After the Fox musical TV show included a performance of ‘I Will Always Love You’ by Amber Riley – who plays Mercedes Jones in the series – last month, ‘Glee’ bosses are said to be planning a full-length episode dedicated to the legendary singer, who passed away last month, according to PerezHilton.com.
Lea Michele – who plays Rachel Berry – in ‘Glee’ has already hinted that she has been filming a “really special” new episode dedicated to one of the “world’s most amazing singers”.
Writing on her twitter page, she said in a series of tweets: “Starting a new episode today. A very special tribute to one of the worlds most amazing singers. Very excited about this one.
“Singing a really great version of one of my favorite songs today with @MsAmberPRiley @NayaRivera and @chriscolfer :)
“Filming something right now that's going to be really special.. Can't wait for you all to see it. (sic)”
