Headliner: Five for Fighting
Presented by: Guild Mortgage and Hunter Communications; Lite 102 and KDRV Channel 12
John Ondrasik has certainly soared in every aspect of the music industry. From songwriting, producing, to performing, this Los Angeles native known better as Five for Fighting – a hockey penalty moniker he chose to pay homage to his beloved L.A. Kings – has been a one-man team unto himself, constantly shooting and scoring while setting the bar higher each time.
Ondrasik’s collection of heartfelt songs has found their place in The Great American Songbook and continue to stand the test of time. If “Superman” put Ondrasik on the map, “100 Years” kept him there. “100 Years” has likely set the record for the “most used home movie song” while remaining as relevant.
