Arnel Pineda Net Worth $15 Million
From a very young age Arnel’s parents encouraged him to sing, and even to participate in singing contests. Unfortunately, when Pineda was only 13 years old, his mother died and the problems began in his life, as Arnel had nowhere to live, no money and nothing to eat, so for two years he lived on the streets, and survived taking whatever jobs were available. In 1982, while still being only 15 years old, Arnel became part of the group called Ijos, and later joined the group Amo, with whom Arnel was able to achieve popularity and success. This was the base of Pineda’s net worth.
In 1994 Pineda experienced some health problems, which might have ended his career as a singer, but he was able to recuperate and sing again. In 1999 Pineda recorded his debut solo album, called Arnel Pineda, which was a great success and had a huge impact on Arnel Pineda’s net worth. Step by step Arnel became famous in Asia, and later around the world. Due to Arnel’s success, he was noticed by Neal Schon, a member of Journey, who invited Pineda to audition for the group, which was successful, and Arnel became a part of Journey. With this group Pineda has released 3 albums: Revelation, Journey: Live in Manila and Eclipse. The group has also undertaken several tours, an Asian–Hawaiian tour to Japan, the Philippines, China and Hawaii, as well as to Europe besides North America, all of which considerably boosted the groups income – in 2008 alone it was reputedly almost $40 million. Being a part of Journey has certainly positively effected the growth of Arnel’s net worth.
In addition to Arnel’s career as a singer and song writer, he has also appeared in several television shows and in the movie “Don’t Stop Believin’: Everyman’s Journey”, directed by Ramona S. Diaz. Pineda’s appearances on television include such shows as “The Voice of the Philippines”, “The Oprah Winfrey Show”, “The Ellen DeGeneres Show”, “NBC Today Show”, “CBS Early Show”, “Boy and Kris” and many others. All these appearances have also boosted Arnel Pineda’s net worth.
