Chris Cornell's 12-Year-Old Daughter Performs In Tribute Concert
Posted: August 4, 2017
NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess) -- Toni Cornell, the 12-year-old daughter of late singer Chris Cornell joined OneRepublic on stage to perform Leonard Cohen song "Hallelujah" as a part of a tribute to both her father and late Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington.

“It’s an honor to perform this for my dad and Chester and to sing for them,” Toni Cornell said.

The show was part of the GMA (Good Morning America) Summer Concert series and was originally slated to be a performance by Linkin Park. However, OneRepublic took a break from their current tour to fill in and take part in the tribute.

Bennington and Cornell were both friends who had toured together on multiple occasions in the past and both performers took their lives in apparent suicides, Cornell in May, and Bennington just last month.

“Chester sang this [Hallelujah] at Chris’ funeral, and this is arguably one of the greatest songs written in the last 50 years,” OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder told ABC News. “It’s a very special song to us, and I think to most people and especially to Toni [Cornell] as well.”
