Journey's Arnel Pineda

There are people who view life as a challenge. Others view it as a dream. Yet, some people view life as difficult. We experience problems in this life to remind us that we were just given an opportunity to live here on earth by God. Since, not all people believe in God, there is no need to debate on the matter. As long as each person strives to survive here on earth, we all have a chance.

The society nowadays is full of trials and problems. The economic problem is worsening and news that crime rate is increasing continues to exist. The greatest problem to fight with this time is poverty.

Speaking of poverty, I know someone who managed to become successful despite poverty problems. In the field of music, this person is very active. His name is Arnel Pineda. I was amazed on his life story that was featured on televisions and the Internet. Arnel Pineda was discovered in You Tube when a friend uploaded his videos in one of his provincial shows. Guitarist of legendary band Journey named Neal Schon discovered him in You Tube just in time for his search for the next front man of Journey. The point is that Arnel never stopped dreaming despite being homeless for years. His love for music is undying, probably because his deceased mother taught him the mystery of music. It was reported that Arnel’s mother inspired him to learn singing. Indeed, Arnel Pineda is not just lucky; he signed up to fate and worked hard for it. As a result, reality comes in that he would become Journey’s new front man, and fate is just a matter of perseverance and faith.

Lastly, music is the means by which Arnel was blessed with abundance in life. Because of his love in singing, he was fated to become famous. Knowing that Arnel Pineda is a Filipino, an Asian at that, it was not impossible for anyone to be discovered to be part of the music industry. With the right attitude and focus, life may be turned into an interesting story to beacon with.
