“Hi, I’m Toni Cornell, sitting in my dad’s studio during this crazy time. I’m gonna sing one of my favorite songs for you guys. I love you daddy and I hope I do this some justice. This event is about discovery for young artists who are really going to struggle in this environment as much as it is about the established artists.

“We want to support the music community and part of that means working with amazing distribution partners like Facebook’s Oculus Venues, Complex Media, and our presenting partner, TikTok, to reach as many music fans globally as possible and to raise funds for MusiCares.”
