Talent runs in the Cobain family.  

 

Frances Bean Cobain, the daughter of Courtney Love and the late Kurt Cobain, took to social media on Wednesday to sing her first original song in honor of her father on the 24th anniversary of his death. 

 

Taking a guitar, Frances, who recently shared that she is two years sober, strummed along while belting out the loving tune. 

"I think I saw you when I was small/ I think I found you/ A penny for your good thoughts," she sings in the Instagram video. "I think I found you/ Jesus hangs in your place on the cross/ All these hinges become unscrewed / Heaven knows it was a cage on earth."

 

In the caption, the 25-year-old  wrote, "there are so many memorable moments in this clip...Im SUPER restless because I cant play guitar with long nails so Im just sitting in my room alone singing to mah self." 

 

Sadly, Frances deleted it soon after.

I still see stuff, descriptions of rock stars in some magazine 'Sting, the environmental guy,' and 'Kurt Cobain, the whiny, complaining, neurotic, bitchy guy who hates everything, hates rock stardom, hates his life.' And I've never been happier in my life. Especially within the last week, because the shows have been going so well except for tonight. I'm a much happier guy than a lot of people think I am.

Kurt, who was the frontman for Nirvana, died by suicide 24 years ago on April 5, 1994, just two years after marrying Love. She too took to social media to honor her late husband, writing, "the universe always rips open on this day... those ocean blue eyes, we miss you." 

 

Along with the heartwrenching caption, Love shared a throwback photo of Kurt holding an infant Frances.
