Chris Cornell Wins Grammy For Best Rock Performance

Watch: CHRIS CORNELL's Children Accept His Best Rock Performance GRAMMY

His contribution to music history made a lasting impact upon genres and generations.

He finished by describing Cornell as "the greatest father and our hero". He was known for many things.

Chris Cornell earned his first Grammy as a solo artist, winning best rock performance for his single When Bad Does Good, released after his death in May 2017.

"He was also one of the greatest poets of his time", he continued, "whose voice, soaring unforgettable vocals, made him the voice of a generation".

Toni jumped in and concluded the speech by saying "his voice was his vision and his music was his peace".

Chris Cornell's children have paid tribute to their late father at this year's Grammy Awards.

Since her father's death, Toni has honored the singer with a handful of special performances, including at the I Am the Highway: A Tribute to Chris Cornell event at The Forum in Los Angeles last month, where she took the stage with Ziggy Marley.

All proceeds were split between the research charity and the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation - which was founded by the singer and his wife, Vicky Cornell.
