WATCH: Daughter of late Soundgarden singer moves crowd to tears

Less than three months after losing her father, the 12-year-old daughter of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell has stoically paid tribute to him.

Toni Cornell bravely stood before thousands of fans in New York City’s Central Park on Friday as part of the Good Morning America Summer Concert Series.

She joined band OneRepublic to perform Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah.


Adding to the emotion, fans of Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington (main picture) were also there, as the band was scheduled to perform in that slot.

However, in a tragic twist, Bennington also took his own life last month, on what would’ve been Cornell’s 53rd birthday.

OneRepublic put their nationwide tour on hold to play in place of Linkin Park.
