Toni Cornell, the daughter of the late Chris Cornell, delivered a beautiful cover paying tribute to the music scene her father was so instrumental in building.
This isn’t the first time Toni has put her vocal talents on display as she covered one of her father’s biggest hits back in April. Cornell was performing in a livestream event for COVID-19 relief and performed a rendition of Temple Of The Dog’s “Hunger Strike.”
In September, Toni shared her first original song, which was produced by her father. “Far Away Places” is a ballad she wrote when she was 12 and recorded it alongside her dad in February, 2017.
Proceeds from the song’s sales went to the New York Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Children.
As with many events, Lollapalooza was forced to call off this year’s gathering due to the pandemic.

The Man, Yungblud, and many more.
The fest is sharing classic archived performances from artists above as well as select new recordings.
Additionally, Lolla2020 will feature conversations in between sets of music. Former First Lady Michelle Obama, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot, Lollapalooza founder Perry Farrell & Etty Farrell, Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins, Chicago Bulls star Zach Lavine, Common, Lars Ulrich and more are all scheduled to appear.
