Rocker turned Ally McBeal castmember Jon Bon Jovi and guitarist Richie Sambora have recorded a touching version of “America The Beautiful” that is now available for download as an MP3 file at Bon Jovi’s official band website, bonjovi.com.
Jon Bon Jovi personally introduces the track, and he asks those who choose to download it to also make a donation to libertyunites.org to support the victims of the terrorist attack, their rescuers, their families, and their communities. “Hi, this is Jon Bon Jovi. In light of the tragic events of September 11, we’ve all tried to do something, anything, to help the recovery efforts that have affected so many families here in our area,” he said. “We gave blood, made sandwiches, donated clothes and money, and we sang. We sang for our country, to our country, as our way of saying we’re one, united. I recorded this with the help of some friends and I hope that you’ll enjoy it. Download it, keep it, save it, play it, be proud of it, and I’ll ask you to do so with your hearts as well as your wallet because I’m asking you to download it and send a donation, anything you can. Just send it to libertyunites.org. Thank you.”
