After bagging a Billboard nom and recently topping the Hot Trending Songs chart, SB19 has a new name to add to their mounting pile of feats: official ambassadors.
The National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) announced that the five-member group has been appointed as the “Youth and Sentro Rizal Ambassador,” thanks to their efforts in promoting Filipino music and culture around the globe.
In a Facebook post, the commission’s official statement reads:
“SB19 was chosen to be the NCCA Youth Ambassadors and face of Sentro Rizal not only because of their growing fanbase and influence in the local and international scenes, but also of their willingness to support the NCCA’s endeavors, as well as for their genuine care for advocacies to uplift the Filipino spirit, music and culture to the global scene, which is in line with the NCCA’s mandate to promote Philippine arts and culture worldwide.”
The P-pop group’s members Pablo, Josh, Justin, Ken, and Stell will be repping Sentro Rizal, the country’s cultural center for overseas Filipinos and anyone interested in all things Filipino. What can we say? SB19 and A’TINs keep winning.
