Freebie Friday: Autographed Five for Fighting CD


This Freebie Friday is shared with my blog Real Life!

The simple, but haunting, piano melody begins. The pure, exquisite voice pierces the room, making me smile. Enter: the gentle drum beat, prompting a head bob, opening up to a full rhythm. Dancing with the dishes, is that such a good idea?

This is the scene as I first listen to Five for F51pw7q2TX3L._SL500_AA240_ighting’s song, “Slice” from the so-titled new CD release! I don’t know why, but I always first listen to new music while I’m cleaning the kitchen! If it makes me dance a little while I scrub, wishing I knew the words – or stop in amazement, listening to the melodic and harmonic intricacies, then I know it’s good! And Slice made me do both!

John Ondrasik has such a huge vocal range, and a signature sound that is immediately recognizable! When he seemlessly and beautifully goes into the falsetto range, or throws in a blue note, it really makes me stop and smile, and sometimes gives me chills! And I always say that if an artist can hold his/her own with just a piano and a mic, there is no denying that talent! But don’t take my word for it, listen yourself!

My favorite thing about John Ondrasik and Five for Fighting is the work he does for charity and the US Military troops

  • In Feb 2007 John launched a charity driven website – 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
