TV show Glee has included The Band Perry breakout hit “If I Die Young,” the poignant tune about a life ended too early, in its tribute show Thursday (Oct. 10) for star Cory Monteith, who died earlier this year after battling addictions.

The show is expected to be one of the television season’s biggest events, as Monteith’s death made international headlines.

“If I Die Young” will be performed by Naya Rivera, who plays Santana on the show. And producers already have posted her cover online.

Other songs in the tribute show include Bruce Springsteen’s “No Surrender” and James Taylor’s “Fire and Rain.”
