  • The tracks on The Circle were inspired by various news events in the second half of 2008. On October 24, 2008, R&B/ soul singer Jennifer Hudson's mother, Darnell Donnerson, and brother, Jason, were found shot to death inside Donnerson's Chicago, Illinois home. Jon Bon Jovi told The Guardian November 5, 2009 that this song, "was about Jennifer Hudson's family getting shot on that Sunday morning. The stories you read in the lyrics are all true."
