Chris Cornell's teenage daughter Toni continues to use her prodigious musical talents to help others through charity.

The 15-year-old joined in on LiveXLive's fundraiser this past weekend for the MusiCares COVID-19 Relief Fund. After being introduced by Matt Pinfield, Toni performed the apropos Temple of the Dog classic "Hunger Strike" for the fundraiser to benefit musicians in need.

Video shared via Chris's official social media accounts shows Toni play the song and sing it via live stream from her dad's old home studio.

Toni's treatment of the song is heartrending and her voice is typically serene. You can watch a clip of it below. Donate to MusiCares or apply for aid here.

Toni latched on to music at a young age and joined her dad on stage during his solo acoustic shows on several different occasions.

The two collaborated on classics like Bob Marley's "Redemption Song" and the Prince-penned Sinéad O'Connor hit "Nothing Compares 2 U," the latter of which raised over $20,000 after being released for charity.

Toni famously joined OneRepublic on Good Morning America in 2017 to sing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" in remembrance of her dad and of his late-friend Chester Bennington.
