Chris Cornell, his children Lily, Toni, and Christopher, and a bevy of Hollywood and music stars pledge their dedication to speak out against genocide and other human rights violations in a new PSA for The Promise campaign.
Chris Cornell released “The Promise” just a couple of months before his death last year for the film of the same name. The song has been nominated for a Grammy, and there is a campaign right now to get the song an Oscar nomination.
The clip opens with Toni, Lily, and Christopher.
“From basic human rights to women’s rights, my dad believed that if we each vow to keep one promise, we could make the world a better place,” Toni says.
Lily says, “I vow to keep the promise to protect the world’s most vulnerable youth.”
“I vow to keep that promise for my Dad,” Christopher Jr. adds.
Audioslave guitarist Tom Morello, Soundgarden drummer Matt Cameron, Tom Hanks, Barbara Streisand, Jennifer Lopez, Snoop Dogg, Serj Tankian, Elton John, Hugh Jackman, George Clooney, Jimmy Fallon, Ryan Gosling, Ozzy Osbourne, Courteney Cox, Don Cheadle, and many others also appear in the video.
