being with 200 people who all felt the same grief and had a chance to comfort each other without judgement was a special feeling. I have never witnessed such a showing of solidarity in my life and I think this weekend especially sums up just what being part of a fandom really means. Any fandom. Sure they fight, they ship but it boils down to a lot of people having the same interest, and when something happens, you have someone like minded to share the experience with. No judgement, just support and solidarity. When Telly Leung sat everyone down in a circle and spoke about Cory’s life, it was exactly what we needed. We laughed, we cried and just having that chat really helped put things into perspective.

    Now, hats off to the Warbler boys who were present at the convention. Even though they had to deal with the tragic news whilst they were in a foreign country, they really held their own. I’ve never seen so much professionalism and integrity as those boys displayed. They were obviously devastated at losing a colleague and friend, but they battled through that to be there for their fans and help them with the loss too. 

    I am just blown away by their dedication to their fans. They are a true inspiration to young actors all over the world. If I can be half as humble, professional and thoughtful as they are, then I will be proud.

    Thank you boys x

    Michelle Cox - G3 talent contest



    Here is the video of my performance from the glee convention talent contest. I changed the lyrics to a Spamalot song, so it was aimed towards the Warblers and their lack of screen time. We filmed the boys reactions and here’s the result.

    Warbler’s on the judging panel: Curt Mega, Dominic Barnes, Riker Lynch, Telly Leung and Eddy Martin.

    Love these crazy boys :) Curt likes our ship name a little too much I think haha #MegaCox Seriously so much respect for these guys even tho they lost a colleague and friend, they still pulled it out of the bag for the fans after our little vigil to Cory. We celebrated his life, rather than mourn the loss. Together it was beautiful.

    Loving something “too” much…

    curtmega:

    People will always belittle you or make fun of you for loving something “too” much or being super passionate about something… 
    but to that I say this: think about who’s really missing out.

    Love what you love and love it loudly. Don’t let people make you feel silly for being passionate. They are the ones who are missing out.

    new Vlog vid: “Investing in… yourself”. Check it out :)

    This is the reason he is my mentor. I’ve never known such a rounded, intelligent, motivated individual. He isn’t afraid to tell it like it is in the industry. Curt makes me want to be the best I can be and chase the things I want.

    Never stop believing. I’m proud to call this guy my friend.

    Finally got around to recording my own arrangement of the Kelly Clarkson song 'Dark Side'. I did a little collaboration with my friend Starkid Corner. It’s VERY different from the original and its the first time I’ve done a special arrangement for a cover so I’m anxious to see what you think?
