Jon Bon Jovi covered Harry Styles’ ‘Watermelon Sugar’ during a charity fundraising gig last Friday (May 7) – you can watch his rendition below.
The gig raised over $50,000 (£35,680) for Meals On Wheels and Project Most, and saw Bon Jovi performing a mix of his own songs and covers, as well as taking questions from the audience.
Bon Jovi’s cover of ‘Watermelon Sugar’ was captured on camera by one attendee and subsequently shared on social media – you can watch the performance in the clip below.

Accepting the award, Styles said: “Moments like this make me more incredibly grateful to get to do this.” Some viewers were, however, surprised by an apparent change in Styles’ accent.
This year’s BRIT Awards ceremony opened with Coldplay performing their new single ‘Higher Power’ from a pontoon on the River Thames. Dua Lipa, Arlo Parks, Headie One and more also took to the stage at The O2 in London.
