Now, Glee star Lea Michele says it was Nicks who helped her heal following the death of her co-star and real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith, who died of a drug overdose this past summer.


"I had so many amazing people reach out to me, there for me through all of this.  And I had the pleasure of having Miss Stevie Nicks call me when Cory passed away and she was so wonderful," Lea tells MTV.   "She sent me the most beautiful letter, as well a necklace that was hers and a beautiful book of pictures."

According to Michele, Nicks is "so insightful, so incredible," and explains that in the letter, the legendary singer told her that she would find the strength to get through the tragedy through music.

"And at the time, it was very early in everything and it was sort of hard to grasp on to the fact that anything could help," Michele adds.  "But she was right.  [Music] is and it has and it will continue to be my source of strength in all of this."
