Matthew then changed his opening number — and dedicated the song to Cory.

He chose “What I Did For Love” — a show tune from “A Chorus Line” — which was also featured on “Glee” Season 2 and sung by Lea Michele.

  1. The song has special meaning for Matthew and Cory, and also Cory’s girlfriend and co-star, Lea Michele. Lea’s character Rachel Berry performed “What I Did For Love” during the premiere of Glee’s second season, and the lyrics closely mirror Lea’s relationship with Cory, especially now that he’s passed away:

    Love is never gone
    As we travel on
    Love’s what we’ll remember
    Kiss today goodbye
    And point me toward tomorrow
    We did what we had to do
    Won’t forget, can’t regret
    What I did for love.
