If the heartbreaking teaser for Glee's tribute to late star Cory Monteith -- "The Quarterback" -- didn't leave you in tears, the music from the episode sure will.

Columbia Records and Fox -- as well as the artists involved -- will donate 100 percent of the net proceeds from music sales from the tribute episode in the U.S. and Canada to Project Limelight, a charity Monteith was heavily involved in.

Monteith was found dead July 13 at the age of 31. An autopsy revealed that the actor died of "mixed drug toxicity, involving heroin and alcohol."

"What you will see in the episode is what really happened," Glee co-creator Ryan Murphy recently said of the tribute. "Brad [Falchuk] and Ian [Brennan] and I wrote that episode and Brad directed it, and those performances that you'll see, almost everything in that episode is from the first take of every performance because the actors and the crew had a really hard time shooting it. I've never seen a crew that you can't continue shooting because they've left the room sobbing. It was very hard. I struggled even working on it because what you're seeing is what they felt not just about Finn but Cory. It's amazing performances across the board and everybody went into it with a lot of love," he continued. "What I loved about it is when you write something like that, there's no right way to do it."

Check out the music, below, and hit the comments with your thoughts. How will you say farewell to Monteith's Finn Hudson? Glee airs Thursdays at 9 p.m. on Fox.
