Yesterday, we got a first listen at Naya Rivera’s emotion-drenched rendition of “If I Die Young” – a cover featured in Glee’s special tribute episode to Cory Monteith, which airs this Thursday on Fox. Now the rest of the tribute’s heart-wrenching tunes have made their way to YouTube as well.
Each of these six tracks may make you misty – but given view counts, it seems the one that’s had the greatest impact so far is Lea Michele’s cover of “Make You Feel My Love.” (That figures; after all, Michele and Monteith dated both on and offscreen.)
Do you agree that Michele’s song is the most poignant – and saddest – of the whole collection? Give a listen below, then cast your vote.
“Seasons of Love,” featuring Amber Riley, Naya Rivera, Chris Colfer, Mark Salling, Harry Shum Jr., and Glee’s current cast. (The old cast members share the big solo, though Riley naturally gets the glory note.)
