‘Glee’ Will Break Your Heart with Lea Michele, Mark Salling, and Naya Rivera’s Tribute Songs for Cory Monteith

Glee gets ready to say goodbye to Corey Cory Monteith on the October 10 episode.

Every Glee fan is looking toward this coming Thursday with a heavy heart. This week’s episode will mark the series’ commemoration of star Cory Monteith, who died suddenly in July following an episode of drug abuse. Monteith’s character, Finn Hudson, has been written off the show via an unexplained death, and will be duly honored by his classmates in the form of song. Characters closest to Finn will pay tribute, including best friend Noah Puckerman (Mark Salling), stepbrother Kurt Hummel (Chris Colfer), one time lover Santana Lopez (Naya Rivera), and — perhaps most powerfully — fiancée Rachel, played of course by Lea Michele, who was Monteith’s real life girlfriend.

In preparation of what promises to be a very heavy episode, difficult to bear for diehard and casual fans alike, Glee has released recordings of some of the songs we’ll be experiencing on Thursday night. You can listen below by clicking each link, via ONTD:

“No Surrender,” sung by Mark Salling

“And If I Die Young,” sung by Naya Rivera

“Fire and Rain,” sung by Kevin McHale and Chord Overstreet

“I’ll Stand by You,” sung by Amber Riley

“Seasons of Love,” sung by Chris Colfer, Mark Salling, Jenna Ushkowitz, and Harry Shum Jr.

“Make You Feel My Love,” sung by Lea Michele
