Performs moving rendition of Hallelujah for dad and Linkin Park

MERE months after her dad and Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell committed suicide and weeks after their good family friend and Linkin Park singer Chester Bennington died the same way, 12-year-old Toni Cornell has taken to the stage to perform an emotional tribute for the two talented singers — and it’ll leave you bawling.

The spitting image of her late dad, Toni proved she not only inherited Chris’ looks, she also inherited his incredible voice.

The musical guest for Friday’s Good Morning America was supposed to be Linkin Park however, in the wake of Bennington’s death, the band decided not to perform.

Instead Toni and Ryan Tedder’s band One Republic took to the stage and performed Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah, leaving the entire crowd bawling.

“It’s an honour to perform this for my dad and Chester and sing for them,” Toni told the show’s host Michael Strahan.

The emotional tribute for the two late singers drew tears from hundreds in the crowd and even one of the band’s violinists, but Toni stayed strong throughout the performance as photos of her dad and Chester flashed behind them.

While the song Hallelujah is a common choice in a time of mourning, Toni’s reason for performing the popular song wasn’t a random one.

At the funeral of her father in late May, Bennington performed Hallelujah for his close friend

Chris Cornell after his suicide on May 18. Two months later, on July 22, the Linkin Park singer died the same way.
