Five for Fighting is the stage name of the American singer John Ondrasik , from California.
Five for Fighting is John Ondrasik's stage name. During his youth, he decides that he wants to be a pianist, in the tradition of Elton John and Billy Joel. It adopts the stage name "Five For Fighting" - an expression in ice hockey used when a player is sent off the rink for five minutes by the referee for a fight.
In 1997, his first album Message for Albert was produced by EMI. In 2000, Five for Fighting signed with Columbia Records and directed America Town in September 2000.
