Chris Cornell‘s daughter Toni Cornell is set to perform tonight (December 16th) on NBC’s The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. Blabbermouth posted the 17-year-old singer posted on Instagram, writing: “Tune in Thursday!!! So excited to perform a special song in honor of my dad on @fallontonight @jimmyfallon.”
Back in 2018 Toni shared a recording of she and her father covering Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” to mark Father’s Day (June 17th). Toni posted the song at her father’s YouTube page, writing, “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. 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.”
Chris Cornell hanged himself in his room at the MGM Grand Detroit hotel on May 18th, 2017, following a Soundgarden show at the city’s Fox Theatre. He was 52 years old.
