Chris Cornell isn't the only musician in his family. 

During his solo show at New York's Beacon Theatre on Monday night, the Soundgarden frontman was joined onstage by his 11-year-old daughter Toni for an acoustic cover of Bob Marley's "Redemption Song." As soon as she sang the first line, it wasn't hard to realize that Toni definitely takes after her rockstar father. 

Before they began the duet, Cornell introduced his daughter by telling the crowd, "A few years back, my daughter wanted to do a song at school. 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."

The obviously proud dad added, “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.”
