Sony Columbia Records - 03/24/2010

The excitement continues to build for the prime time return of Fox's hit comedy Glee on Tuesday, April 13, 2010. The excitement continues one week later with the release of The Power of Madonna on Tuesday, April 20. The Power of Madonna marks the next official chapter in the Glee music songbook. This much talked about and highly anticipated mini-album features the cast of Glee's distinctive and unique take on such Madonna classics as "Like A Virgin," "Express Yourself," "Vogue," "Like A Prayer" and more (see below for full track listing). Entertainment Weekly announced last October that the Material Girl was among Glee's admirers and had given free reign over her catalog for this special Madonna themed episode. This blissful soundtrack gives fans a chance to own the music from this special Madonna themed episode to coincide with its airing on April 20, 2010.

Celebrated for its witty writing and ability to breathe new life into pop music, Glee has proven to be an unstoppable cultural phenomenon. The most award winning new show, Glee was recently honored with accolades from the Golden Globes (Best Television Series, Comedy or Musical), Screen Actors Guild (Outstanding Performance by an Ensemble in a Comedy Series) and People's Choice Award (Favorite New TV Comedy). The music from Glee has become an international sensation with Glee: The Music, Volume 1 and Glee: The Music, Volume 2 topping charts in Australia, UK, New Zealand, Ireland and Canada. Here in the US, over 4.5 million songs have been downloaded in addition to both Glee: The Music, Volume 1 and Glee: The Music, Volume 2 being certified Gold by the R.I.A.A for sales in excess of 500,000 units.
