YouTube…matchmaker for musicians?

What if your favorite band contacted you out of the blue and asked you to be in their band?

Yup, that’s Journey’s official website with an announcement of their new lead singer whom they discovered through YouTube. Crazy, huh? I think it’s pretty cool. Arnel Pineda, the new singer, says he didn’t believe it at first when he was contacted on YouTube by Neal Schon from Journey. I mean, I’d probably be skeptical, too, with all the spammers out there.

Anyway, congratulations, Arnel Pineda! What happened to you is pretty freakin’ awesome.

Pineda is from a band in the Philippines called The Zoo. Here’s the cover of “Faithfully” that got Journey’s attention:
