    Chris Cornell's widow is organising a vigil to mark one year since his death

    The Soundgarden star tragically took his own life in Detroit, Michigan on May 18, 2017 and his wife Vicky Cornell has organised a vigil in Los Angeles to mark a year since his passing


    The vigil will take place on May 18 at Los Angeles' Hollywood Forever cemetery.

    She shared in a statement: "It is with great emotion I reach out to all of you as the one year anniversary of my husband's passing approaches. Chris was loved, so much, by so many. The children and I are so grateful to you all for being by our sides throughout all of this. Your love has created a close-knit community, more like a family, to grieve with, to provide support, and to help us heal. We could not have gotten through the last 12 months without you.

    "We want to open this up to you, our extended family, and invite you to join us on this day of prayer and remembrance to pay our respects together," Vicky adds. "As we know, there are millions of fans and not everyone can physically be there. We would be honoured if you share posts and videos of how Chris' music has touched you. We can feel your love no matter how far. Light a candle, say a prayer, speak his name."

    Meanwhile, Vicky previously insisted Chris was the "furthest thing from a rock star junkie".

    She said: "My husband was the furthest thing from a rock star junkie. He just wasn't. He was the best husband, the greatest father. I lost my soulmate and the love of my life. He wanted to be there for his family, for his children. He loved his life ... he would never have ever left this world. I don't think that he could make any decisions because of the level of impairment."
