WATCH | Rocker Bon Jovi ropes in fans to help finish his new Covid-19 song
Bon Jovi frontman Jon Bon Jovi recently shared a YouTube video in which he detailed his latest musical project, Do What You Can, a song inspired by the coronavirus pandemic.
In the nearly four-minute clip — watch it below — the 58-year-old musician explains that he has already written the first verse and chorus of the yet-unfinished song.
"When you can't do what you do/You do what you can/This ain't my prayer/It's just a thought I'm wanting to send/Round here we bend but don't break/Down here we all understand/When you can't do what you do/You do what you can," he sings in the uplifting chorus.
The title of the song notably references the caption of a photograph where Bon Jovi is seen washing dishes at JBJ Soul Kitchen Community Restaurant in his native New Jersey.
Now the rocker is calling on fans to help him write the second verse by sharing their experiences of life amid the global coronavirus pandemic on social media with the hashtag #DoWhatYouCan.
"Tell me how you're feeling, tell me if you're hurting. Talk about that high school graduation that's gonna be cancelled, talk about that prom you might just not have, talk about that baby coming that there's nothing you can do about that, talk about the paycheck you're losing, talk about being afraid — looking out your window and wondering what to make of all this. Just remember, we're gonna get through it," he elaborates .
