FOX series "Glee" ran a tribute episode in the memory of late actor Cory Monteith on Thursday. Many songs were performed in his honor but the big highlight was when Lea Michele performed on the show. Monteith's real life girlfriend did a heartfelt cover of Bob Dylan's "Make You Feel My Love."
Monteith died from an accidental drug overdose in July. With Cory unable to play "Glee" Finn Hudson, his character had to be laid to rest on the series. All the cast members grieved for Monteith and Hudson on the episode titled "The Quarterback" with their emotional performances.
The most emotional moment came when Michele sang at the end of the episode. The cast of season five and some old faces reunited in the "Glee" choir room. Lea as Rachel Berry broke down performing the Bob Dylan love song "Make You Feel My Love." (It was most recently covered by Adele on her "19" album.) She personally chose to sing that track in honor of both Monteith and his Finn character. It was very a heartbreaking yet sincere and beautiful way to say goodbye to one of McKinley High School's most beloved students.
All the songs performed on "The Quarter" back are now available on iTunes as stand-alone singles or together on an EP. Proceeds from the online music sales will go toward Project Limelight, a Canadian theater camp that Monteith supported.
