Chris Cornell's Kids Accept His Grammy Award

Chris Cornell's children took to the stage at the Grammys on Sunday to accept an award on behalf of their dad.

The Soundgarden frontman, who took his own life in May 2017, was honoured with the accolade of Best Rock Performance for 'When Bad Does Good', which was released as part of a posthumous compilation of previously unheard music.

14-year-old Toni and 13-year-old Christopher paid a touching tribute to their dad when collecting the trophy.

"His voice was his vision and his music was his peace. This is for you daddy, we love you so much," Toni said.

While Christopher added: "I never thought we'd be standing here without my dad, and I'm sure he would be proud and honoured. He was known for many things. He was a rock icon, the godfather of grunge and the creator of a movement whose contribution to music history made a lasting impact across genres and generations.

"He was also one of the greatest poets of his time, whose soaring, unforgettable vocals made him the voice of a generation. While he touched the hearts of millions, the most important thing he was known for to us is for being the greatest father."

The teenagers were joined on the red carpet at the Los Angeles' Staples Centre by their mother, Vicky Karayiannis, and Toni donned a shirt emblazoned with her father's likeness for the occasion.
