Arnel Pineda – Now Sings for Peace

Davao City (30 April) — Filipino vocalist of the Journey Band Arnel Pineda is the newest peace champion, awarded by Act for Peace Program head Secretary Jesus Dureza in yesterday’s Panaghoy sa Kalinaw, a concert for peace held at the KCC Mall, General Santos City.

Pineda, a singing sensation who got his break from his performance in the youtube and later got his spot as the lead singer of the Journey, volunteered to sing songs for peace. Before leaving the country for international shows, he opted to join several local bands in the Panaghoy sa Kalinaw. It is aimed to heighten consciousness on peace and conflict and the plight of internally displaced persons.

He was chosen to advocate for peace because of his humble beginnings. Dureza said that persons like him deserve to be emulated as they bring honor and hope for the country. Despite the difficulties he faced along his journey, Pineda proved how hard work has brought him to the top.
