The star of the hit song, Born to be My Baby took his act to the Ice-Skating rink at the Plaza. His concerts are usually a full house event but the performance of Unbroken did not go as planned.
NBC team present at the event had to literally beg people to go see Jon perform Unbroken at the rink. They were there to record some segments for a Christmas special program. The NBC team was shouting:
Come see Bon Jovi and Mean Girls tonight on the rink.
Even after all these efforts, not more than 300 people showed up to listen to Unbroken.
Runaway star created the song to honor homeless veterans. The rock star has previously mentioned that all the earnings from the song will go to Patriotic Service Dog Foundation (PSDF), which connects veterans with the dogs.
Oftentimes, they’re [veterans] left to deal with PTSD [post-traumatic stress disorder] and the issue of coming back to the workplace after leaving the battlefield … Life as you knew it is going to be different, and sometimes, people need that extra help.
Unbroken was written for the documentary “To Be of Service,” and It is about the lives of veterans and their service dogs.
The concert might not be a success but the song will be. Unbroken is part of his upcoming 2020 music album.
