    Hello Arnel,

    My name is John Martin and I am the Public Relations Co-Chair for 2015 Spring Conference “Lakas Loob: Strength Without Shame” hosted by the non-profit organization, the Filipino Intercollegiate Networking Dialogue, Inc. (FIND Inc.)

    The goal of our conference is to face the unspoken issues in our Filipino/Filipino-American communities today. We want to face our weaknesses head on and take away the shame that is so very much associated with them that we become strong. But we would like to do it together.

    I have watched your documentary “Don’t Stop Believin': Every Man’s Journey” and I could personally relate to some of the emotions you went through. But, of course, you prevailed and it made you so strong that you weren’t ashamed of who you were or where you came from. I think you are a perfect example for anyone who attends this conference. You could really empower the hearts of many who attend this conference which is what I want for them to take out of this. What I’m really trying to say is that I invite you to come and be a speaker for us.

    For a little information about FIND:

    Founded on April 11, 1992, the Filipino Intercollegiate Networking Dialogue (FIND) stands as a symbol to the ethnic consciousness presently seen on university campuses. With the growing number of Filipino organizations at these institutions, there exists an inherent “desire to know” about one’s culture. Ranging from the personal search and identification to the large scale social awareness, FIND Inc. is an organization that opens the door to communication and collaboration among its members. It offers those interested an opportunity to see what else is out there: a broad perspective to the increasing Filipino presence in America.

    Our website is currently down, but it should be back up and running within the next week at http://www.findinc.org/

    I hope to hear back and that you could make it!

    Sincerely,

    John Martin

    Hi Arnel! You are a great story- my son, Zack, a long time ago made Don’t Stop Believing his Mantra-Played football in high school, broke his leg before the state finals- done! Played in college, found he had a condition that made him stop- done! He cheered his last 2 yrs of college! Went to OCS for the USMC- got injured and had to be discharged- done again!! But he still believes something great is going to happen- all he wanted for Christmas was tickets to the concert in Columbia, SC.He will be on row 2 on the floor and we can’t wait to hear how it goes!! You guys keep making great music- Love It!!! All the Best!!

    Hi Arnel, see your story last night on a cable channel, and I loved it I also like your voice, I’m not a fan of rock, never listen to Journey… But I’m sure you will hear from the date you entered the band … Congratulations on the successes achieved, I’m your new fan of “Peru”, I hope they can come to Peru … Goodbye :)

    • Bonnie

      Arnel, Owe is absolutely beautiful and you sing it so perfectly. Thank you once again for gifting us with your amazing voice and talent!

    • Becky

      Hi Knellsky! How’s it goin’? I know there are probably times when you’d rather hang out with your family, or work on that new album, but we can’t wait to welcome you back to the States (and Canada and Mexico, too)!! Your “second family” awaits you–and the rest of the J-Boys–with OPEN ARMS for Tour 2015…see you soon!!!! :-)

      • Bonnie

        Hi Becky, getting close to the concert! I so envy you as it turns out I’m not going to be able to go to the NOLA concert either. I am soooo disappointed and sad. Would loved to have come to Austin to meet you and go to the concert with you and that won’t work out either. However I really do want to meet you so maybe sometime early spring or will you be in Europe then? Whenever, just would like to get together. I can’t wait to hear about the concert!

        • Becky

          Howdy, B-Girl…I left a message for you in the chat box :-)

  • Becky

    I LOVE Ferdie Arquero’s new photos of Arnel (at the bottom of his home page)…Keep ‘em comin’ Ferdie!! (And doesn’t AP look sharp in that red jacket, AND the black leather one!!)

    Hi Arnel, I watched your video and I cried big buckets of tears of joy for you. WOW! You are one of God’s angels. I mean that seriously. People who are transparent like you are rare. You are very special. They did such a great documentary on your life. It was so sensitive to your needs as well as being honest. This life is never easy but I see your fight to have your family and your career. I hope that she gets to travel with you sometimes. Also I am glad you are able to help those people who are in need from where you are from. Anyway, I send virtual hugs to you and your family and I am trying to figure out which concert I am going to see this year. I listened to Journey in the 80’s and I am not one about looking to the past for my musical inspiration, I try to be present as to what is happening today. But what I can say is what you are doing IS about now. You make the music FRESH, it’s like hearing it for the first time but at the same time being brought back to when I listened to it as a teenager and just loving it as much, but also like discovering it as if it were NEW! Love it! All the best to you and the band. I pray that all of you are safe, healthy and just remember that people love you guys and want the best for you.

    Congrats for that well-written, beautifully composed song. Not to say the vocals are superb. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6w2qD7_gi0

    Arnel, this is what my son Luke and I are making. (Rap)
    Hope you like it!
    Your living life, feeling like your all alone.

    Your dreams are crushed, and it’s cut you right to the bone.
    Your heart is heavy, like a weight pressed on your chest,

    feeling like you can’t breathe, can’t see, can’t step
    Frozen, stuck in place, feeling that you lost your way
    in your heart you’re crying out, does anyone hear you scream!
    You know, life is hard, feeling like a raging Sea,
    Out there in the crashing waves,

    Hold on, just believe.

    Sometimes it’s hard, to live a life in faith,

    and trust Him in a way
    He’ll gonna see you through the race.
    But all along, I know, God will make a way-
    his love goes on and on and on and on

    Those who’s hope is on the Lord our God, Shall renew there strength
    They will soar in the sky flying high like an eagle.
    As they run in the race of their life they will not be dismayed.
    They will walk by faith, not by site and not grow faint.

    Don’t you worry what tomorrow brings,
    cuz we know that in all things
    God works for the good of those who love him,

    and those that trust him Will never be ashamed,

    Even if they walk through the darkest valley,
    They will fear no evil; they say God is with me.

    He’ll give you strength everyday,

    his love goes on and on and on and on

    Those who’s hope is on the Lord our God, Shall renew there strength
    They will soar in the sky flying high like an eagle.
    As they run in the race of their life they will not be dismayed.
    They will walk by faith, not by site and not grow faint.
    Don’t stop Believin’
    It’s more than just a feelin’
    God loves people
    Don’t stop Believin’
    It’s more than just a feelin’
    God loves people
    Don’t stop Believin’
    It’s more than just a feelin’
    God loves people
