Jon Bon Jovi returned to a Manhattan fire house to sing for firefighters just days before the 10th anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

On Wednesday, the rocker sang "America The Beautiful," which was the same song he sang for a performance that aired nationally in 2001 prior to the kickoff of the first NFL games after 9/11.

Bon Jovi said the more recent performance was just as moving as the first one.
