Five for Fighting, New Album Slice Review

I was very excited to be able to be one of the chosen few to review this great new album!!!
You will defiantly want to check this out!!

I have to admit that I did not know a lot of songs by Five For Fighting but I think everyone knows “Superman” and "100 Years".
Check out their website:


Five For Fighting is back!

Fall is a great time to update your personal playlist and the new Five For Fighting album should definitely grab a spot on your list.
Singer/songwriter John Ondrasik has spent the past decade writing deeply personal songs that include social messages, invoke the human spirit and make an emotional connection. This can be heard on the past five albums by Five For Fighting, the band name under which he records and performs.

Now John delivers a new album, Slice, featuring the song "Chances", available October 13th.

Five For Fighting’s breakthrough came in 2001 with the Grammy Nominated song “Superman”, from the Platinum certified “America Town”. The song was climbing the charts upon release, and when 9/11 happened, it became a song of healing for the nation. They performed the song at the post 9/11 fundraiser The Concert for New York which paid tribute to all the firefighters, police officers & paramedics affected by the events of 9/11.
On the 2004 release, “The Battle For Everything”, the song “100 Years” followed in the footsteps of “Superman” as yet another inspiring reflective song.

And one of the things to love about John is that he is happily married and the father of two children whom he dotes on. His oldest actually made a debut in one of his videos as a newborn! (His other baby, his retro Ford Mustang, has made appearances in more than one album package and video.) He and his family reside in Los Angeles, CA.


John will be hitting the road in October with An Acoustic Evening with Five For Fighting. The songs are great on record, even better live! Definitely a show worth seeing! To find out about how to get tickets in a market near you, go to his site.

Five For Fighting: Move That Bus!

On Sunday, September 27th Five For Fighting performed "Chances" and "Superman" on the 2-hour season premiere of ABC's Extreme Makeover Home Edition.

My Zune now holds all of the Five for Fighting songs. I feel that these songs are written and full of HEART felt messages....I really enjoyed all of their new songs. But my favorites by far are "CHANCES" & "SLICE".
Please go to their website and check out their new songs, you will want to buy this CD.

Thanks One2OneNetwork for giving me the chance to write my 1st review
