Lea Michele Records Beautiful Song for Cory Monteith

Matt Dekneef

Nearly a month after the sad news of Cory Monteith’s death from an overdose broke, his girlfriend Lea Michele was back in the “Glee” studio to record a tribute to the actor.

“Couldn’t have picked a more beautiful & perfect song to start the year with,” Lea tweeted yesterday.

She also wore a necklace with an ornament on it inscribed with “Cory.”

Filming of the new season was postponed up until this week. The third episode was written in honor of Cory and will deal with his absence from the series. FOX Chairman of Entertainment Kevin Reilly and the show’s creator Ryan Murphy have both said the show will directly address Cory’s death as well as drug use and addiction.

FOX also released a short memorial card to Cory featuring sweet clips of his work as Finn. You can watch it here:
