勇武不敗,英國哈利王子與邦喬飛進Abbey Road錄製慈善單曲

35歲的薩塞克斯公爵哈利王子(Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex)與梅根王妃(Meghan, Duchess of Sussex),在今年一月宣告脫離英國皇室,之後動向更加吸引群眾好奇。2月28日哈利王子與喬邦喬飛(Jon Bon Jovi)在倫敦會面,一起為不可征服運動會基金會(Invictus Games Foundation)前往Abbey Road錄音室錄製慈善歌曲,這也是哈利王子最終的王室職責之一,專輯預計在3月發行。

「不可征服運動會」(Invictus Games)是由哈利王子在2014年創立的國際性綜合體育賽事,對象是受傷、生病的武裝部隊人員及相關的退役軍人,項目包含:輪椅籃球、坐式排球和室內划船⋯⋯等9種運動。哈利王子與邦喬飛共同錄製的歌曲是〈Unbroken〉,這首歌由57歲的邦喬飛創作,歌詞關注罹患創傷後壓力症候群(Post-traumatic stress disorder,簡稱PTSD)的退伍軍人,並有退伍軍人組成的Invictus合唱團共同參與。

Testing, testing🎙… • 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 song being played, called ‘Unbroken’, was created by Jon Bon Jovi to shine a spotlight on those veterans living with Post Traumatic Stress Injury (PTSI), to honour their service and acknowledge the strength of the Armed Forces community. The Duke and JBJ are both strong supporters of the military community, with The Duke founding the Invictus Games in 2014. The Invictus Games Choir, made up of wounded, injured and sick veterans and serving personnel from all services and different ranks of the UK Armed Forces, have come together to use the power of music to aid their recovery. Although The Duke was unable to sing, leaving the vocals to the professionals, the special single that was recorded in Studio 2 where The Beatles recorded 11 out of their 13 albums, and will be released in March in support of the @WeAreInvictusGames.

「我說過我會試試看。」哈利王子在自己的Instagram寫道。

邦喬飛週三在倫敦的「克里斯埃文斯早餐秀」(The Chris Evans Breakfast Show)廣播節目中表示:「我在美國完成這首歌之前,曾在8月給他的回信中提到歌曲與歌詞,我說這將是我給Invictus Games的絕佳禮物。長話短說,誰知道他會發生什麼事,他說好,且堅持至今,所以我們正在這樣做。」

另一方面,兩名Invictus合唱團成員與哈利王子、邦喬飛,也一起現身傳奇的披頭四斑馬線,重現《Abbey Road》專輯封面的經典過馬路場景。
