Jon Bon Jovi wants you to help him write a coronavirus song

News 25/03/2020

Jon Bon Jovi is asking fans to help him write a song inspired by their coronavirus experiences.

As an attempt to lift people's spirits up, Bon Jovi shared the news that he has started a new track titled Do What You Can after a photo of him washing dishes in his JBJ Soul Kitchen that offers food aid to a New Jersey community.

He captioned the photo, "When you can't do what you do, you do what you can."

"These are trying times we're going through - uncharted territory, the great unknown," Bon Jovi expressed in a new video. "But one thing is for sure – we're gonna make it through. ... I did what I do best, which is to sit down with my guitar and try to put something into words for you, to brighten up your day. Here's my idea: We write this one together."

In the video, he played the first verse and chorus, then played the chords that will go with a second verse yet to be written. "You tell me your story," he suggested. "Tell me what you're going through. Tell me how you're feeling. Tell me if you're hurting. … Sing your song, you and me together, and remember, if you can't do what you do, you do what you can."

The chorus goes, "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."

If you're interested to tell Bon Jovi your story, he suggests you write it on your social media accounts and include the hashtag #DoWhatYouCan
