A five-member group composed of John Paulo B. Nase, Josh Cullen A. Santos, Stellvester Q. Ajero, Felip Jhon D. Suson, and Justin T. De Dios, SB19 is making headway in the international music scene with its introduction of P-Pop (Pinoy/Philippine) music, through songs such as MAPA, Hanggang Sa Huli, and Tilaluha. SB19’s music videos have been viewed as many as 78 million times with its hit, MAPA (a portmanteau of “mama” and “papa”), which honors Filipino parents for the sacrifices they endure for their children. Nase, the leader of the group, has a father who is an Overseas Filipino Worker in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
While in New York, SB19 had its first ever live appearance on American television on Fox 5’s morning show, “Good Day New York,” on Friday, 04 November 2022, and concluded its New York leg with a successful concert held at Palladium Times Square on Saturday, 12 November 2022, which was attended by fans, some of whom travelled as far away as Canada, the Caribbean Islands, and the United Kingdom.
A promotional video of SB19 for Sentro Rizal New York was filmed to be published soon on the official website and social medial platforms of Post. Discussions have also begun to have SB19 grace the Philippine Independence Day Parade along Madison Avenue during the 125th anniversary of Philippine Independence.
