Arnel Pineda to Sing National Anthem on Pacquiao-Clottey Fight


arnel-pinedaWhen everyone thought that it is singing sensation Charice Pempengco who is set to sing the National Anthem of the Philippines on the WBO Welterweight bout of Manny Pacquiao against Ghanian Joshua Clottey on March 13, 2010, well, it is not her.

Pinoy frontman of the rock band “Journey” Arnel Pineda was the one commissioned by Pacquiao’s camp to sing the National Anthem during his fight at the Cowboy’s Stadium in Texas.

Pupunta ako sa Dallas to sing sa laban ni Manny [Pacquiao]. This Thursday [ang alis ko]. 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.

Hope this time around no more issue will be raised against the singing of the National Anthem as what had previously happened with La Diva and others.

    well, good for him..another international exposure for Arnel P. Surely, he’ll make us proud again.

    just a piece of advise – do not change the “melody” of the national anthem. Just follow the original marching beat. 😉

    as for charice, we still have the Pacquiao-Mayweather bout before PacMan retires. hehe

      I agree Cee-Jay, wag lang gawing rock ang national anthem at baka siya naman ang susunod na makatanggap ng “power punches” mula sa National Historical Institute. LOL!

      Hay, asa pa sa Mayweather na yan, napalaking duwag, bakla…kung gaano kalaki ang bunganga na siya raw ang pinakamagaling, ganun na naman kaliit ang bayag labanan si Manny…that if kung meron…LOL! hik hik hik
