In a video entitled "Keep the Promise for Chris Cornell," artists including Elton John, Jennifer Lopez, Snoop Dogg and Barbra Streisand vow to continue Cornell's work to raise awareness for human rights. The video also features Cornell's three children, Lily, Christopher and Toni as well as the singer himself.
Bringing light to the various human crises in the world and putting his money where his mouth is, Cornell donated all proceeds from his Grammy® nominated song "The Promise" (from the movie of the same name starring Christian Bale and Oscar Isaac, who are also featured in the "Keep the Promise for Chris Cornell" video) to the International Rescue Committee, an organization whose mission is to respond to "the world’s worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future."
Additionally, Vicky Cornell, the wife of Chris Cornell, announced last month the creation of The Chris Cornell Scholarship at the UCLA School of Law and an endowment of more than $1million set to fund those scholarships.
