Prince Harry Teams up with Bon Jovi to Record a Song for the Invictus Games and Shares Brief Clip from Abbey Road Studios
Ahead of the upcoming royal's Invictus Games, Prince Harry and Jon Bon Jovi have teamed up to record a song.
Just before he steps down from being a royal, Prince Harry got into the studio with Bon Jovi to work on and promote a new song for his upcoming Invictus Games.
The song, which Bon Jovi wrote himself, was done in an attempt to shine the light on veterans who are living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder...
According to People, Bon Jovi had led the Invictus Games Choir as they sang a version of his song "Unbroken" at the legendary recording home of The Beatles.
Additionally, a clip of the two wearing headphones, with Bon Jovi strumming a guitar before he started to sing, was shared with the official Instagram page of Harry and his wife, Meghan Markle.
The video, which was shared just a few hours ago, has garnered over a million views.
Once the recording was over, Harry and Bon Jovi met with members of the choir, which is made up of veterans and serving personnel from the British military.
The pair had also hung out with competitors from previous Invictus Games who were invited to join the celebration.
The Guardian pointed out that the proceeds made from record sales would go to the foundation that supports the charity.
The site also explained that the event, which was a sporting event that was focused on sick and injured veterans, was one of Harry's favorite causes.
The song, which Bon Jovi wrote himself, was done in an attempt to shine the light on veterans who are living with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and also to pay tribute to their service.
It will be recalled that Jon's parents served in the U.S. Marine Corps thus his support for the military wasn't amiss.

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.

The 57-year-old had spoken about his musical collaboration with his 35-year-old counterpart when he appeared on "The Chris Evans Breakfast Show with Sky," according to a report by People.
The "Wanted Dead or Alive" singer also revealed that he had sent the song - and its lyrics - to Harry as "a great gift" to his Invictus Games.
According to People, Bon Jovi's project for the Duke of Sussex was first announced on Instagram as an imagined text conversation between the two as they chatted about working together for the Invictus Games, which is scheduled to hold in May.
