Lea Michele headed back to the Glee recording studio Monday, little more than three weeks since the July 13 death of her boyfriend and costar, Cory Monteith.
"Couldn't have picked a more beautiful & perfect song to start the year with," Michele, 26, Tweeted Monday.
She also wore a special necklace, a simple silver medallion on a chain. The ornament reads "Cory."
Cory Monteith's mom, Ann McGregor, has reached out to the Glee star's fans to offer her appreciation for their well wishes after his death.
"I would like to thank all of Cory's supporters at this extremely emotional time," she Tweeted. "Your support has been overwhelming … thank you!"
The 31-year-old actor was found dead in a Vancouver hotel room on July 13, from a lethal combination of heroin and alcohol.
Fox's Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly has revealed details about Glee's plan to handle the passing of star Cory Monteith, who died on July 13 from a mixture of alcohol and heroin.
Monteith's character Finn Hudson will be written out of the show in the third episode which will "deal directly with the incidents involved in Cory's passing and the drug abuse in particular," Reilly said Thursday during a Television Critics Association panel in Los Angeles.
Reilly adds that producer Ryan Murphy will also shoot PSAs with cast members in character, "as friends of [Finn's]. They're going to speak directly to the audience and I think they're going to be very impactful."
Cheyenne Jackson and Monte Lapka are calling it quits.
"Cheyenne Jackson and his husband Monte Lapka have mutually decided to divorce. The couple have been together for 13 years and were married in N.Y. State two years ago. It is an amicable parting and, understandably, a private matter," a rep for the actor tells PEOPLE.
Jackson, 38, who has had roles on Behind the Candelabra, Curb Your Enthusiasm, 30 Rock and Glee wed Lapka in the Hamptons in 2011.
Two weeks after the death of boyfriend Cory Monteith, Lea Michele has broken her silence on the tragedy.
Although her reps released two statements on her behalf following the death of her 31-year-old Glee costar earlier this month, Michele, 26, had remained mum. On Monday, she remembered Monteith by sharing a personal snapshot and short message on her Instagram account.
"Thank you all for helping me through this time with your enormous love & support," the actress captioned the oceanside photo. "Cory will forever be in my heart."
Lea Michele is now distraught following the July 13 death of her boyfriend, Cory Monteith – but just last month, the actress could not have seemed happier with the actor by her side.
Michele, 26, was recently surprised by Monteith, 31, on a cover shoot for Marie Claire Mexico and Latin America, the magazine's Editor-in-Chief Ariadne Grant revealed on Wednesday.
"[She] showed another side of her personality, softer and more innocent on the interview when she got all excited with some questions," Grant said in a statement posted on the monthly's U.K. site. "That side was even more evident when Cory showed up almost at the end of the session. She was very happy about him being there."

But if you were busy soaking up some rays – or, equally likely, picking out a onesie for the royal baby – here are five things you might have missed this weekend:
Glee creator Ryan Murphy is speaking out about the death of Cory Monteith and revealing how the show will handle the loss of one of its biggest stars.
"It's always sad and shocking when somebody so young dies, but one of the things that made it even more upsetting is that so many of us who knew and loved him were actively involved in trying to get him better," Murphy said in an interview with the Hollywood Reporter.
Fox, which airs Glee, announced Friday that the series has delayed production, as well as its fifth season premiere date, in the wake of Monteith's death at 31 from a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol.
The show must go on – but not on its originally scheduled date.
Following the death of Cory Monteith, Fox's hit series has delayed production, as well as its fifth season premiere date, the network announced Friday.
"In light of the tragic passing of beloved Glee cast member Cory Monteith, the series' executive producers, 20th Century Fox Television and Fox Broadcasting Company have jointly decided to delay the start of production of Glee until early August," the statement said, adding that the premiere has been moved to Sept. 26 from its original Sept. 19 date.
They were young, talented and thrust into superstardom almost overnight. For the cast of Fox's Glee, life quickly went into "work hard, play hard" mode after the show debuted in 2009.
And before his sudden death at age 31 from a toxic mix of heroin and alcohol, Cory Monteith experienced both extremes.
Unlike the much-younger characters they portray on TV, "these aren't high-school kids," a Glee insider says of the cast. And they had easy access to the perks – and pitfalls – of fame.
"They had a lot handed to them," says the source. "People will shut down clubs so they can dance. They've done their share of partying. That's part of what it's like to be a young celebrity."
