Arnel Pineda invades “The Oprah Winfrey Show.”

After Charice Pempengco’s phenomenal appearances on “The Oprah Winfrey Show,” it was Arnel Pineda’s turn to impress Oprah, one of the world’s most powerful women today.

Pineda and the rest of the members of the American rock band “Journey” recently appeared on Oprah to promote the band’s latest album entitled “Revelation.”

Journey's Filipino front man could not believe that he was being interviewed by no less than Winfrey herself.

"I'm facing you (Oprah) right now. You are [one of the] biggest [names] in show business and I'm facing you. It's like… I'm not allowed to be here but I'm here. And I thank God for that," he said.

The show featured Pineda’s journey “from total obscurity to recapturing the voice of one of the greatest bands of our time."

Pineda’s rags-to-riches story has inspired many people. His life story will be made into a film titled "Don't Stop Believing: Every Man's Journey" that will hit the big screen next year.

The Pinoy singer was discovered on YouTube by Journey’s guitarist Neal Schon. Other band members Jonathan Cain (keyboard), Deen Castronovo (drums) and Ross Valory (bass) were equally impressed when they first watched him on YouTube performing Journey’s “Faithfully.”
