Rasputin 93 Posted June 29, 2013 Share Posted June 29, 2013 (edited) "Linkin Park's Chester Bennington and Phoenix, as well as members of the Stone Temple Pilots band performed at a June 28, 2013, ribbon cutting at Primary Children's Medical Center. Three years ago Friday, 17-year-old Sophie Barton died of a heart attack while hiking with friends in Summit County. She was a talented singer who often performed for patients at Primary Children’s Medical Center. A musical therapy room, named in honor of Sophie, opened on Friday. It’s the first of its kind in any children’s hospital in the country. Steve Young and wife Barbara, who raised funds for the room, and musician Chester Bennington, from the Stone Temple Pilots and Linkin Park, were among the celebrities at the opening. Sophie’s family are close friends with Steve and Barbara Young, and together they came up with a plan to honor Sophie’s memory and help heal sick kids. Through their Forever Young Foundation, Steve and Barbara met Chester Bennington, singer for the rock bands Linkin Park and Stone Temple Pilots. When they asked Bennington to be part of the opening of Sophie’s Place, he and the Stone Temple Pilots jumped at the chance. “To see it happen today and the opening of the first Sophie’s Place is really an honor and a privilege to be a part of,” Bennington said. “So thanks for having us and we’re going to play some music.”" Chester and Phoenix performed 'The Messenger' and Stone Temple Pilots (with Chester) performed 'Pretty Penny' and 'Big Empty'. Alternate video of 'The Messenger'. Interviews about the event and snippets of 'Pretty Penny and 'Big Empty' by Stone Temple Pilots can be seen here.
