A Great Consular Story: Arnel Pineda

Today's CBS Sunday Morning featured a story on Arnel Pineda, the new singer for Journey. We first heard of this story through the A-100 pre-acceptance Yahoo group. The consular officer that processed his visa in the Phillipines told the first person account of him at the window. She didn't believe him at first, an audition with the band Journey does seem a bit fantastical, but she asked him to sing "Wheel in the Sky" and he belted out vocals like she had never heard before.

It was very interesting to hear his story, text transcript at:

and there are a bunch of his performance videos on YouTube:
