Chris Cornell’s daughter shares her birthday with a home video of her Eminem cover

Chris Cornell’s daughter celebrated his 58th birthday by sharing a sweet old home video on social media.

The late musician, who committed suicide in 2017 at the age of 52, performs a cover of Eminem and Rihanna’s “Love the Way You Lie” in the throwback video daughter Toni, 17, shared on Instagram on Wednesday. Deviating from the grunge icon’s usual song style, the cover also features Cornell’s son Christopher, a miniature Eminem enthusiast, now 16. In the caption, Toni said her father “always played music for us, sang with us, with us.” danced. “

“Losing you was one of the hardest things we’ve had to go through,” she wrote. “They say it gets easier with time, but with the days and years and since we last saw you, we miss you even more.”

“Today on your birthday,” she continued, “I think so many join me in saying we miss you the MOST!!! The world wouldn’t be the same without you and will never be the same if you’re gone.”

“You wrote the soundtrack not just for our lives, but for millions, and we will hear it forever. We feel you with us as your words, love and all the memories shaped our world, made us who we are and are forever ingrained in the very fabric of our souls.”

Earlier last year, Toni paid homage to her late father, who was popular for his work in rock bands Soundgarden, Audioslave and Temple of the Dog. She covered Temple of the Dog’s “Hunger Strike” to mark the track’s 30th anniversary.

“On your birthday and every other day we celebrate you and remember how lucky we were that you were ours. Happy Birthday to the greatest father and most incredible human being whose life continues to leave an incredible impact on everyone he touches.”
