Jon Bon Jovi Records Charity Single for Prince Harry’s Invictus Games

Jon Bon Jovi has been recording a charity single for the foundation that oversees the Invictus Games, and founder Prince Harry stopped by for a visit.

The pair had a little jam session at Abbey Road Studios in London – yep, the same place the Beatles recorded most of their albums.

The song is a re-vamped version of Bon Jovi’s 2019 single “Unbroken” which shines a light on veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder and honours the work of servicemen and women. The track also features the Invictus Games Choir which is made up entirely of armed services personnel.

Started by the Duke of Sussex in 2014, the Games give wounded, injured or sick veterans and personnel the opportunity to compete in various sporting events including wheelchair basketball and sitting volleyball.

The song will be released in March. Until then, we can enjoy the short video Prince Harry posted on the @sussexroyal Insta account:

Testing, testing🎙… • Recorded inside Abbey Road Studios, home to The Beatles and other music legends, The Duke of Sussex joins Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir for a special live session in aid of the Invictus Games Foundation. The song being played, called ‘Unbroken’, was created by Jon Bon Jovi to shine a spotlight on those veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI), to honour their service and acknowledge the strength of the Armed Forces community. The Duke and JBJ are both strong supporters of the military community, with The Duke founding the Invictus Games in 2014. The Invictus Games Choir, made up of wounded, injured and sick veterans and serving personnel from all services and different ranks of the UK Armed Forces, have come together to use the power of music to aid their recovery. Although The Duke was unable to sing, leaving the vocals to the professionals, the special single that was recorded in Studio 2 where The Beatles recorded 11 out of their 13 albums, and will be released in March in support of the @WeAreInvictusGames.
