Special Vigil Held To Mark Anniversary Of Chris Cornell's Death

David Layde By David Layde - May 16, 2018

The widow of late Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell revealed plans for a special vigil at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Friday, May 18th to mark the first anniversary of the legendary frontman's death.

Vicky Cornell made the following statement about plans for the vigil: 'It is with great emotion I reach out to all of you as the one year anniversary of my husband's passing approaches'.

Vicky spoke of the need for people around the world to join in remembering Chris by sharing posts and videos online: "Chris was loved, so much, by so many. The children and I are so grateful to you all for being by our sides throughout all of this. Your love has created a close-knit community, more like a family, to grieve with, to provide support, and to help us heal. We could not have gotten through these last 12 months without you."

"As we know, there are millions of fans and not everyone can physically be there. We would be honoured if you share posts and videos of how Chris's music has touched you. We can feel your love no matter how far."

'Light a candle, say a prayer, speak his name… Loud Love.'
