A new Journey documentary has premiered at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival.
"Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" debuted last Thursday. It’s the story of how the band found singer Arnel Pineda online and into the group.
In 2007, Arnel's friend began uploading videos of the aspiring Filipino singer covering classic rock songs onto YouTube. One of them was seen by Neal Schon, guitarist for Journey. Blown away by Pineda's talent and uncanny vocal similarity to former Journey front man Steve Perry, Neal flew Arnel from Manila to San Francisco to audition for the band, and the rest is history.
But Arnel's personal journey had just begun. Having lived life on the street since age 13 with no classical music training, he was anything but prepared for the grueling physical and emotional strains that come from fronting a rock band on a whirlwind world tour.
Can a man who has already overcome so many obstacles deal with the demands of his newfound fame?
A rare behind-the-scenes look at one of America's most beloved rock groups, "Don't Stop Believin'" takes a trip around the world with band members and fans alike, watching as the newest Journeyman converts skeptics and haters into adoring fans—and breathes new life into Journey for the next generation of international listeners.
Asked about what the song “Don’t Stop Believin’” means to him, Pineda said, “That song is the embodiment of my whole life.”

This summer, Journey hit the road for shows across North America with Pat Benatar and Loverboy.
