Don't stop believing... in the Philippines.
The band Journey has donated a whopping $350,000 to typhoon relief in the Philippines, the home country of their lead singer Arnel Pineda. The money will go to the United Nations Food Programme, reports Rolling Stone.
Arnel replaced Steve Perry as the lead singer of Journey after the band saw videos of him singing covers of their songs on YouTube. He, Neal Schon, Jonathan Cain, and the rest of the band members all dug into their pockets to help support the Philippines, which was ravaged by Typhoon Haiyan last week. An estimated 3,600 people were killed during the storm, with hundreds of thousands more missing, injured, or homeless.
It's great to see a group of celebrities support the Filipino relief efforts. Hopefully more will join them.
