Who says celebrities and royals aren’t just like us? They, too, enjoy jamming to ’80s hair-band tunes. Except if you’re Taylor Swift or Prince William, you can sing along with Jon Bon Jovi in person.

At Tuesday’s Winter Whites Gala at Kensington Palace, Jon Bon Jovi performed a stripped-down version of the Bon Jovi classic “Livin’ on a Prayer,” backed up by the future king of England and Swift, who also performed separately at the event. The first annual gala was in support of Centrepoint, a U.K.-based charity focused on aiding homeless young people.

But within days, he returned to the U.S. and got to work touring damage in the Garden State, urging his fellow Americans to donate to relief efforts, and preparing to perform in NBC’s upcoming Hurricane Sandy benefit concert.

The musician appeared visibly shaken on the Today show this morning, where he described the devastating experience of seeing firsthand how Sandy had destroyed his hometown. Bon Jovi said that his grammar school has been turned into a shelter; he also spoke with several “hard-working, blue collar people” whose houses were leveled when the hurricane struck.
