Arnel Pineda is the current front man of the legendary rock band Journey. His 22-year old son Angelo Pineda joins ‘Idol Philippines,’ witholding the information from the judges of “Idol Philippines” that he is the son of the singer.
Angelo said he wanted to make his father proud, whom he doesn’t see that much because his parents separated while he was still young.
Angelo sings ‘Heaven’ by Bryan Adams during the auditions. But his performance did not impress all of the Idol Philippines judges, managing to get only 3 yes votes from Moira dela Torre, Regine Velasquez, and James Reid. Vice Ganda gave him 10 seconds to try and win him over. Angelo’s insistence, however, of singing “Heaven” again did not sit well with the comedian, who stuck with his earlier verdict of saying no to him.
Getting 3 yes votes was enough for Angelo to get a Golden Ticket to Idol City.
Angelo’s audition was interesting because all of the judges got the surprise when they learned in the end that his father is no less than singer and songwriter Arnel Pineda.
