It’s been one week since the world received the horrifying news regarding Chester Bennington’s death.  The frontman for the popular band Linkin Park took his own life last Thursday leaving family, friends, and fans in complete and total shock.

One thing is for sure, Bennington’s legacy will live on through the music of Linkin Park which helped define a generation and impacted so many lives along the way.  Soon, fans may get to see one of the last music projects Bennington worked on just prior to his death.

Linkin Park along with actor Ken Jeong, filmed an episode of Carpool Karaoke: The Series less than a week prior to Bennington’s death.  The band had shared a photo from the set of themselves along with Jeong with the caption, “Fun day with @kenjeong @CarpoolKaraoke @AppleMusic – stay tuned.”

Jeong had also tweeted in response, effectively adding himself as an additional member of the band by giving them an appropriate name change, “Lin-Ken Park”

The filming of the episode was, no doubt, filled with fun and laughter, a thought which hopefully can help grieving fans remember one of their favorite band during some happier times.  There is no word yet on when or if the Carpool Karaoke episode will be released.

Upon learning of Bennington’s death, Jeong offered his condolences and shared in the shock we are all still experiencing:

Over the past several days, Linkin Park has canceled their remaining tour and has released an emotional letter to their friend as well as launching a website in an effort to pay tribute to their late band member while also offering support and resources to those who may be struggling with thoughts of suicide.

In case you or someone you know needs support, here are some resources which can help:
