Glee has offered a tribute to its late star Naya Rivera who was known for her role as Santana Lopez. "Naya was a fierce talent with so much more to do and this is such a terrible tragedy. We are forever grateful for the indelible contribution she made to GLEE, from the first episode to the last. Our hearts are broken and our thoughts go out to her family, friends and young son."
Meanwhile, fans are mourning her loss by bringing back the actress' best performances from the musical series including her covers of Adele, Destiny's Child, and Taylor Swift hits.

Meanwhile, her performance of The Band Perry's "If I Die Young" during the Cory Monteith / Finn Hudson tribute episode now holds an even more special significance for fans.
Naya's body was recovered nearly a week after she was reported missing from a boat outing with four-year-old son Josey.
