Vicky Cornell Announces Vigil For Anniversary Of Chris Cornell’s Passing

This Friday (May 18) will mark one year since the unexpected passing of Soundgarden frontman Chris Cornell, and his widow, Vicky Cornell, is inviting fans to honor his memory.

A special vigil will be taking place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery, where Chris is buried, on May 18 at 7 PM.   

In a statement, Vicky writes, “We want to open this up to you, our extended family, and invite you to join us on this day of prayer and remembrance to pay our respects together.  As we know there are millions of fans and not everyone can physically be there, we would be honored if you share posts and videos of how Chris’s music has touched you. We can feel your love no matter how far.  Light a candle, say a prayer, speak his name…”
