GRAMMY AWARD-NOMINATED ARTIST JOHN ONDRASIK, AKA FIVE FOR FIGHTING, WRITES AND PERFORMS AN ORIGINAL SONG COMPOSED SPECIFICALLY FOR THE 100TH EPISODE OF "HAWAII FIVE-0," TO BE BROADCAST FRIDAY, NOV. 7

John Ondrasik of Grammy Award-nominated Five For Fighting wrote and performs a new song specifically for the 100th episode of "HAWAII FIVE-0." The song, entitled "All For One," will premiere within the broadcast of the milestone episode, Friday, November 7 (9:00-10:00 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

"I’m excited to contribute to HAWAII FIVE-0’s landmark moment by writing and performing an original song that will close episode 100," says John Ondrasik. "The song 'All For One' reflects the Ohana bond McGarrett and company have developed over the last five years. There is no show that has a more iconic music theme than HAWAII FIVE-0. As a fan of the original and current series, it's a pleasure to join the Island good guys' on-going legacy. Book 'Em Danno!"

"When John first contacted me about the song, I was struck by the theme and emotion of it and how it organically paralleled what we were trying to convey in the episode," says HAWAII FIVE-0 Executive Producer Peter Lenkov. "Music has always been such a key element to both the classic and current HAWAII FIVE-0 series. We’re honored that John’s music could be a part of that."

Five for Fighting has sold millions of albums and singles over its storied career. The critically acclaimed debut album, "Message for Albert," was released in 1997. Five for Fighting’s breakthrough came in 2001 with the Grammy-nominated, platinum-selling song "Superman" (It’s Not Easy) from the platinum certified America Town. "Superman" (It’s Not Easy) was a chart-topping hit at both Top 40 radio and at Hot AC. In 2004, Five for Fighting recorded the platinum-certified album, "The Battle For Everything," which yielded the retrospective double-platinum hit, "100 Years," a song that spent 12 weeks at #1 at Hot AC. In 2006, they released "Two Lights," featuring "World," the hit song "The Riddle," and "Freedom Never Cries." 2009’s "Slice" yielded the certified gold hit "Chances," which was featured in Oscar winning film "The Blind Side." In all, Ondrasik has placed Five for Fighting songs in over 350 films, TV shows and advertisements.
