In this year of the coronavirus, Journey lead singer Arnel Pineda sends this gift to his fans- a Christmas song of hope.
According to MXDWN, This Christmas- A Beacon of Hope is inspired by not only the pandemic, but also the Taal Volcano eruption in January in the Philippines and the typhoon which hit the country in November.
“The Year 2020 has brought many challenges for all of us: Taal Volcano eruption in January, Typhoon Vamco/Ulysses in November and the ongoing COVID crisis,” said Pineda. “Every single one of you has played the hero one way or another. Thank you for your commitment and dedication. Thank you for your collaboration, compassion and courage. Thank you for providing exceptional care and – most importantly – thank you for giving us hope during these uncertain times. APFI volunteers and donors have been – and are still – doing what we can with all that we have”
APFI is Pineda’s foundation-Arnel Pineda Foundation, Inc. which benefits underprivileged children.
