Toni Cornell, the daughter of the late legendary Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell posted this moving cover of Prince’s ‘Nothing Compares 2 U’. It takes on a stunningly new feeling of heartbreak considering how Chris passed last year and how his loved ones now confront that grief. The song features both father and daughter performing the lovesick ballad together with Toni taking the lead. It is very moving to hear.
“Daddy, I love you and miss you so much. You were the best father anyone could ask for. Our relationship was so special, and you were always there for me. You gave me courage when I didn’t have any,” 13-year-old Toni Cornell wrote in the caption of the song, which was shared on Chris Cornell’s YouTube page.
In 2015, Chris visited our pre-Lounge performance space, Studio 7. Lauren hosted an intimate conversation and intimate acoustic session with Chris where performed some of his solo songs and Soundgarden classics.
