Although, the GRAMMY Award was not aired on the televised broadcast of the 61st Annual GRAMMYS, the late Chris Cornell won a posthumous GRAMMY Award for ‘Best Rock Performance.’ The GRAMMY Award is for Cornell’s song “When Bad Does Good” from his self-titled compilation.
Accepting the GRAMMY Award on Cornell’s behalf was Cornell’s children Christopher and Toni and wow we were not prepared for the emotion-filled speech that they would make.
“He was a rock icon, the godfather of grunge, and the creator of a movement whose contributions to music history made a lasting impact across all genres and generations. He was also one of the greatest poets of his time whose voice and soaring, unforgettable vocals made him the voice of a generation. While he touched the hearts of millions, the most important thing he was known for to us is for being the greatest father and our hero” said Christopher while Toni added, “His voice was his vision and his music was his peace.” Their speeches can be heard on the below video.
