This July will mark a year since Cory Monteith passed away from his drug addiction and left his girlfriend Lea Michele heartbroken. Word had been that the Glee co-stars were about to get engaged before his untimely death even though they had been in different parts of the country at the time.
During the horrid ordeal, Michele had been in the studio working on er debut album and went on to record a song in honor of her late beau. Yesterday, the track which is titled, “If You Say So” had been released. The song was written seven days after Monteith’s passing.
Check out the song and maybe have a handkerchief handy since we all know the song was sad story behind it.
The Teen Choice Awards are usually a time for actors and musicians in the genres directed towards teenagers to get together to compete for the chance to win fan chosen awards shaped like surfboard. While the awards are a time for happiness and to catch up for the nominees, one nominee and probably the entire cast of that show, had been in mourning.
One of the most memorable moments of the awards ceremony was when Glee’s Lea Michele took the stage for the first time since the passing of her boyfriend and fellow co-star, Cory Monteith almost a month back. The actress was accepting her award for Choice TV Actress when she took that moment to thank the fans for their support in her tough time, “I just wanted to be here today to personally thank all of you and tell everyone out there how much your love and support has meant to me over these very past few difficult weeks,” she said
“Not that I had any doubt before, but you guys are most certainly the greatest fans in the world and I wanted to dedicate this award to Cory,” she added, choking back tears.
“For all of you out there who loved and admired Cory as much as I did, I promise that with your love we’re going to get through this together. He was very special to me and also to the world,” Lea continued. “We were very lucky to witness his incredible talent, his handsome smile, and his beautiful beautiful heart. So whether you knew him personally or just as Finn Hudson, Cory reached out and he became a part of all of our hearts and that’s where he will stay forever. So thank you guys so much. Thank you.”
