A “Journey” man to the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

Arnel Pineda, the popular Filipino lead singer of the American rock band, “Journey”, will be on the March 13th Pacquiao vs Clottey bout to sing the Philippine National anthem, “Lupang Hinirang”, on the ceremony before the main event card of “The Event”.

Arnel Pineda confirmed this in an exclusive interview with in this article. Pineda said that he was invited by Pacquiao to sing “Lupang Hinirang” in his upcoming welterweight bout. Here’s what he said on the interview,

“Pupunta ako sa Dallas to sing sa laban ni Manny [Pacquiao].This Thursday [ang alis ko].” (I am going to Dallas this Thursday to sing in Pacquiao’s fight.), Pineda said.

“I’m really happy kasi matutuloy na. Nahihiya na ako kay Manny kasi pangatlong invitation na ito sa akin. Baka kasi isipin ay iniisnab ko. So finally, matutuloy na.” (This is my third invitation from Manny who might think I’m snubbing him. I’m happy this is finally pushing through), he said.

I’m also glad that Arnel Pineda will sing the Philippine National anthem. Two world famous Filipinos performing in the world’s largest dome, the Cowboys Stadium! That’s great!
