Toni Cornell did an honest singing of the song, singing solo using an acoustic guitar. As he stays for the first two minutes of the hymn, you get a taste of the 17 -year -old’s vocal chops – his father clearly passed on his talent.
“Hallelujah” has long been an important song for the Cornell family. Chester Bennington at Linkin Park performed the song at Chris Cornell’s funeral in May 2017, and three months later, Toni covered the song One Republic on Good morning America in honor of his father and Bennington, who died in July.
Last month, Toni Cornell performed another favorite of her father, Prince “Nothing Compares to 2 U,” on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. Before that, he shared the covers at Pearl Jam’s “Itom” and Temple of the Dog “Hunger Strike.”
