Chris Cornell’s daughter Toni shares a personal homemade video on the occasion of her birthday

Chris Cornell’s daughter Toni has paid tribute to the late Soundgarden frontman on what would have been his 58th birthday.

Cornell died by suicide on May 18, 2017. He was 52 years old.

Yesterday (July 20), Toni Cornell – who is also a musician and singer – took to Instagram to share an intimate home video of herself and her father. In the clip, Toni is seen singing along to Rihanna’s chorus from Eminem’s 2010 single ‘Love the Way You Lie’ while Chris plays the song on acoustic guitar.

“Singing out loud is not the same as singing out loud,” Chris tells his daughter in the video. “You don’t have to sing it loud. You can sing it softly.” Later, he nods in encouragement, telling young Toni, “That was great.”

In the post’s caption, Toni referenced covering one of her father’s favorite songs: “‘Nothing Compares 2 U’ is not just a song,” she wrote. “What I really think about is when I look back and see our lives and memories together.

“You always played music for us, sang with us, danced with us.”

The message continued: “Losing you is one of the hardest things we’ve ever had to go through. They say it gets easier with time, but as the days and years go by , and since we last saw you again, we miss you even more.

“Today, on your birthday, I think many are joining me saying that we miss you more! The world would not be the same without you, and it will not be the same without you. You wrote the the soundtrack not only to our lives, but to millions of people, and we will listen to it forever.”

Toni added: “We feel you with us, because it is your words, your love and all the memories that shaped our world, made us and are forever embedded in the making of our souls. On your birthday and every other day, we celebrate our lives with you and remember how lucky we were to have you with us.

“Happy birthday to the greatest father and the greatest human being, whose life continues to leave an incredible mark on everyone he touches.”

In May, Soundgarden, Rage Against The Machine and Vicky Cornell, the late wife, were among those who paid tribute to the singer on the fifth anniversary of his death.

“Chris, we have lost you for five years, there is love, there is peace, there is eternity. Love and peace to the brothers and sisters of Soundgarden,” the band wrote.
