The world is still reeling from Cory’s shocking death on July 13, but a day later, his ‘Glee’ co-star paid tribute to him in the most heartwarming and touching way.

The Glee cast is beside themselves after the tragic death of their humble co-star, Cory Monteith. On July 14, the leader of the gleeks, Matthew Morrison showed immense strength and love, expressing his feelings — fittingly — through song, singing a heart-wrenching tribute to Cory during his concert in New York City.

Before the show started at 54 Below, Matthew reportedly came out to address the audience, Us Weekly reports. “We lost a great young man too soon,” Matthew said, according to an eyewitness.

“He said Cory was a beautiful person,” the concertgoer says. Matthew reportedly then said, “You came out to see a show, I came out to do one, so let’s honor Cory with this performance.”

Matthew dedicated the song “What I Did For Love,” a classic Broadway tune from  A Chorus Line, and was so emotional he was barely able to get through the whole thing. “He was very emotional on stage,” says the eyewitness. “It was difficult for him to get up to perform, but he did not want to disappoint anyone.”

The song has special meaning for Matthew and Cory, and also Cory’s girlfriend and co-star, Lea Michele. Lea’s character Rachel Berry performed “What I Did For Love” during the premiere of Glee’s second season, and the lyrics closely mirror Lea’s relationship with Cory, especially now that he’s passed away:

Love is never gone
As we travel on
Love’s what we’ll remember
Kiss today goodbye
And point me toward tomorrow
We did what we had to do
Won’t forget, can’t regret
What I did for love.

It sounds like the perfect way to honor Cory and remember the incredible relationship he had with Lea. reported exclusively that she is taking Cory’s death extremely hard and that she’s “devastated” and “inconsolable.”

It’s times like these that Lea and Matthew, and the other cast members of Glee can lean on each other. They’ll certainly need one another — Cory’s death has torn us up, we can only imagine how his closest friends feel.

Our thoughts and prayers are with them and Cory’s family during this extremely hard time.
