The New Rachel

I finally got caught up with the first few episodes of Glee.  As we now find out, Rachel and Kurt are in NYC, Finn is with the army so that leaves the McKinley High Glee Club needing new members.  Enter Marley Rose, a transfer sophomore who auditions for Glee.  She is played by Melissa Benoist who I think is very likeable and a natural actor.  Watch her eyes!  They're very expressive. 

The show introduces her in this great duet with Rachel (Lea Michele) where they sing New York State of Mind.  To see that duet, please click here

Through the powers of google, I found out that she's a product of Marymount Manhattan College's Musical Theatre program.  Here she is a Millie in 2009 singing Gimme Gimme:
