Chris Cornell’s widow Vicky Cornell has shared very rare video of Chris playing the Soundgarden classic “Black Hole Sun” for Brad Pitt and others at an EBMRF charity show in January 2017, just 4 months before his death. Pitt introduced the performance. Pitt is currently producing a documentary film about Chris Cornell’s life.
Vicky Cornell wrote on Instagram, “‘Black Hole Sun’ was released 25 years ago. #chriscornell and #sting perform acoustic in Malibu for our friends @ebmrf -January 2017. #noonesingslikeyouanymore #keepthepromise #soundgarden #legendsneverdie.”
Vicky posted last month on April 5th, “#flashbackfriday to my husband’s performance for his friend @mikemccreadypj Mad Season show with the Seattle Symphony. Happy Birthday Mike! “Without love no one ever grows nothing ever sings” A. Wood. #chriscornell #templeofthedog.”
Vicky also recently posted, “Humbled and privileged to have co-hosted this year’s Spring Luncheon for the @nyspcc – the world’s first child protective agency.
Thank you Tara Westover (best selling author of Educated’) for joining and sharing your incredible story and thank you to all the amazing women, friends and everyone who helped make this luncheon such a success.
Excited to share this year’s luncheon was the most successful yet, raising over $400,000 to benefit programs that help prevent and treat child abuse in all its forms. So grateful to you all- this money raised is without auctions, performances, it’s truly just about people who come together to give and help the most vulnerable children. It’s rare to see that kind of giving and I’m just so proud and so grateful.
Also want to give a big shout out and thank you to @chrisstapleton and his amazing wife Morgane Stapleton for the continued love and dedication to helping us #keepthepromise for Chris. Thank you and The Outlaw State of Kind Foundation for your support and most generous donation in honor of The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation to support the Trauma Recovery Program. #nyspcc #keepthepromiseforchriscornell #chriscornell.”
