As the grunge scene began to expand, Ondraski returned to his piano where he has spent the past decade writing deeply personal songs and making emotional connections spanning six full studio albums. Five for Fighting's breakthrough came in 2001 with the chart-topping song “Superman.” Following the acclaim of his Grammy-nominated song, Ondrasik released “100 Years,” "World" and "The Riddle” and has been featured in more 350 films, TV shows and advertisements ranging from The Blind Side to The Sopranos. Ondrasik has been deeply involved in supporting the troops with USO tours, supporting several veteran oriented charities and distributing more than a million CDs for the Troops to servicemen and their families around the world.
