Journey documentary to air on PBS

The Journey documentary - "Don't Stop Believin': Everyman's Journey" – will air on PBS on September 30.

The film tells the story of how the classic rock band Journey found singer Arnel Pineda online and brought him 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.

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.

The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival in April of 2012, before being released this past March.

Journey return to live action on August 15 in Kinder, Louisiana.
