Toni Cornell, the daughter of the late Chris Cornell has shared a duet on Fathers Day, that was recorded just months before his death on social media. The duet is a cover of Prince’s song Nothing Compares 2 U that was also performed by Sinead O’Connor.
Cornell’s widow Vicky added on twitter: “I’m so proud of my baby girl for having the courage to share this. July 19, last year she found it in her daddy’s studio files. They recorded it a few months before he died. You never know what life brings and how we live each day is what’s most important.”
Toni attached the following message to the duet:
Daddy, I love you and miss you so much. You were the best father anyone could ask for. Our relationship was so special, and you were always there for me. You gave me courage when I didn’t have any. You believed in me when I didn’t. I miss your love everyday. Recording this song with you was a special and amazing experience I wish I could repeat 100 times over and I know you would too. Happy Father’s Day daddy, nothing compares to you. – Toni
Chris Cornell also performed a cover of Nothing Compares 2 U in the Sirius XM Studios back in 2015 that is definitely worth a listen if you haven’t heard it yet.
