Matthew Morrison decided to honor the late Cory Monteith the best way he knows how, through song.
The 34-year-old actor/singer opened his show with an a capella version of What I Did For Love, a song from the Broadway show Chorus Line, that he dedicated to the late Glee star.
"You guys came to see a show, I came to perform a show, so that's what we'll do," he told the audience at his New York City show at 54 Below on Sunday, July 14 (via The New York Times). "And we'll do it in Cory's honor."
As Glee fans may recall, Lea Michele's character Rachel Berry performed this song during the season 2 premiere in 2010. Lyrics read: "Kiss today goodbye, The sweetness and the sorrow. Wish me luck, the same to you. But I can't regret what I did for love, what I did for love."
Monteith was found dead in his hotel room in Vancouver, Canada on Saturday, July 13. He was 31.
