Five For Fighting

You may know the term "Five for Fighting" from San Jose Sharks hockey games when a player receives a 5-minute penalty for fighting. But it is also the stage name for American singer-songwriter John Ondrasik. He is known for his platinum-hit songs "100 Years" and "Superman (It's Not Easy)". I got a chance to meet him yesterday at an intimate little party of 40 people at Hotel De Anza in downtown San Jose. He performed a few songs for us which was very cool since all he had was his acoustic guitar and his beautiful voice. No band! Here is a little video that I shot of him performing "Superman (It's Not Easy)".

John is a very cool guy and compassionate too. (And he is a big supporter of our Troops overseas) He was instrumental in helping to deliver more than 200,000 CDs to US troops around the globe and to offer the music from the CD as free MP3 downloads for them as well. What a guy.

  2. Hi Flirty Girl,

    Yes, it was a great experience. He has a beautiful voice. He talked about his wife and family too which I thought was very cool.
