Keeping the promise
You know what one of the best remedies in the word is? Singing. Sing in your car, sing with friends, sing with a band, sing in the shower, sing alone in your room, sing at a concert, sing in your mind, sing at the top of your lungs.
That’s exactly what dedicated Chris Cornell fans from around the world are continuously doing in order to pay tribute to the voice of a generation, an artist for all time.
In need of this remedy myself, I recently scoured all corners of the digital globe and connected with some incredible people/artists who not only perform these stunning tributes, but also thank Cornell for his constant inspiration in their lives.
What matters most here, is not the video production or clarity, it’s the passion in which the song is delivered. Singing… from the heart. In a way, in compiling this, we all sang together. I hope you feel the same.
