Chris Cornell - The Promise (Official Video)

posted by John Gatlin -

A host of celebrities from across the entertainment and sports worlds have joined Chris Cornell's family in a new video to launch a social media campaign to raise awareness for human rights in conjunction with the late Soundgarden singer's Grammy nominated song "The Promise.

The clip opens with Cornell's children - Toni, Lily, and Christopher - vowing to continue to honor their late father's support for human rights, with Toni saying, "From basic human rights to women's rights, my dad believed that if we each vow to keep one promise, we could make the world a better place."

Ozzy Osbourne, Elton John, Tom Hanks, George Clooney and Cornell's Audioslave bandmate Tom Morello are just some of the dozens of entertainers and personalities who can also be seen in the video pledging to continue the late rocker's work, which was partially inspired by his recording of the title song for 2017's "The Promise", the first feature film to highlight the story of the Armenian genocide.

All proceeds from the film have gone toward human rights causes, including the creation of the Promise Institute for Human Rights at UCLA School of Law. Cornell donated all of his proceeds from the song to the International Rescue Committee.
