In 2020

Jon Bon Jovi has teamed up with former British Royal Prince Harry and the Invictus Games Choir to release the emotional charity single "Unbroken". 

Opening with Jovi and the choir singing "I was born to be of service / Basic training felt like home / I had the honor, I found a purpose / "Sir, yes, sir", c 'is what i know,' the song will benefit the Invictus Games Foundation, which helps service members who are injured or become ill while serving.

Recorded at London's iconic Abbey Road Studios earlier this year, the song was originally released in 2019 on the soundtrack to the documentary  "To Be of Service" in tribute to veterans suffering from PTSD.

"With the military there is a way to speak about the scars of war in a positive way," Harry, Duke of Sussex, said in a statement. "Some suffer from post-traumatic stress, some of them suffer from depression, anxiety, but they are stronger for it. These are the kind of ambassadors and role models we need."

"I just got inspired to write a song about it," Jon Bon Jovi shared. "It's touching, their desire to serve and what they've given, and what they get out of singing."
