The group Linkin Park released a video of Chester Bennington singing in a "Carpool Karaoke" with actor Ken Jeong in July. According to ENews, almost three months after the lead singer died, the group asked his family if they could put the video online. Chester's wife also shared the video on Instagram to share the happy days of her husband.

On the Official Facebook Page of the Linkin Park band, the video, which is also available on Apple Music started with a message that says, "With the blessing of Chester's family and his bandmates, we share this episode, and dedicate it to the memory of Chester." Bennington was accompanied by his bandmates' Mike Shinoda and Joe Hahn.

The "Carpool Karaoke" happened six days before Chester committed suicide. Ironically, the singer said during the Carpool that it was probably the greatest day of his life. The Carpool Karaoke featured songs from Red Hot Chilli Pepper's "Under the Bridge," Outkast's "Hey Yah!" and two songs from the band entitled "Numb" and "In the End."

James Corden reaches out to the family

James Corden, executive producer of "Carpool Karaoke" said to the Associated Press that they had been in contact with Chester's family about the manner in which they wanted to deal with the video.

"We consider it to be not our decision to make. We will navigate as delicately as possible and I'm just an ear to whatever wishes they would want because I don't think there's any other way we could deal with it, really," said Corden.

On July 20 this year, Chester Bennington, 41, was found dead in a private home in Palos Verdes in Los Angeles. His autopsy revealed he committed suicide by hanging. He is survived by his wife Talinda Ann Bentley and their three children, Lila, Tyler Lee, and Lily.

Chester Bennington's health through the years

Chester had been suffering from deteriorating health since 2003. During that year, the singer suffered extreme abdominal pain that eventually forced him to undergo surgery. In 2007, he broke a wrist trying to jump from a platform during a concert in Melbourne. Other injuries include a sprained ankle and an injured shoulder that both led to the cancellation of scheduled concerts.

He also suffered from depression.

Mike Shinoda broke the news of his death via Twitter post saying, "Shocked and heartbroken, but it's true. An official statement will come out as soon as we have one." The band canceled their tour in North America after Bennington's death. He was laid to rest at the South Coast Botanical Garden in Palos Verdes Estates, California.
