Chris Cornell's children vow to #KeepthePromise in new PSA

posted : January, 11th by Music News From ABC News Radio - Classic Rock

ABC/Randy HolmesChris Cornell's family has released a new video in continued support of the late Soundgarden frontman's #KeepthePromise human rights campaign.

The clip is actually an extended version of the star-studded video that premiered over the summer, except this one features Cornell's three children: Toni, Lily and Christopher.

"From basic human rights to women's rights, my dad believed that if we each vow to keep one promise, we could work to make the world a better place," Toni says in the video.

The two-minute clip also features a varoety of stars, including Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John, Soundgraden/Pearl Jam drummer Matt Cameron, Tom Morello, System of a Down's Serj Tankian, Tom Hanks, George Clooney, Christian Bale, Josh Brolin, Ryan Gosling, Jennifer Lopez, Mandy Patinkin, Jimmy Fallon, Snoop Dogg, Adam Levine and Barbra Streisand, vowing to "keep the promise."

The campaign stems from Cornell's song "The Promise," which he recorded for the 2017 film of the same name about the Armenian genocide. The track was the final song released before his death last May, and is up for Best Rock Performance at the 2018 Grammys on January 28. It's also eligible for an Oscar nomination.
