MANILA – The frontman of the American band Sugar Ray said he got starstruck after meeting Jouney vocalist Arnel Pineda at the “ASAP” studio.
Appearing on the musical variety show on Sunday, Mark McGrath said he did not know what to do when he met Pineda backstage.
“I met Arnel right over there. Arnel Pineda, I am starstruck. I don’t know what to do. He’s representing the Filipinos all over the world. I love Arnel,” he said.
McGrath and the rest of the band are currently in Manila for a one-night concert on Monday at the Araneta Coliseum.
According to McGrath, this is his first time to visit the Philippines and his experience has been overwhelming so far.
“We just got in last night. Everybody is so warm and generous and welcoming. It’s been a long overdue time for Sugar Ray to come here. Thank you for all the love. The Filipino people are so kind,” he said.
McGrath said he cannot wait to perform before all their Filipino fans on Monday and relive the '90s.
“We re looking forward to Monday night at the Araneta Coliseum. You will hear the best songs from the '90s,” he said.
