Interview: Five for Fighting’s John Ondrasik

We sat down with FIVE FOR FIGHTING’s Grammy® nominated, platinum-selling singer/songwriter John Ondrasik during his national U.S. tour to discuss his new single “OK.”

Best known for his firs major hit “Superman (It’s Not Easy),” which Ondrasik wrote post 9/11, the singer is no stranger to tackling societal topics and world politics in his music. Most recently, Ondrasik’s released his new music video, “OK” – a composition that expresses Ondrasik’s heartfelt view about the October 7th Hamas attacks in Israel, while addressing the cultural aftermath both in America and around the world. For Ondrasik,“’OK’ is not a political message, but a moral one. A call to action!

Currently, Ondrasik is on a national tour where he’s performing his mega-hits including “Superman (It’s Not Easy),”as well as “100 YEARS”, “The Riddle”, “Chances”,  and many more! The tour runs through the end of August and tickets and details are available at
