Happy 8th Birthday, YouTube!


Eight years ago, YouTube was born with the very first uploaded video, “Me at the Zoo” shot by jawed at the San Diego Zoo.

As the music world knows by now, YouTube had an integral part in Arnel Pineda’s rise to fame. YouTube’s history indicates that Arnel – singing with his band Zoo – was discovered around the time when the video hosting company launched in some countries outside the USA. Later that year in December, 720p HD format was introduced – the same month Arnel was formally announced as lead singer of Journey. Whether these highlights in the growth of YouTube have any significance in Arnel’s and Journey’s reach across the planet is undetermined… but truly worth noting!

Just as Arnel looks great on YouTube (HD or not), YouTube looks great on Arnel!
