16 members of the cast gathered on Zoom to talk about their favorite memories of Naya on the 10-year anniversary of her character Santana Lopez coming out as a lesbian on network TV. The reunion was part of the 2021 GLAAD Media Awards, which aired on Thursday (April 8).

Demi Lovato, who played Santana’s girlfriend Dani on Glee, opened the tribute. She said, “I will always cherish the chance I got to play Naya‘s girlfriend, Dani, on Glee.

Amber Riley Reveals the 'Glee' Song That Still Haunts Her Today

Amber Riley is looking back at her time on Glee and she revealed the one song that she had to perform that still haunts her to this day.

The 35-year-old actress, who played Mercedes Jones on the hit Fox series, took to TikTok this week to participate in the Coco Jones Challenge.

The challenge is all about people using a soundbite from former Disney star Coco Jones‘ live stream in which she said, “Yes I did that. And you would do it too for a check. I was an employee! And I was gonna get employee of the month.”

Amber shared a clip of herself singing the original song “Hell to the No” on Glee and then the video cut to her lip-syncing to the Coco Jones quote.

“This song still haunts me 😂😂😂,” Amber captioned the video. Watch below!

Amber recently had some exciting news to share about her personal life.

Glee's Heather Morris Says It's 'Incredibly Tough' to Act Like Mark Salling's Death is 'Invisible'

Heather Morris is speaking out to make sure that the death of her Glee co-star Mark Salling is not overlooked.

It all started when Heather noticed that a fan account tweeted about Glee‘s season two Christmas episode, but included a vomit face emoji on Mark‘s face.

“the vomit face on Marks face is offensive,” Heather tweeted.

Mark died by suicide in January 2018, just weeks after pleading guilty to possession of child pornography. He was expected to serve four to seven years in jail and have to register as a sex offender.

Two other original Glee stars have passed away – Cory Monteith and Naya Rivera – and some fans only choose to remember these two stars.

One day after slamming the fan’s tweet, Heather returned to Twitter to release a lengthy statement about Mark and why she chooses to remember all three co-stars who died.

Naya Rivera's 'Glee' Co-Stars Launch Fundraiser For Her Favorite Charity

Naya Rivera is being remembered by her Glee cast in a very special way this holiday season.

Heather Morris, Amber Riley, Jenna Ushkowitz, Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale and many more from the Glee cast have teamed up for the SNIXXMASs Charity Drive, which will benefit one of Naya‘s favorite charities, Alexandria House, a nonprofit organization in Los Angeles that provides safe housing for women and children.

“If you were lucky enough to know Naya, you know she threw some epic parties,” the GoFundMe page reads about the fundraiser. “The best of them all was her annual Christmas party, which she dubbed Snixxmas. Snixxmas was like Naya herself… sparkling, fabulous and one hell of a good time! But it wasn’t only glitz, glamour and gay apparel. Every holiday season, Naya found ways to give back.”

It continues, “Recently, Naya began working with a local non-profit in Los Angeles called Alexandria House. She not only raised and contributed funds for them, but also volunteered her time and effort to the organization.”

Heather also added another note on her own Instagram page, writing that Naya “always inspired me because she never let a holiday season go by without giving back to those in need. We’re keeping Naya’s spirit alive this holiday season by raising funds for one of her favorite organizations, Alexandria House. Please, give what you can and help spread Snixxmas cheer.”

Naya sadly passed away earlier this year after accidentally drowning in Lake Piru in California during a weekend trip with her only son, Josey Dorsey.

Her ex-husband, Ryan Dorsey, just recently filed a wrongful death lawsuit. Get all the details here…
