This past Sunday (17th) was father’s day. While many spent the day celebrating the holiday with their dad’s/parental father figures, there were also those who have lost a parent and found a different way to honor them. Chris Cornell’s daughter, Toni, paid a tribute to her dad as she shared a duet that she recorded with him before his death of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Toni leads the vocals as Chris’ voice is heard in the background, making it a beautiful and heartfelt piece. The song is available to purchase and Toni is donating all of its proceeds to the International Rescue Committee.
“My father taught me to be a voice for others who don’t have one. Especially with the tragic events happening today, where children are being separated from their parents at the border, it is not okay. Please help us keep the promise (on behalf of the world’s most vulnerable children) for my father.”
Toni wrote the following note on Father’s Day:
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. You believed in me when I didn’t. I miss your love everyday. Recording this song with you was a special and amazing experience I wish I could repeat 100 times over and I know you would too. Happy Father’s Day daddy, nothing compares to you.
