Cherie Currie, Brie Darling Cover Soundgarden’s ‘Black Hole Sun’
“His artistry shone in everything he touched. He loved people more than he loved himself. There will never be another Chris Cornell,” former Runaways singer Currie said in a statement.
Darling added: “Immediately, I knew the song I would like us to do, my favorite… ‘Black Hole Sun’! I felt Cherie’s and my voices would work well on his beautiful and haunting melody. I love her and my different sounds and styles that work so well together. What a gift and inspiration, Chris’ talent was truly special.”
Proceeds from the “Black Hole Sun” single — and those from Blue Élan’s upcoming We Are the Highway covers project — will benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which “helps children who are facing homelessness, poverty, abuse and neglect worldwide.”
