Jon Bon Jovi to record charity single for Prince Harry’s Invictus Games

The music legend Jon Bon Jovi and Prince Harry are ready to start a new charity project related to the Invictus Games. The US rock star is to record a charity single for Invictus Games Foundation, the Sky News reported.

The single has the tentative name Unbroken, it honours the service of military veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder. Prince Harry will be present when Jon Bon Jovi sings with the Invictus Games Choir in London on 28 February.

In fact, the idea to make such an unusual gift to all military veterans belongs to the American rock star. This week, the announcement was made as the Harry’s Instagram account shared a mocked-up light-hearted exchange of text messages between him and the musician.

The conversation began with Jon Bon Jovi asking the Duke of Sussex «how’s it going?» to which Harry replies with an amusing reference to one of the singer’s hits: «I’m good! Just livin’ on a prayer…».

The charity song will be recorded at Abbey Road Studios. Harry said he will meet members of the choir and competitors from previous Invictus Games who have been invited to attend.

The games were founded by Prince Harry and held for the first time in London in 2014. This year, Invictus Games being held in May in The Hague. That is a multi-sport competition in which wounded, injured or sick armed services personnel and veterans participate.

Both of Jon Bon Jovi’s parents served in the US Marine Corps, and Unbroken will feature on his next album, to be released this year.

The charity recording of the song will be out in March.
