Invincible is the official anthem for the Dutch Invictus Team 2020 and is a true tribute to all wounded and ill (former) servicemen and -women.
This video is created to reach as many people as possible to create more awareness, recognition and appreciation to all who served, and especially to those who paid a very (if not the ultimate) price.
Band member (storyteller, singer, lyricist) Erik (43):"Everyone who has been physically or mentally injured or who is ill provides a fight of the outside category during their recovery. The energy it takes to win that fight is huge. The power that it provides to emerge as the winner; that is what Invincible tells."
The song was mastered at the world famous Abbey Road Studios in London.
7even Bridges is touring Dutch theaters. In their tour Erik, who is an Afghanistan veteran, tells how he was sent to war-torn Afghanistan and, after returning, fell prey to post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD).
The Invictus Games 2020 will be organized in the Netherlands. 500 participants from 19 different countries are participating. The Invictus Games is a sporting event that distinguishes itself from other events, because all participants are wounded or sick (former) soldiers and the event is aimed at demonstrating the resilience of the participants. Although medals can be distributed, this is not the goal. Every participant shows ultimate perseverance and overcomes himself during this event.
Erik: “I think it's fantastic that we can pay a very direct tribute to the Dutch participants in this way. I myself have had to fight hard during my recovery to survive and I succeeded. I am grateful that through stories and music I can now inspire others and in this way contribute to the Invictus heritage. ”
