Previously unseen footage of the late Chris Cornell is featured in a new video released to celebrate his daughter Toni‘s 17th birthday.

The video, which was posted to Cornell’s Instagram, shows the father-daughter pair playing music together over the years, including a particularly moving clip of Chris strumming “You Are My Sunshine” on an acoustic guitar while an infant Toni hangs on its neck.

Vicky Cornell, Chris’ widow and Toni’s mother, also posted a video of her own, set to her daughter’s version of the Prince-written, Sinead O’Conner-performed classic “Nothing Compares 2 U.”

Last year, the Cornell family released No One Sings Like You Anymore, a compilation of covers Chris had recorded before his death in 2017. It marks his final, fully completed studio album.
