Bon Jovi Releases Charity Version Of 'Unbroken'
Bon Jovi has released a new version of its 2019 track “Unbroken” featuring the 12-member Invictus Games Choir.
The tribute to military veterans was recorded last month at London’s famed Abbey Road Studios – in the same studio where the Beatles recorded 11 albums – with Invictus Games founder Prince Harry on hand.
“The Duke was unable to sing, leaving the vocals to the professionals,” reads the caption on a behind-the-scenes video he shared on Instagram.

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.

Proceeds from the track will go to the Invictus Games Foundation, which aids wounded, sick and injured military personnel.
The original version of “Unbroken,” written for the documentary To Be Of Service, was released last November and appears on the band’s new album Bon Jovi: 2020, out May 15.
