Bon Jovi React To Ukrainians Listening To ‘It’s My Life’ While Getting Ready For Russian Attacks
Bon Jovi recently shared a post on their official Twitter page, reacting to footage from Ukraine of a drummer playing ‘It’s My Life’ while other people are working to survive during the current heated war in Ukraine.
Russia President Vladimir Putin’s attacks all over Ukraine have continued increasingly every day for almost a month now. The residents of Ukraine still fear for their lives, and those who were able to escape have sought refuge in the neighboring countries. Those who choose to stay or have no ways to flee are trying to figure out how to survive in their own country.
One of the many things musicians could do to support the country was to allow the Ukrainians to use their songs to stand up to the attacks of the Russian military. Previously, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider also allowed the inhabitants of Ukraine to use their song ‘We’re Not Gonna Take It,’ which is also a song used mainly against oppression.
Several other rockstars like Axl Rose, Paul Stanley, and Elton John condemned the Russian government and supported Ukraine through this crisis. Moreover, Queen had recently made a live stream of their 2008 concert in Ukraine with Paul Rodgers and collected over $5 million to fund refugees from Ukraine. The rock and roll world is using its powers to support the victims of this war in every way it can.
Regardless of countless criticism and threats toward Russia, most people are still in underground shelters and are united to keep safe and help each other out. Hence, a video emerged of a group of people in Odesa at the beach gathering supplies while a drummer is jamming on Bon Jovi’s ‘It’s My Life.’ Bon Jovi shared this footage on their official Twitter account and showed their support towards Ukraine.
The tweet of Bon Jovi follows:
“This is for the ones who stood their ground. Odesa, Ukraine.”
