Bon Jovi releases new 'Do What You Can' video about heroes in the COVID-19 pandemic

The video shows how different people are coping during the pandemic.

Early on in the COVID-19 pandemic, a photo of Jon Bon Jovi working at his JBJ Soul Kitchen Community restaurant in New Jersey was posted online with the caption, "If you can't do what you do, do what you can."

In the video, the singer is seen at iconic New York locations such as Times Square, Broadway, the stoop of a brownstone and on the flight deck of the USS Intrepid.

We also see shots of front-line workers, people talking to others via Zoom, people communicating with loved ones through windows and doors, people celebrating birthdays remotely and everyday folks on the streets wearing masks as they go about their day.

“Shooting a video on nearly empty streets of Manhattan amid a global crisis really told the story of 'Do What You Can' from the place where I lived it," the singer said in a press release. "And I know those empty streets look similar to so many parts of America battling this pandemic."

"But the story of everyday heroes showing amazing courage was inspiring to see and the video, much like the song, has a great deal of hope in it too,” he added.

"Do What You Can," which is available everywhere now, appears on Bon Jovi's new album "2020," due out Oct. 2.
