Lea Michele was given an ''incredible'' art book by Stevie Nicks when Cory Monteith died.

The 'Scream Queens' actress was incredibly touched by the personal gift she received from the Fleetwood Mac singer after her boyfriend and 'Glee' co-star died from an overdose in 2013, and it is a huge source of inspiration and comfort to her.

She said: ''I have this incredible book that Stevie Nicks gave me in 2013 when my boyfriend died. She gave me this art book of hers that she put notes in over the years and song lyrics, and then she rewrote personal notes for me that say things like, 'Keep singing, and have faith.' ''

The 30-year-old star turned to the book to find a ''sign'' when she needed help coming up with a title for her second album, just a day before her record company needed it to be submitted.

She told Billboard magazine: ''I poured myself the biggest glass of red wine, I put Fleetwood Mac on my vinyl, I lit candles, and I legit started praying and looking for a sign.

''I was looking through this book and praying that there was an answer in it, somewhere. And there was something in there that said, 'The only thing that matters is you, and who you are.' That's what I've been trying to do with this whole record -- just connect to me and where I'm from.''

And the message made the brunette beauty turn to her best friend, Jonathan Groff, and he came up with the title 'Places.

She recalled: ''I was like, 'What's something from our time in New York -- a word, or a phrase, or something that is from theater, or from us?' And he said, 'What about 'Places'? When you're on Broadway, you get your 30-minute call, then your 15-minute call. You hear 'Places everyone!' And that means it's showtime.''
