5 For Fighting's Ondrasik returns to NY to perform song that became 9-11 anthem
NEW YORK, N.Y. - John Ondrasik, the singer-songwriter who goes by the stage name Five For Fighting, is returning to the New York area to perform his hit song, "Superman (It's Not Easy)," which became an anthem for many after the terrorist attacks 10 years ago.
Ondrasik will perform at a few events this weekend, including playing "Superman" at halftime of the Dallas Cowboys-New York Jets game Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J.
9/11: Ten Years Later
Ondrasik tells The Associated Press he has been careful since 9-11 when he plays the song, especially in New York, "because you want to be very respectful and you never want a tinge of exploitation." He accepted the Jets' invitation to be part of their commemorative events because "they're doing a very respectful job."
