Tori Cornell 4/21/20

Toni Cornell, daughter of late Soundgarden singer Chris Cornell, unveiled a cover of Temple Of The Dog‘s “Hunger Strike” for coronavirus relief during LiveXLive’s Music Lives digital music festival on Sunday (April 19th).

Toni said in introducing the song, “I’m gonna sing one of my favorite songs for you guys. I love you, Daddy, and I hope I do this some justice.” Toni’s father, along with other members of Soundgarden and Pearl Jam, recorded the track in 1991 as the supergroup Temple Of The Dog.

The 15-year-old wrote on Instagram, “Sitting in my dad’s home studio during this crazy time makes me miss him even more. Music is the greatest healer and the most powerful way to bring people together especially during tragedy. If my dad were here, I know he would have been the first to donate his time and effort.”

Toni also revealed she and her family are donating $50,000 to MusiCares COVID-19 relief efforts on behalf of the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation.
