Vigil To Mark The Passing Of Chris Cornell Cornell To Take Place This Weekend

A public vigil will be held this weekend to mark the one year anniversary of the death of Chris Cornell, according to his wife. The event will be held on May 18th in Los Angeles.
“It is with great emotion I reach out to all of you as the one year anniversary of my husband’s passing approaches. Chris was loved, so much, by so many. The children and I are so grateful to you all for being by our sides throughout all of this. Your love has created a close-knit community; more like a family; to grieve with, to provide support, and to help us heal. We could not have gotten through these last twelve months without you.”

The public vigil will take place at the Hollywood Forever Cemetery on Friday at 7 p.m. PT.

“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,” she continued. “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 nameā€¦ Loud Love.”
