She posted a version of Prince's song "Nothing Compares 2 U," made famous by Sinead O'conner. The version Toni posted is actually a duet between her and her late dad. Toni does most of the singing, while Chris accompanies her with backing vocals.  She included this message:

Daddy,

I love you and miss you so much. You were the best father anyone could ask for. Our relationship was so special, and you were always there for me. You gave me courage when I didn’t have any. You believed in me when I didn’t. I miss your love everyday. Recording this song with you was a special and amazing experience I wish I could repeat 100 times over and I know you would too. Happy Father’s Day daddy, nothing compares to you.

– Toni

Toni's mother chimed in on social media writing about how proud she was of her daughter's courage. We agree:

This is Toni's first public statement since appearing on Good Morning America to sing  “Hallelujah” in tribute to her father, and her late Godfather, Chester Bennington.
