The late Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell had joined The Police frontman Sting five years back. It was in a private fundraising event and it was done to raise money for EB research. The pair performed together at the Epidermolysis Bullosa Medical Research Foundation’s ROCK4EB! event in Malibu. Introduced by Brad Pitt, they played a few songs including the Police’s ‘Every Breath You Take,’ Soundgarden’s ‘Black Hole Sun,’ and Audioslave’s ‘Like A Stone.’ Previously it was noted how Chris Cornell Jr. was spotted recording with a big name.

The lead single “Can’t Change Me” was nominated for a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance at the 2000 Grammy Awards. On August 14, 2015, the album was re-released on CD and vinyl with the title Euphoria Mourning, with Cornell stating in the press release that he had originally intended the album to be called that.
Chris Cornell’s kids start to write songs together
Kids of Cornell- Toni and Christopher have started writing music together. Over the weekend, the late rockstar’s wife Vicky shared a sweet picture on Instagram of her kids Toni and Christopher hard at work in the studio.
“Sneaked a pic – my babies all grown up working on songs together” she captioned the post.
Toni has already become quite famous for her singing skills. In 2018, she shared a cover of Prince and Sinead O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” which she recorded with her dad when she was 12 years old. Last month, she performed the song on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon.
Toni and Chris’ “Nothing Compares 2 U” is up for a Grammy in the Best Rock Performance category, and her dad’s first posthumous album No One Sings Like You Anymore Vol. 1 is nominated for Best Rock Album. The award show was supposed to air at the end of the month but has been delayed due to the recent virus surge. Christopher also liked to play music with his dad. In November, Vicky shared an adorable throwback photo of the duo jamming out on guitars when Christopher was just nine years old.
