Show Details


Ondrasik, a Los Angeles native, who goes by Five for Fighting (a five-minute penalty in hockey for on-the-ice fist-a-cuffs), has had his music featured in 350 films, TV shows, and advertisements ranging from the The Blind Side to Hawaii Five-O. He has written tunes for everyone from Josh Groban to The Backstreet Boys.

The aforementioned ‘Superman (It’s Not Easy) ’ went Platinum (as did the al-bum), was number one on Adult Top 40, number two on Hot AC, and in the Top 40 Top 10. The mega-hit served as sort of an unofficial anthem following the 9/11 attacks on American soil.

In his career, Ondrasik has sold over 2.5 million albums including 2004’s ‘Battle for Everything,’ which spawned the 2X platinum ‘100 Years,’ which continues to melt hearts, provide all ages with an instant case of nostalgia. Other hits have included ‘The Riddle,’ ‘World,’ ‘Chances’ and ‘What If.’
