I Heart Arnel June 6, 2008Posted by smooregasbord in Music.
I’ve been a long time fan of Journey. With hits like Faithfully, Don’t Stop Believin’, Send Her My Love, and (my personal fave) Lights (a tribute to my favorite city), what’s not to love?! With the departure of lead singers Steve Perry, Steve Augeri, and Jeff Scott Soto, how was a girl gonna get her Journey fix? Enter Journey’s new lead singer, Arnel Pineda. A native of the Phillipines, Arnel was discovered on YouTube while singing with his cover band, The Zoo. I know what you’re thinking, “How can a dude from the Phillipines rival the sound of Stevel Perry?” Don’t ask me how, just know that he does. Arnel’s voice is unbelievable and if you close your eyes, you’d think Steve was singing right there in front of you. Arnel also does a mean version of Roxanne and Message in a Bottle from The Police. You can see more videos of his cover band here. Rock on, Arnel!!
