Chris Cornell's Daughter Sings 'Hallelujah' In Tribute To Late Dad And Chester Bennington

If this won't make you cry, nothing will.

On Friday, Aug. 4, 2017, Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell's 12-year-old daughter, Toni, appeared on Good Morning America and gave a performance viewers aren't soon to forget. Backed by OneRepublic, Toni sang a tribute to her late father and his friend Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington, who also recently committed suicide.

Her chosen song? Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah."

OneRepublic singer Ryan Tedder explained the track choice to GMA host Michael Strahan. "Chester sang this at Chris' funeral and this is arguably one of the greatest songs written in the last 50 years, I think by most people's accords," he said. "It's a very special song to us and I think to most people and especially to Toni, as well."

Toni noted, "It's an honor to perform this for my dad and Chester and to sing for them."

As Nicki Swift previously reported, Chris died on May 17, 2017, after being found dead in his hotel bathroom. Later reports revealed that he had committed suicide by hanging. Bennington, who was 41 years old, was found dead weeks later in his California home on what would have been Chris' 53rd birthday. His death was later ruled a suicide by hanging as well.

As to be expected, Chris and Bennington, icons of the music industry, have been publicly mourned by fans and friends alike.
