Arnel Pineda, the Filipino lead singer of the popular American rock band “Journey,” will sing the Philippine national anthem in Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao’s much-awaited fight with Ghanaian Joshua “The Grand Master” Clottey on March 13 (March 14 in Manila) at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, Texas.

Pineda was invited by Pacquiao to sing “Lupang Hinirang” in this upcoming fight.

“I’m really happy, this is my third invitation from Manny and I’m happy this is finally pushing through,” he said.

The crooner said he was not able to sing in Pacquiao’s previous fights because of his hectic schedule as Journey’s vocalist.

Aside from singing in the Pacquiao-Clottey bout, Pineda is also set to fly back to US this coming April to record the latest album of Journey.
