Before he passed away, Chris Cornell was deeply involved with a campaign called Keep The Promise, providing support to refugees and children in need. Since his passing, several celebrities have stepped in to further his work, support the mission and spread the word.


Tom Hanks, Jennifer Lopez, Serj Tankian of System of a Down, George Clooney, Josh Brolin and several others appear in a new video for the campaign about refugee awareness. Watch from start to finish - Cornell speaks about #KeepthePromise at the end of the video.



Also, proceeds from Cornell's single "The Promise" off the movie soundrack go to refugees and children in need. The campaign was launched this past spring by the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation. The music video for the song was released just this week.
