OneRepublic Will Tribute Chester Bennington & Chris Cornell On August 4 “Good Morning America”

Linkin Park was originally set to perform on the August 4 “Good Morning America.”

The August 4 “GMA” will instead feature a tribute performance by OneRepublic. The Ryan Tedder-fronted band will pay tribute to Bennington as well as the late Chris Cornell during the “Summer Concert Series” performance.
