Glee’s Chord Overstreet (Sam) paid tribute to Cory Monteith (Finn) at his recent concert, and several other Glee co-stars were backstage to support him.
Chord performed in L.A. on July 20, where he dedicated the Travie McCoy song “Billionaire” — which is the first song Chord ever sang on Glee — to Cory, according to Rumor Fix. “I wasn’t going to play this but... Argh,” Chord told the crowd. “I recently have been going through a lot of stuff with a losing really, really dear friend of mine, so I want to play this song for him. This is for you, Cory.”“I sang this [on Glee] with Kevin McHale and Cory Monteith,” Chord added, according to Just Jared. “I love you, buddy.” So sweet!
Glee’s Dianna Agron (Quinn), Jenna Ushkowitz (Tina), Kevin McHale (Artie), and Samuel Larsen (Joe) were all in the audience to watch Chord perform. Kevin got the crowd to sing along during Chord’s song, Rumor Fix writes that Dianna and Jenna were in tears as Chord sang.
Dianna had addressed Cory’s passing last week with a very heartfelt statement. “He was one of the most generous and kind people that I have ever met,” Dianna said about Cory. “My heart goes out to his family, to Lea [Michele], to everyone that is struggling with the loss of our friend. We will miss you Cory. We will always carry a piece of you with us.”
