The rock band started by playing showcase and performing at local talents. They released their self-titled debut album in 1984 and by their second, 7800° Fahrenheit, and the third album, Slippery When Wet, the group had already taken over globally. The band has released 16 studio albums and five compilations and has sold more than 130 million records.
Although Jon's accomplishments with his band are staggering, to say the least, the singer has also achieved notable feats in his solo career. In the 90s, Jovi began film scoring, and some of his credits include soundtracks for Young Guns II, Stand Up Guys, and Destination Anywhere. The Runaway hitmaker has acting credits in Homegrown, Little City, No Looking Back, and Sex and the City.

Jon recalls being deeply affected by the problem of homelessness when he spotted a man sleeping on a sidewalk grate during his Philadelphia Soul years. Jovi and his soul foundation have since built more than 700 units of affordable housing nationwide. Jon's foundation later branched to include JBJ Soul Kitchen, a non-profit community restaurant.
Jon says his interest in things other than music, including sports, politics and philanthropy, sparked in 1992 when he developed a friendship with President Bill Clinton during the Clinton/Gore campaign. "I loved when he opened Soul Kitchen," President Clinton said about Jon's initiatives.

Clinton adds, "He's got people from a whole spectrum of society meeting with folks that are homeless or make barely enough to properly feed themselves. Interesting things have come out of that — people have found jobs, have gotten in training programs."
Jovi and his wife Dorothea Hurley have been married for over four decades, and the Livin' on a Prayer crooner and Bongiovi have been equal partners in Jon's charity projects. "When we see injustice or people suffering, you want to help. We're very blessed, and we have the ability to do that," said Jovi's wife and the mother of his four children.
