Lea Michele Honors Cory Monteith with Memorial Service

Lea Michele and Ryan Murphy joined forces on Thursday (July 25) to honor and remember the late Cory Monteith with a memorial service.

“Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith,” producer 20th Century Fox Television said in a statement (via THR). “We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time.”

Cory passed away on July 13 at the age of 31 due to a “mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol” while in a Vancouver hotel. The fifth season premiere of Glee has been pushed back by a week to give the cast and crew time to grieve.
