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. Watch below.

      In the liner notes for the Audioslave s/t record, it lists the huge thing of “Thank You’s” and it lists “Susan Silver, and Lillian Silver”…not Lillian Cornell.
      Im pretty sure she goes by “cornell- Silver” now.

        my post was to point out that neither was indicated (intentionally) and we all know for certan lily is a cornell. just notifying the unsuspecting reader of the obvious since the ‘writer’ is pro widow.

          I wonder why they cut Lily out of the YouTube video when she’s in the Twitter video.

          • suz

            because everything that is presented is a cut&paste to their (widow/bb) narrative.

          • Trovoid

            Yeah but Vicky usually at least pretends to have Lily involved in a positive light.

          • HippieChic61

            Her Mothers day tweet to Vicky would confirm they have a good relationship.

          • Trovoid

            I just wonder how much of it is for show. Everyone casts their highlight reels online. Maybe they have a great relationship, I’m not implying that I know anything. I have heard that this type of behavior was happening when Susan and Chris split up. I feel Chris’ death brought them closer together but I wouldn’t be surprised if she used to be treated at least a little bit differently than her siblings.

          • HippieChic61

            I dont see Lily making a sweet post to Vicky for show. (Im not implying that I know anything either.) From what I can see she was different from his other kids, which is common when one parent remarries. Im sure Chris loved Lily the same as he loved Toni and Christopher but it doesnt seem that she was in his life very often.

          • Trovoid

            You’re right, I doubt a kid that age would make a post about a stepmother that they dislike.

            Absolutely, I’m sure Chris loved them all equally. I’m not going to judge the situation with Lily. The way things ended with Susan, it must’ve been hard to see her. I don’t completely blame Vicky for Chris cutting out his old family and friends. A big part of it was Chris trying to start over after rehab and his divorce.

            Thank you for not attacking Vicky! All she did was love him and her kids! Shes getting a lot of bs that she doesn’t deserve.!! I’ve been privileged to have one on one contact with her, and shes very sweet & humble regardless of what those trolling her might say 🙂

            I’m surprised that Vicky didn’t insert herself into the video.

        • HippieChic61

          I dont think anyone is questioning that she a Cornell. And regardless of whether or not youre a fan of Vicky’s, I’m pretty sure She goes by Silver.. or Cornell Silver

    I actually hope both that this song doesn’t get nominated for an Oscar and doesn’t win the Grammy.

    The reason being is that I don’t want to see Vicky up on the stage accepting another award for Chris. It will just make my sadness about Chris even worse.

    I just want Vicky to both keep quiet and go away.

    • HippieChic61

      So you cast negitivity on Chris’s project, a project he loved being a part of and was proud of just to satisfy your hatred toward Vicky! Wow, just wow!

      • Trovoid

        He’s dead so I don’t think it matters if he wins the award now. Awards mean nothing anyway. Most of us don’t want Vicky involved with Chris’ legacy. His best work was done before he met her. She has put herself in the spotlight way too often. I don’t understand why she can’t go away and grieve in private. She is going to end up like Linda Ramone, a famous widow who makes constant appearances everywhere. Not trying to start a fight with a you my flower child 🙂 I know we don’t know everything about Vicky’s life and it’s bad to make assumptions. It is fair for us to judge her behavior in the spotlight however. It speaks volumes about her.

        • HippieChic61

          We can agree to disagee 🙂
          I feel like shes being sought out for statements and articles, rather than “putting herself in the spotlight “.

          • Trovoid

            I can respect that viewpoint. I’m sure that’s at least part of it. She does use social media way too much but I suppose that’s not something I can tell someone else not to do. Thanks for staying civil!

          • HippieChic61

            Its all good, we dont have to agree to have a conversation. But it is rare on here! lol If you dont agree with some people they flip out and cant see anything other than their view.
