A healthcare worker, named Cristina Settanni, recently helped talk a suicidal man down from a ledge by using lyrics from Linkin Park’s “One More Light.” The woman was driving along State Road 408 in Florida when she saw the man and decided to approach him. While sitting on the ledge with him, she recited the following lyrics: “Who cares if one more light goes out? / Well, I do.” The Orange County Sheriff’s Office posted a video report on the situation and it has since been shared by the band. You can watch that below. Sadly, Linkin Park frontman Chester Bennington took his own life in 2017.
A Life To Live, the band featuring former From Ashes To New members Chris Musser, Tim Donofrio, and Branden Kreider, have shared a moving cover of Linkin Park’s “One More Light” in honor of the late Chester Bennington. Musser commented:
“We are incredibly excited and proud to release this long overdue tribute to Chester. We wanted to take this opportunity to not only pay our respects to such an immeasurable influence on us personally and the rock world at large but also do our part to raise awareness for mental health. I have been open about my struggles with depression in the past, in hopes of letting others know it’s okay to talk about it because we are not in this alone. Any and all proceeds made from our rendition of “One More Light” will be going to charity in support of mental health awareness.”

“It has been incredibly emotional to work on this, and especially to watch it. I feel that by doing it, we not only faced some of our biggest fears, but it enabled us to use our talents to bring some light to people who need it. As we move forward to the Hollywood Bowl show and beyond, I think about the people who connect with the band, outside and inside our circle. This video is a gesture of good will to the people who want that connection.”
Mike Shinoda added:
“‘One More Light‘ was written with the intention of sending love to those who lost someone. We now find ourselves on the receiving end. In memorial events, art, videos, and images, fans all over the world have gravitated towards this song as their declaration of love and support for the band and the memory of our dear friend, Chester. We are so very grateful and can’t wait to see you again.”
