Prince Harry and Jon Bon Jovi record at Abbey Road Studios
Prince Harry – uh, just Harry – and Jon Bon Jovi are ready to rock! On February 28, the dynamic duo reunited at iconic Abbey Road Studios in London to record a single for the upcoming Invictus Games (which have now been postponed due to coronavirus). Harry, who officially steps down from royal duties this month, and the legendary singer spoke to members of the Invictus Games Choir after recording a rendition of Bon Jovi’s 2019 hit “Unbroken.” Harry even tried to sing but said in a Instagram post about the rally that he would “leave the singing to the professionals”. He and Bon Jovi also met competitors from previous Invictus Games and recreated The Beatles. Abbey Road album cover featuring an Invictus athlete and choir member.
The choir’s version of “Unbroken,” which was released on Friday and will appear on Bon Jovi’s album Bon Jovi 2020, shines a light on veterans living with post-traumatic stress disorder and expresses support for those who have served. The release of the LP is scheduled for May 15. Founded by Harry in 2014, the Invictus Games hosts a series of sporting events in which wounded, injured or ill service members and veterans compete against each other.
