Five for Five is Back – win an autographed CD!

October 12, 2009

Five For Fighting is back! I was thrilled when One2One Network gave me the opportunity to review Five for Fighting’s new Album, Slice. It is definitely time to update our personal playlist with this album!

John Ondrasik, singer/songwriter, has spent the past decade pouring heart and soul into personal songs that include social messages, invoke the human spirit and make an emotional connection. John’s new album, Slice, is in stores October 13th and features the song “Chances”.

Five For Fighting’s breakthrough came in 2001 with the Grammy Nominated song “Superman”, from the Platinum certified “America Town”. The song was climbing the charts upon release, and when 9/11 happened, it became a song of healing for the nation. FFF performed the song at the post 9/11 fundraiser The Concert for New York which paid tribute to all the firefighters, police officers & paramedics affected by the events of 9/11.

On the 2004 release, “The Battle For Everything”, the song “100 Years” followed in the footsteps of “Superman” as yet another inspiring reflective song.

One of the things that I love about John is that he is happily married and the father of two children. His oldest child made a debut as a newborn on one of his videos! I also love that he has a retro Ford Mustang (I love mustangs) and uses it in several of the videos and album packages.

The family calls Los Angeles, California.

Did you know that Five for Fight…
In Feb 2007 John launched a charity driven website – whatkindofworlddoyouwant.com that raises money for various charities when users view video clips provided by visitors to the site. Current views are over 3 million with approx. $300,000 donated!

John is a dedicated supporter of US Troops, performing for US Forces at Guantanamo Bay, Hawaii, Guam & Japan on USO tours
John created & produced “For the Troops”, a CD compilation of superstar recordings that is available for free to every active service person in US Armed Forces

Along with numerous television licenses, John’s composed songs for “August Rush”, “The Sisterhood Of The Traveling Pants”, “We Were Soldiers”, “Chicken Little” & “Everyone’s Hero”

John loves sports and writing (and not just great songs)! He penned a regular hockey column for SportsIllustrated.com from 2005-2007, and freelances for various publications.
