Chris Cornell’s Family And Fans Emotionally Sing “Like a Stone” At Grave


As the Chris Cornell one year death anniversary vigil came to a close at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Friday, fans sang “Like a Stone,” “I Am The Highway,” and “Hallelujah” in honor of Cornell, and his widow Vicky and children Lily, Toni, and Christopher joined in.

A fan named Brigette tweeted, “Fans sing to ‘Like a Stone’ through tears, accompanied acoustic guitar, as the vigil ceremony continues @hwdforever for #ChrisCornell. Cornell’s widow @vickycornell and their children joined fans and sang after prayer ceremony. #chriscornellforever.”

The late Chester Bennington sang “Hallelujah” at Chris Cornell’s funeral last year. Cornell’s good friend Jeff Buckley recorded the most famous version of the song in 1994 on Grace.

Vicky Cornell had said about the event, “All of us who loved Chris know how special he was and how much he gave to all of us. Your love for him, your sympathy and support for us has carried us through these 12 months. We welcome all to join us in remembrance. (Swipe right for info) As we know there are millions of fans and not everyone can physically be there, we would be honored if you share posts and videos of how Chris’ music has touched you. We can feel your love no matter how far. Light a candle, say a prayer, speak his name….. #chriscornellforever #noonesingslikeyouanymore #chriscornell.”
