It's hard to believe one year has gone by since Cory Monteith's much too early death. We'll always remember Monteith as an incredibly talented actor who will always be greatly missed and forever remembered, and our hearts still ache for his on-screen and off-screen girlfriend, Lea Michele.

Monteith has been the source of inspiration for some of Michele's most emotional music, in both her heartbreaking ballads and powerful anthems that show her immense strength. It's amazing that she's been able to open up so beautifully and share more sides to Monteith.
