Linkin Park's Mike Shinoda Debuts New Song In Honour Of Chester Bennington

The Linkin Park and Friends Celebrate Life in Honor of Chester Bennington memorial concert marked the first time the members of the band had stepped onstage together since the tragic passing of Bennington on July 20 when he took his own life.

Though the show featured talent from bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Blink-182, Korn and Alanis Morissette, Linkin Park had a really special moment lined up. Shinoda told the crowd.

Later, the chorus saw Shinoda sing: "Was I looking for an answer when there never really was one?".

Some of the lyrics included: "There's an emptiness tonight/ A hole that wasn't there before/ And I keep reaching for the light/ But I can't find it anymore".

Talinda said: 'He was incredibly proud of the music done through relief, he knew it saved lives.

"Saving lives is exactly what we plan to do in Chester's memory", Bennington said in a speech introducing her partnership with "Give an Hour" and Change Direction, a nonprofit dedicated to changing the conversation and culture around mental health. "It is my mission to make it easier to access mental health resources".

26p from each issue sold in the United Kingdom and online through Newsstand.co.uk goes straight to the One More Light fund, established in Chester's memory by Music For Relief, the charity he co-founded.
