Singer-songwriter John Ondrasik (On drah sick) 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 four albums by Five For Fighting, the band name under which he records and performs.

Ondrasik’s debut album, the critically acclaimed, Message forAlbert, was released in 1997. Five For Fighting’s breakthrough came in 2001 with the Grammy-nominated song “Superman” from the Platinum certified “AmericaTown” (Aware/Columbia) CD. Already climbing the charts prior to 9/11, “Superman” went on to have a life of his own, becoming a song of healing for the nation. John joined superstar musicians for the now legendary post 9/11 fundraiser The Concert For New York, which paid tribute to all the firefighters, police officers and paramedics affected by the events of September 11th.

In 2004, John recorded the Platinum-certified album, The Battle For Everything, which yielded the retrospective hit, “100 Years,” a song that has become a part of classic American songbook. With the 2006 release of Two Lights, featuring “World,” the hit song “The Riddle,” and “Freedom Never Cries,” John continued to craft songs with material drawn from his personal experience in regards to love, war, culture, family, humanity and mortality.

In the fall of 2007, Ondrasik released the first live Five For Fighting CD titled “Live”, and the DVD, “Back Country Live” . The CD captures the band live in concert and the DVD features live concert footage, Five For Fighting Music videos, interviews and bonus features.

In addition to his musical accomplishments John has a made a personal commitment towards causes that are important to him. In February of 2007, Ondrasik launched a unique charity-driven web site, what kind of world do you want .com that raises money for various charities when users view video clips provided by visitors to the site. Current views are over three million with approximately three hundred thousand dollars donated.

The success of the site led to late 2007 collaboration between Ondrasik and The History Channel, with the launching a user-generated video contest. Fans created a video on Eyespot .com describing what kind of world they want by making a video using archival footage of important historical events and the Five For Fighting song “World” as the music bed. One winning video was chosen to air on The History Channel.

John has also been a dedicated supporter of U. S.troops. In March 2007, he performed at Guantanamo Bay for service members on his first USO/Armed Forces Entertainment tour. Since then John has performed for U. S.forces on USO tours in Hawaii, Guam and Japan.

Ondrasik has also conceived and produced “For the Troops,” a CD compilation series of superstar recording artists that is available for free to every active service person in the U. S. Armed Forces. Volume 1, released on Thanksgiving 2007, included Billy Joel, Brooks & Dunn, Josh Groban, The Fray, Melissa Etheridge, Los Lonely Boys as well as Five For Fighting’s “100 Years.” Over 200,000 CDs were distributed in Iraq, Afghanistan, military hospitals, USO centers and to various troop support groups. Over three hundred and fifty thousand songs were downloaded from the Army and Air Force exchange online store. “For the Troops 2”, released on Thanksgiving 2008, includes Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Daughtry, 3 Doors Down, Five For Fighting, Roy Orbison and others.

Along with numerous television licenses, Five For Fighting’s John Ondrasik’s film credits include compositions for “August Rush,” “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants,” ” We Were Soldiers,” “Chicken Little” and “Everyone’s Hero.”
