Back in 2015, rock legend Chris Cornell — who passed away in 2017 — stopped by SiriusXM Studios to deliver an unforgettable cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U,” an enduring song about loss made famous by Sinéad O’Connor in 1990. With his iconic voice and dynamic showmanship, Cornell’s rendition is a fan favorite, has racked up over 123 million views on SiriusXM’s YouTube channel, and was released as an official studio cover on his 2020 posthumous compilation, No One Sings Like You Anymore, Vol. 1.

This week, Cornell’s daughter, Toni, appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden to pay tribute to her late father with a moving rendition of “Nothing Compares 2 U” — and clearly the 17-year-old inherited her dad’s magnificent vocals.
