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.

Arnel Pineda's a capella rendition of "Lupang Hinirang" may be a good part of this 'remix' of three Filipino patriotic songs/anthems ~ "O Bayan Ko" (lyrics by Ryan Cayabyab), "Bayan Ko" (lyrics by Jose Corazon de Jesus) and "Lupang Hinirang" (lyrics by Julian Felipe).

This is another video of "Lupang Hinirang" by Arnel Pineda taken by cjarvis333 from the stadium crowd. The loud cheering at the last line of the anthem, ..."ang mamatay ng dahil sa iyo!" is the loudest in this video. The spontaneous cheering drowned out the twist on the last notes which earned Arnel Pineda the ire of NHI and sparked a controversity that kept the cyber world abuzz for days now.

This video was from Rip Rokken, a loyal Arnel Pineda fan and affiliated with the official site at arnelpinedarocks. The video demonstrates the enthusiastic reaction from the massive crowd of 51,000 at the stadium.

The video is courtesy of vimeo at their website:

It is noted that there is also a very tiny twist of the last notes of "Lupang Hinirang" in this rendition. The video quality is fantastic and the featured images featuring different 'native' costumes makes the viewing spectacular.

Arnel Pineda's rendition of "Lupang Hinirang" at the Pacquiao-Clottey fight has similarities to the version that was sang in the 1980's to 1990's. Here is one such rendtion in a video courtesy of NinoyAquinoTV at YouTube:
