The Black Bon Jovi

Atlanta musician announces partnership with American Cancer Society for hit single

ATLANTA – The Black Bon Jovi, an Atlanta musical artist and advocate for cancer patients and their families, announced Thursday he has teamed up with the American Cancer Society for his smash single “Cancer Survivor,” an anthem encouraging those struggling with cancer to fight for their lives.

“Cancer Survivor” is available for purchase on iTunes with a portion of the proceeds going to the Southeast Region of the American Cancer Society from now until September 30.

Donning his signature face paint and infectious positive energy, The Black Bon Jovi will be performing his hit single along with his other vibrant, upbeat songs at The 2019 Cancer Survivor Celebrity Kickball Fundraiser Tour .

“I am so excited Waka Flocka Flame, Iheart Memphis , Fabo, Ceo Miami Mike and Soulja Boy decided to assist me with spreading positive energy to the ones that are in need,” said Smith. “This movement is bigger than myself and I want those who are dealing with cancer and their families to know they are not alone. I am fighting for you. I am fighting with you.”

Born Dominic Smith in Boston, Massachusetts, The Black Bon Jovi aka The Cancer Killa started his entertainment career after his aunt was diagnosed with breast cancer. As her primary caretaker, he would often say, “Hold on, Auntie. You are halfway there.” This is when Smith’s aunt coined the name The Black Bon Jovi, referring his comforting words to the lyrics of the Bon Jovi song “Livin’ On A Prayer.” 


After the passing of his aunt, Smith decided to take his nickname and his passion for helping those afflicted by cancer and start his own movement. Along with his donations from the sales of “Cancer Survivor,” Smith is challenging big-name artists like Soulja Boy and iHeartMemphis to become a resource in the fight against cancer.

The Black Bon Jovi is currently managed by Stacks on Deck and PTE Entertainment, founded in 2004 by rap artist Soulja Boy.
