Chris Cornell’s voice was considered to be one of the greatest and most unique in music history, and he was able to stretch it across a wide variety of genres.
Back in 2015, Chris took to the airwaves for Sirius XM Radio, for an exclusive live show on the popular Lithium station, which plays a lot of 90’s-00’s rock. Cornell took to the airwaves and performed an acoustic set which consisted of original songs and covers. One highlight of the show was his cover of Prince’s “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Chris’ voice gives a whole new vibe of the song, and it is guaranteed to give you chills. Following Prince’s passing, Chris laid this song down onto a studio version, which was raw and emotional. Chris adds some elements into this song, like a cello, which adds to the emotion even more.
Check out the phenomenal cover down below. We miss Prince and Cornell very much, and hope they’re both up in heaven jamming away!
