VIDEO: Chris Cornell and daughter perform Bob Marley classic in New York

Chris Cornell was joined by his 11-year old daughter Toni for a cover of the Bob Marley classic, “Redemption Song”, at the Beacon Theatre in New York on Monday.

On the road playing acoustic dates across North America in support of his fourth solo album, “Higher Truth”, Cornell welcomed his daughter to the stage.

“A few years back, my daughter wanted to do a song at school,” said Cornell. “She said it’s called the Music for Lunch Bunch and she makes it sound like she sits in front of her classmates and they do a song every once in a while. So I went and got a guitar tuned for her in the right key and we went to see her do it and it was actually like an assembly in front of the entire school.”

“I was as nervous as I’ve ever been, for instance like opening for Metallica in front of 45,000 people. I was more nervous that day, but she sang it beautifully.”

The follow-up to 2009’s “Scream”, “Higher Truth” was recorded earlier this year in Seattle with producer Brendan O’Brien.

The singer recently revealed that Soundgarden have begun work on the follow-up to 2012’s “King Animal.”

"We're already working on new material for an album," Cornell told Rolling Stone. "And then I've got several other irons in the fire and things going that I won't mention now. There's a lot of things coming in addition to ‘Higher Truth’, as well as a new Soundgarden album."
