From the anthem hit “Don’t Stop Believin’” to the iconic rendition of “Vogue” to the pop phenomenon “Teenage Dream,” Glee has sold more than 36 million songs. Now Glee has reached another impressive milestone: 300 musical performances. The 300th performance, a momentous mash-up of “Rumor Has It - Someone Like You,” will debut in the upcoming all-new episode of Glee airing Tuesday, Nov. 15 (8:00-9:01 PM ET/PT) on FOX.
Glee music continues to shatter records with over 36 million Glee songs digitally downloaded and over 11 million albums sold worldwide. Glee albums have garnered two Platinum albums (sales in excess of 1 million units) and five Gold albums (sales in excess of 500,000 units). Also, more than 50 percent of the songs have been Billboard Hot 100 chart entries.
And Glee is giving back. In a partnership with the National Association For Music Education, the series will award 73 deserving public school arts programs with one million dollars in grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000. Already, 407 public schools have submitted videos for grant consideration, and more than one million votes have been cast. Fans can go to www.gleegiveanote.com or www.gleegiveanote.org to vote and to see these moving and heartfelt entries. Voting is open through November 7. The winning schools will be announced in December.
