Losing Chris Cornell of Soundgarden and Audioslave a month ago was a blow to the music community and to his millions of fans worldwide. His musical genius is well documented, and now we are learning more about his philanthropic life. Today, the official music video “The Promise” was released purposely timed with World Refugee Day. Focusing on the refugee crisis, actual footage from a variety of sources is highlighted throughout the video. Proceeds from the moving video are being donated to the International Rescue Committee.
Nothing can replace the powerhouse that was Chris Cornell. Luckily, we have deeply meaningful songs like “The Promise” to listen to and honor his life by supporting refugees.
