A Voice for Forgotten Children

John Ondrasik


Never has the phrase “he shoots, he scores” been more applicable than when mentioning rabid hockey fan and singer/songwriting super man John Ondrasik. The Californian, who goes by Five for Fighting (a five-minute penalty for on-the-ice fist-a-cuffs), burst on the scene some 15 years ago with his Grammy Award-nominated hit “Superman (It’s Not Easy),” and has been a mainstay on mainstream radio ever since. While he doesn’t wear tights and fight crime as his breakthrough track might suggest (in title anyway), Ondrasik’s songs could bring any maniacal villain to their knees with his poignantly -sharp songs that cut deeper than a Ginsu knife.
