Toni, whom Cornell parented with wife Vicky Cornell, is proving that musical talent runs in the family, as she often posts videos of herself playing and singing.
“Love you so much angel,” Vicky commented on the video.
In December, Toni appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to sing a cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U.” The song choice was a tribute to Chris, whose own cover of the song was nominated this year for best rock performance at the Grammys. Chris Cornell, who died by suicide in May 2017 at age 52, was also nominated for best rock album for the posthumous covers record No One Sings Like You Anymore Vol. 1.
