Arnel Campaner Pineda is a Filipino singer and songwriter. He came to prominence in the Philippines during the 1980s and internationally in 2007 as the lead singer of the American rock band Journey.
Being a great singer is more than range (Arnel's is huge), timbre (he has rasp when he needs it and clarity as well). It is how you interpret the lyrics and connect with your audience. When you hear him sing on a recording, you feel he is singing to you. When you see him in person, you KNOW he is singing to you. He is not just putting on a performance (and his performances, indeed, demonstrate the energy, fervor and gymnastics of someone half his age), but establishing and maintaining a connection with his audience. Plus, he is a very humble, down to earth person who appreciates everything he has.
Arnel Pineda is passionate, loving, caring, down to earth and his life's journey has been an inspiration. He is an optimist who makes opportunities of his difficulties and he will be remembered as a blessing to everyone. - globetrotter53
He certainly deserves to be higher up this list. He is probably the finest rock singer of the 21st century. Vocal quality, range, technique, showmanship and charisma combined in one singer in this level is rare. He does justice not only to Journey songs but many other classic rock and power ballads, even songs sang by female artists like Anne Wilson and Adele.
His vocal range is out of this world! Hard rock, soul rock, ballad, power ballad, name it... From Air Supply, Sting, Foreigner, Heart, Bryan Adams, Queen, etc. He can sing anything. Awesome!
An excellent singer can be determined by his vocal range, versatility, stage presence, voice quality, and rich voice timber. He is also the Best singer with the way he conducts himself, his humility amidst his fame and fortune. His concern for his fans and his inherent goodness. I have seen only one singer, who embodies all of these, and that is Arnel Pineda. My hats off for this outstanding total performer!
Go vote for Arnel Pineda!
Let's move him up!
Why he's now on the #15?!
He's the best because whether in concert or recording, his vocals are astounding! He has a powerful voice that transmits when he sings. He sings with passion and emotion; not many singers can do this. He has great showmanship and stage presence. You've got to watch him perform to feel how it truly feels to be in the presence of a great singer!

Arnel is the best... He can sing anything and he has a powerful voice and very energetic... When he sing he put he's feeling in it... Arnel is the best ever...
Arnel Pineda is truly gifted. Always compared to Steve Perry, who has fine, high-pitched voice sometimes androgenous, Pineda has great vocal range, sometimes raspy, definitely male. As a performer, he energizes his audience, he draws them into the song, he caresses his audience with his voice, engages them, smiles at them happily, all at once naughty and vulnerable. I hear he's also a generous and gracious guy.
Arnel is amazing singer. Can sing all ballad and classic songs. His voice is very powerful. He brings new life to the band Journey. No Arnel no journey today.
New Front man of Journey. He's got the monster voice. Simply amazing and incomparable.
