In this exclusive and rare interview, Jon Bon Jovi reveals to CNBC Meets presenter Tania Bryer, his passion and dedication to his philanthropic work and takes Tania on a tour of a Philadelphia neighbourhood that is one of many affordable housing builds helmed by the Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation. In a candid interview, Jon talks about his childhood, his breakthrough into the music business and how he manages his 'Day Job' and his family.
