Chris Cornell's family has released a new PSA video vowing to continue raising awareness for the human rights causes their father was dedicated to set to the backdrop of his current Best Rock Performance GRAMMY-nominated song, “The Promise.”

Video: Chris Cornell Vows to 'Keep the Promise'

As part of his long career as a songwriter and performer, Cornell wrote and recorded the title song for “The Promise” (2017), the first feature film to highlight the story of the Armenian genocide. All proceeds from the film have gone toward human rights causes, including 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.

The PSA video follows the announcement of the creation of an endowed fund of more than $1 million to support student scholarships at UCLA School of Law. The Chris Cornell Scholarship honors Cornell’s commitment to justice, human rights and advocacy for those in need.
