Chris Cornell's teen daughter paid tribute to the late rocker on Father's Day with a duet of them singing a Prince hit.

Toni Cornell, 13, shared a video featuring her and father singing "Nothing Compares 2 U" which was made famous after Sin-ad O'Connor covered it.

She also penned a note

The teen posted it on Cornell's YouTube page with a note that read "I love you and miss you so much. You were the best father anyone could ask for."

"Our relationship was so special, and you were always there for me. You gave me courage when I didn't have any," she wrote. "You believed in me when I didn't. I miss your love everyday."

Cornell ended the note writing "Recording this song with you was a special and amazing experience I wish I could repeat 100 times over and I know you would too. Happy Father's Day daddy, nothing compares to you."

Chris Cornell, lead singer of Soundgarden and Audioslave, died in May 2017 after a performance in Detroit. The coroner ruled his death suicide by hanging.

Toni Cornell honored her father and Bennington in August 2017 with a performance of Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah," alongside One Republic on "Good Morning America."

She also penned a note to the rocker Father's Day 2017 which was posted on Cornell's official Facebook page.

In it she talked of his love of another Prince song, "The Beautiful Ones."

The younger Cornell said her father introduced her to the song after they watched "Purple Rain" together.

"'This song is so special it doesn't even belong in a genre. When I was in my twenties, I saw this in the theatre and some guy started cracking up laughing at this scene and song. It got me really mad,' you said," she wrote. "I fell in love with the song too and listened to it on repeat."
