Better get those tissues ready.

Glee has released another heartbreaking sneek peek at its Cory Monteith tribute episode.

In the latest music preview, Amber Riley covers “I’ll Stand by You” in honor of Monteith, who died of an accidental drug overdose in July. The episode will bid farewell to Monteith’s character, affable quarterback Finn Hudson.

Last week, Glee released a promo of the tribute set to Lea Michele singing Bob Dylan’s “Make You Feel My Love.” Also taking part in the sure-to-be-emotional goodbye: Co-star Naya Rivera, who will cover The Band Perry’s “If I Die Young.”  (You can hear Rivera’s track here.)

Listen to Riley’s rendition below.

Glee’s “Farewell to Finn” episode will air this Thursday at 9 p.m., with all proceeds from the tribute music going to Project Limelight Society. Do you plan to watch?

    The most touching moment was when Mr Schu took his Letterman jacket out and broke down crying and his lady came to him and gave him moral support. I cried throughout and will miss his great performances cause he was a voice to be reckoned with. I just wish he had more support when he was still alive cause he must’ve not felt this but we were there, now we can’t tell him. Hopefully up in heaven he will see the show.

    This was such a sad day, I can not wait to see their tribute for sure will have tissues. He was so young so talented so much ahead of him I hope all the young actors in Hollywood & NY will learn from this tragic happening.
