Arnel Pineda: a Filipino Icon

Arnel Pineda is the new Filipino lead vocalist of the band Journey.

The story of this man is an inspiring one.

Running away from home so that his father can support his other siblings, is a  heroic act that he did. He suffered a lot in the following years he did spend on the street.

And one thing that ease this pain is his passion for music. Creating a small band, with his friends, Arnel took the first step of his career. One time, he sang a song of the Journey, and a friend of his ask his permission that the video taken from that performance be post on YouTube.com.

After a while, the band took notice of the similarities in his voice and the old Journey vocalist. When they contact Arnel and ask him to be part of their band, the young Filipino did not believe them, thinking it was only a prank.

After which, he was invited to the U.S. to formally meet the members of the band, he was not that sure of it.

But after meeting them, he can’t believe his luck.

And so, the training start and we can now see how great he is. He had proven himself to be one of the most respected Filipino.

And for me, Arnel is a Filipino Icon.
