journey's new lead singer

I got an email from one serious Journey fan informing me that the band just hired a new lead vocalist, Arnel Pineda, a Filipino guy who was discovered on YouTube. This is not a joke. From the official Journey website: JOURNEY WELCOMES ARNEL PINEDA WITH "OPEN ARMS" TO THEIR FAMILY AS THE BAND'S NEW LEAD SINGER. Hailing from Quezon City in the Philippines, Arnel has been singing Journey songs for years with his cover band, The Zoo. He replaces Jeff Scott Soto, who parted ways with the band earlier this year. When it was time for Journey to look for a new lead singer, the band looked to the internet and discovered Pineda rockin' it on YouTube. Crazy. It's like out of a movie. Check out this video of the man in action, singing "Faithfully." He ain't no Steve Perry, but damn, it comes pretty close.
