MANILA — Journey, including its Filipino vocalist Arnel Pineda, performed over the weekend as part of a fundraiser for the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).
The US rock band performed its enduring hit "Don't Stop Believin'" through a virtual gathering of six musicians, including Randy Jackson.
It was among the performances in the one-hour special, "UNICEF Won't Stop," that aired in the US on May 23. Other acts who participated in the event were Cher, Rod Stewart, Sting, and Sheryl Crow, among others.
The fundraiser aims to supply personal protective equipment to frontline workers, as well as other essentials for disadvantaged children.
Prior to the coronavirus pandemic, Pineda had been gearing up for a collaboration with "Crazy Rich Asians" director Jon Chu and Hollywood film company Warner Bros., to produce a biopic following his rise to fame as Journey's new frontman.
