Hi, I’m Toni Cornell,” she says at the beginning of her performance of the Temple Of The Dog classic. I’m sitting in my dad’s studio during this crazy time. I’m gonna sing one of my favourite songs for you guys. I love you, daddy, and I hope I do this some justice.” 

And this isn’t the first time Toni has done her bit for charity; in fact, in March, she donated $20,000 from the proceeds of her and Chris’ stunning cover of Prince and Sinead O’Connor’s Nothing Compares 2 U to the International Rescue Committee.
