The music world has been devastated since Chris Cornell tragically took his own life after a concert in Detroit, Michigan last week. There have been tons of powerful tributes dedicated to the memory of the Soundgarden and Audioslave frontman in the wake of this heartbreaking news, but I think I’ve found my favorite one yet.
The aptly named Choir! Choir! Choir! is a choir from Toronto, Canada, and they honored Cornell with a spectacular cover of “Black Hole Sun.” The massive group of 225 vocalists came together for a beautiful rendition of the 1994 smash hit.
Watch the cover in the video below.
Goosebump City. I was getting flashbacks to Nouela’s “Black Hole Sun” cover from that badass Liam Neeson movie A Walk Among the Tombstones.
What an unreal performance. It’s amazing that Choir! Choir! Choir! was able to pull that off so seamlessly with so many moving parts.
Rest in peace, Chris.
