Proceeds to benefit International Rescue Committee
In honor of Father's Day, Toni Cornell released a new cover of Prince's "Nothing Compares to U" that she recorded with her father, Chris Cornell, before his untimely death last May. On the eve of World Refugee Day (June 20), Toni pledges to donate her proceeds from the song to the International Rescue Committee, just as Chris did with the proceeds from "The Promise," his final music video.
The song is now available at all streaming services and digital retailers, including:
"My father taught me to be a voice for others who don't have one," Toni said of her charitable contributions. "Especially with the tragic events happening today, where children are being separated from their parents at the border, it is not OK. Please help us keep the promise (on behalf of the world's most vulnerable children) for my father."
Toni and her family toured refugee camps in Greece in April 2017 with the International Rescue Committee, and there her parents decided The Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation would focus its efforts on child refugees.
The International Rescue Committee responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises, helping to restore health, safety, education, economic wellbeing, and power to people devastated by conflict and disaster.
