Chris Cornell’s ‘I Will Always Love You’ Cover Is Unexpected, Breathtaking

By 02.20.12

I haven’t been actively tracking Whitney Houston tributes, but I’m going to go out on a limb and tag Chris Cornell’s cover of “I Will Always Love You” from a San Francisco Obama 2012 fundraiser this past Thursday night as the most surprising. It may also be the most touching. For me anyway. “Superunknown” was pretty much the soundtrack to a year of my teenage life.

Not only is the performance incredibly unique, but Cornell goes into it with a simple, “I just learned this, so when I mess it up just forgive me.” No flash, no drama, no self-indulgence, just a simple and honest tribute. Bravo sir.
