Neal Schon performs Don’t Stop Believin’ on America’s Got Talent

Journey guitarist Neal Schon was on hand to perform the Journey smash, “Don’t Stop Believin’”, on the August 24 episode of NBC-TV’s America’s Got Talent.

Schon was joined by Season 14 winner, pianist and singer Kodi Lee, and singer Teddy Swims for the song, in sync with this week’s release of Swims’ version as his latest single.

“Thank you all at @agt for a truly great and memorable time,” shared Schon on social media.

This past spring, “Don’t Stop Believin’” was named as one of 25 sound recordings selected for induction into the US Library Of Congress National Recording Registry, which highlights recordings that are "culturally, historically, or aesthetically significant" and are at least 10 years old.

The second single from Journey’s 1981 album, “Escape”, was a US Top 10 hit and went on to sell more than 7 million copies in the region, with the Library Of Congress describing it as a “perfect rock song, While it has never left the airwaves — or Journey’s set list — the song has gained further cultural permanence via its frequent use at sporting games, in the Broadway rock musical “Rock of Ages” and in film and television, most notably the cryptic final episode of “The Sopranos” and in the debut episode of ‘Glee.’”

“Don’t Stop Believin’” passed 1 billion streams on Spotify last year.
