It’s been roughly 2 weeks since Chester Bennington, the Linkin Park singer took his own life. His death is mourned all over the world and has sparked way too many tributes from the entertainment industry.

And just quite recently at a concert in Metlife Stadium, New Jersey, Chris Martin the Coldplay frontman performed the very moving cover of ‘Crawling’ to show his love and respect to the late artist.

From time to time, we like to do a cover song. We’re gonna do one right now – I hope it’s OK. It may not sound that great, but it’s meant in good faith. This is for anybody who’s missing somebody, and this is for our whole community of musicians.” – he said in an interview.

 Martin needed a drink of water at the beginning, so he started over out of respect for Bennington. “I know this is probably going to end up on YouTube, so I’ve gotta get it right, and I want to do it respectfully,” he said.
 His version of “Crawling” definitely sounded more like Coldplay than Linkin Park, but it was touching, moving, and mournful, and definitely showed the respect he intended toward the late singer. Plus, the simple piano accompaniment helped highlight Bennington’s lyrics, and the pain they reflected. Bennington’s bandmate, Mike Shinoda, wrote on Instagram the cover “sounded beautiful.”
