LOS ANGELES (AP) — The late Chris Cornell's daughter called her father's posthumous Grammy Award on Sunday a "bittersweet" moment for the family.

Cornell's daughter, Toni, and son, Christopher, accepted their father's trophy for best rock performance for his song "When Bad Does Good."

The song was released as part of a posthumous album of unreleased music that Cornell's estate put out last year.

The musician died at the age 52 in 2017.

Toni Cornell held the award while her brother spoke at the Grammys pre-telecast ceremony, telling the audience "His voice was his vision and his music was his peace." She said backstage that she still misses her father "so much."
