MANILA, Philippines – Success can fill some people with illusions of grandeur. The hallelujahs can be deafening, humble beginnings and humbler friends become things of the past.

Not for Journey member Arnel Pineda, who Oprah Winfrey herself interviewed in her popular show after the top American band chose him to replace one of its vocalists. Instead of squandering his hard-earned money in useless things, Pineda wants to spend some of it on streetchildren.

“It’s payback time,” he says at the recent opening of Empire Superclub and Taboo Room at the Ortigas Home Depot Complex, Julia Vargas St., Pasig. “I want to create a street school for kids.”

Pineda is in Manila for a short vacation before he returns to the US for a grueling four months of 72 shows one after the other. He will also join Journey in a new album to be released in May 2010.
