The two late singers were close friends, and Bennington was the godfather to Chris Cornell's 11-year-old son, Chris.

Cornell hanged himself in May. Bennington hanged himself on what would have been his 53rd birthday last month. Both deaths were ruled suicides. (Read more here)

Toni Cornell said in an interview: "It's an honour to perform this for my dad and Chester and to sing for them."
