The Soundgarden and Audioslave singer died at age 52.
Blessed with the voice of an angel, it's easy to forget Chris Cornell had the heart of one as well.
On May 17, 2017, the singer known for his work with bands like Soundgarden and Audioslave died a "sudden and unexpected" death following a Detroit concert. Cornell's death is being reported as an apparent suicide, leaving behind his three children and wife, Vicky.
As a rock star, he influenced the lives of millions with his art. Lesser known, however, is the life-changing work he did for others offstage.
