The widow of Linkin Park singer Ch­ester Ben­ning­ton has thanked James Cor­den for al­low­ing the fam­ily to de­cide whether an episode of the “Car­pool Karaoke” spinoff se­ries fea­tur­ing the singer should be aired.

Ben­ning­ton, who died at 41 last month, was sched­uled to ap­pear in an up­com­ing episode of “Car­pool Karaoke: The Se­ries,” a show based on Cor­den’s reg­u­lar seg­ments on “The Late Late Show With James Cor­den” in which he drives mu­sic celebri­ties around and sings with them.

Cor­den, an ex­ec­u­tive pro­ducer on the Ap­ple Mu­sic spinoff, told the As­so­ci­ated Press on Mon­day that Ben­ning­ton’s fam­ily should de­cide whether it is aired.

Ben­ning­ton’s widow, Talinda Ben­ning­ton, shared a news re­port of Cor­den’s com­ments and tweeted: “Thank you.”
