Exclusive: Meet ‘Glee Project’ Season 2’s Charlie & Dani
It’s that time of year again: The Glee Project time! Now that the third season of Glee is over and done with until the fourth season starts up in September, you can get your Glee fill with the second season of The Glee Project. What can you expect from this season? For starters, there are 14 contenders vying for a dream role on Glee. Their dream grand prize: a guest starring role on the hit FOX series! Season one saw its winners Damian McGinty and Samuel Larsen each land seven-episode arcs on Glee, with two of the final four contenders Lindsay Pearce and Alex Newell both earning two-episode arcs as runners-up. Who will win it all this season?
Meet 22-year-old Chicago-based Charlie Lubeck. The singer/actor has been performing for 15 years and has a BFA in acting under his belt. Charlie has ADHD and a low-spectral autism and while that brings about struggle for him, his team of supporters (whom he calls his “team of superheroes”) help him in his quest to follow his dreams!

Since then, she’s taught herself to play guitar and writes songs. She placed in the top 48 of America’s Got Talent last year in 2011. The androgynous gal has expressed that she would want to play an androgynous female who bravely walks away from her Mormon upbringing on Glee.
