Arnel Pineda – The phenomenal singer from the Philippines, and now the world! Kudos to his friend Noel Gomez for uploading videos of Arnel on Youtube. Its where the popular rock group Journey found Arnel. And from there begins the megalosaurus and colorful journey of Arnel.
If only Queen (band who popularized Bohemian Rhapsody) was still active I think they would be haggling with Journey to have Arnel as their lead vocals, Im sure Arnel would also be fitted to be their band lead vocals since Arnel (and Yjoz) loves to sing Queen songs too.
I idolized Arnel Pineda from way way back (early 80’s), during the time Ali Mall was the best mall there is in Manila, he was then performing at Shakeys with the Yjoz Band. The place was full-packed everytime they perform.
And now, year 2008, A dream come true for Arnel, for he has been making waves in the international scene by performing live with the rock band Journey as their lead vocals! The crowd loves him! They feel Arnel has revitalized the group and has been born again. And the band members just feel the same. They feel fortunate to have found Arnel!
” I think Arnel is ‘the business!’ the guy can really sing! He handles the ballads with so much heart, and belts the rockers as hard, and melodically, as anyone I have heard. The songs are sensational – wonderfully crafted and deep, and so focused, you may wonder where they all came from.” from the astounded Kevin Shirley (producer of Revelation)
Journey recently completed a new studio album called “Revelation” which was released on June 3, 2008, in the US.
Watch the video that catches the attention of Neal Schon.
We will be waiting for your concert here in the Philippines Arnel! The Filipinos are very proud of you! 😀
