Afterward, Chris released a song for this movie with the same name two months before his death, and he wanted to be the voice for the people who suffered from hatred and injustice. The song named ‘The Promise’ by Chris was also nominated for Grammy Award in the Best Rock Performance category.
In the caption, Vicky Cornell mentioned how much this song mattered to Chris and said that he put his heart and soul into this song to give people hope in the tough times. In this way, she showed how a kind-hearted person Chris is.

“Please read and share. This song, project, and mission were personally important to Chris. He put his heart and soul into it to give people more hope given the hatred and injustices in the world today. It continues to be critically important to our family to fulfill his vision to #keepthepromise to #neverforget.

Leaders in the human rights & Armenian advocacy communities successfully used the film as a tool to fortify their ongoing efforts to secure Armenian Genocide recognition in Congress.
