Poignant Father’s Day Nothing Compares 2U Duet by Toni and Chris Cornell

June 18, 2018

NEW YORK – A poignant Father’s Day message penned by Greek-American Toni Cornell, daughter of the late rocker Chris Cornell, was posted on Cornell’s Youtube channel on June 17, Rolling Stone reported.

“Daddy,” the 13-year-old Toni wrote, “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. – Toni”

Through his Greek-American wife Vicky’s influence, Cornell, best known as the frontman for the bands Soundgarden and Audioslave, converted to the Greek Orthodox Church. The couple had two children, daughter Toni in 2004 and son Christopher Nicholas in 2005.

In addition to his music, Cornell also became involved in philanthropy and started the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to support children facing challenges, including homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect.

Cornell, 52, took his own life in May of last year. On Father’s Day 2017, just one month after Cornell’s death, his daughter posted a note about the song The Beautiful Ones from Purple Rain by Prince.
