The inspirational track feels a little more fuller and in a more choral manner that the Bon Jovi original, but it's no less powerful serving as a call to arms for service and sacrifice.

The release of the song on Friday came days after the announcement that the Invictus Games will be postponed until May or June 2021 due to the worldwide coronavirus pandemic.

Caroline, another choir member, added: "For me, this song is about the fact that yes I've struggled, but I'm not broken".

"Recorded inside Abbey Road Studios, home to The Beatles and other music legends, The Duke of Sussex joins Jon Bon Jovi and the Invictus Games Choir for a special live session in aid of the Invictus Games Foundation", the official Instagram account of the Duke and Duchess of Sussex posted on February 28.

Bon Jovi and Prince Harry teamed up earlier this year to launch a special new project.

Although Bon Jovi initially wrote the track for the American documentary To Be of Service, about veterans living with PTSD and the service animals that help them, he then had the idea of using the song for the Invictus Games.

Harry's words in the video are also reflected in a conversation he had with the choir during the recording session. The frontman has been a big supporter of the military for a long time as both his parents served in the U.S. Marine Corps. "After I was blown up, I laid there in the middle of the night thinking 'This has changed my life... no legs, hand injuries... what am I going to do next?' And who would have thought I would be singing about being blown up". According to Bon Jovi, his wife created a "quarantine zone", which was the laundry room set up in such a way where everything was blocked off.

He continued: "Some suffer from post-traumatic stress, some of them suffer from depression, anxiety, but they are stronger for it".

Bon Jovi replies: "Well, I thank you for what you have done to bring a light to that". It's what you're doing, really. "I wrote him a letter and I said 'I've sung with your brother and met your father and so I said listen to it and let me know". Reportedly, a few of his mates had been examined for the sickness and a few of them got here again constructive.

"So I went to England before COVID took over. I'm still here and I'm unbroken".
