Verizon Center concert goers on Monday night were treated to an amazing show and educated on the importance of giving back.  The double message of JBJs tour is a great night of music and spreading awareness for his Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. They strive to “Rebuild pride in one’s self and community – one soul at a time.” When he’s not “Living on a Prayer” Bon Jovi spends his time visiting sites of new housing projects and partnering to further the mission of JBJSF.

Before concerts on the Circle Tour fans view a video promoting President Obama’s service initiative “United We Serve.”  We hear neither POTUS  or FLOTUS appear in the flick, but JBJ has chatted it up on the phone with the President about the significance of reaching out and helping others. “We can tackle the tough challenges we face and build community through service and volunteering,” Bon Jovi mentions on the giant screen. “The reality is, we’re all in this together.”
