Arnel Pineda sang the National Anthem of the Philippines on March 13, 2010 during the Pacquiao vs Clottey fight held at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, Texas. His rendition was awe-inspiring despite the controversy that it earned due to the slight twist at the last three notes of the last line of the anthem. Arnel Pineda's princely and dignified deameanor is also very commendable and that he sang 'from the heart' as he promised days prior to "The Event." It is a great achievement for Arnel Pineda that the stadium crowd of fifty one thousand boxing fans and millions more around the world were able to hear our National Anthem sang with great pride and fervor! Arnel Pineda once more made the Filipinos proud. He is truly a Filipino patriot, the 'pride' of the Philippines.
