Harry And Jon Bon Jovi Release Invictus Games Charity Single

Bon Jovi's track 'Unbroken' has been re-recorded as a charity single in aid of the Invictus Games Foundation.

A charity single recorded by the Duke of Sussex, Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir has been released.

'Unbroken' was originally written and released by Bon Jovi last year as a tribute to veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder.

In February, the singer re-recorded Unbroken across two days at the world-famous Abbey Road Studios in London in aid of the Invictus Games Foundation.

Since the recording, this year's Invictus Games have been postponed due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Susan Warner, a member of the Invictus Games Choir who was seriously injured in Afghanistan in 2009, says the song can offer hope during the pandemic.

“We hope the single will touch many hearts and be a light during this troubling time for so many people around the world," Ms Warner said.

"It just feels like it is so important.

“In life you never know what might open up or what is going to happen. This is a very good example."

A music video has also been recorded to accompany the release of the song.

It starts with a conversation between the Duke and Bon Jovi.

Harry says: "With military people, there’s a way of being able to talk about the scars of war in a positive way.

“Some suffer from post-traumatic stress, some of them suffer from depression, anxiety, but they are stronger for it.

“Those are the kind of ambassadors and role models that we need.”

Bon Jovi replies: “Well, I thank you for what you have done to bring a light to that. It’s what you are doing, really. I just got inspired to write a song from it."

Harry's words in the video are also reflected in a conversation he had with the choir during the recording session.

He urged the singers to use their experiences of mental health to make a "massive difference" in the wider world.

The charity single is now available to download and stream.
