NHI objects on Arnel Pinade’s “version” of Lupang Hinirang

In the Previous Fight of Manny Pacquiao, it was Arnel Pineda who sang our National Anthem. But the Journey lead singer was now facing a complaint from National Historic Institute for allegedly changing the tone and tempo of Lupang Hinirang. Accordinh to NHI, Pineda’s version was not at a  marching pace as the law requires and he raised pitch near the end of the song, which was a clear NO-NO.

It wasn’t the first time that the artist who sang at a Pacquiao fight. Martin Nievera was one of those. It become an issue nor in the joke who will be the one to sing at Pacquiao’s fight. There were only (i guess) few (or none) singers that had made it perfect.
