No one may sing like Chris Cornell anymore, but the late Soundgarden frontman’s children seem to be forging their own musical path.

In a recent Instagram post, Cornell’s widow Vicky Cornell shared a photo of their children, Toni and Christopher, playing music together.

“Sneaked a pic,” Vicky wrote in the caption. “My babies all grown up working on songs together.”

Last month, Toni made a guest appearance on The Tonight Show during which she performed a cover of “Nothing Compares 2 U.” Her father’s version of the Prince-penned Sinéad O’Connor classic is posthumously nominated for Best Rock Performance at this year’s Grammys.

Chris also had a daughter named Lily with his first wife, Susan Silver. Lily hosts an ongoing mental health series called Mind Wide Open.

In related news, the YouTube channel of Chris’ band Audioslave recently unearthed a batch of footage from a 2003 performance for AOL. The sessions featured performances of songs including “Cochise,” “Like a Stone” and “I Am the Highway.”
