American rockers Journey have gone down in history after their hit Don’t Stop Believin’ was named the number one single of the 20th Century.

The group’s catchy tune has seen a boost in popularity in recent years after the stars of Glee performed the 1980’s track on its first season in 2009.

The bandmembers performed live on the streets of New York as part of Today’s Summer Concert Series and they were presented with a special plaque to commemorate the feat, which was certified by analysts at media research company Nielsen SoundScan.

Friday was also a big day for fans of 80’s icons Debbie Gibson and I Think We’re Alone Now star Tiffany. The pop duo entertained crowds at Central Park on Good Morning America.

Manny Pacquiao and Journey’s New Lead Singer Have a Lot in Common | Bleacher Report

 

 

As remarkable as this story is Arnel just like the face of boxing’s Manny Pacquiao. They are both from the Philippines and they both have inspiring rags to riches stories of overcoming utter poverty in their homeland.

Pineda, just like Pacquiao, grew up extremely poor in the slums of the Philippines. They both left their homes in their early teens to seek income to provide for their families.

Both lived on the streets and sold what ever he could to survive. According to Pineda’s biography he was sleeping in public parks and benches and would collect bottles and other recyclables for money. Arnel often rationed a Marie biscuit as his meal for two days.
