Ex-Momoland member Nancy McDonie signs with GMA's Sparkle

MANILA, Philippines — Korean-American singer Nancy McDonie, a former member of the disbanded K-pop girl group Momoland, has signed a contract with GMA Network's talent agency Sparkle.

The agency announced Nancy's contract signing on social media, welcoming the newest international star in its roster.

"Get ready to witness her journey as she shines among the brightest stars in the industry!" Sparkle also said in its announcement.

Filipino-Argentine singer Chanty of Lapillus, another Korean girl group, joined Sparkle two years ago having previously been with rival talent agency Star Magic.

Nancy debuted with Momoland in 2016 as its lead vocalist and dancer when she was still a teenager, churning out hits like "Bboom Bboom," "Baam," "I'm So Hot," and "Thumbs Up," before disbanding in early 2023.

The group was popular in the Philippines during its seven-year stint, with many Filipinos noticing Nancy resembling actress Liza Soberano.

The artist was supposed to make her acting debut opposite James Reid — who coincidentally now manages Liza — in the series "The Soulmate Project," but it did push through, the pandemic being a primary reason.

Nancy last visited the Philippines in November 2023 for a one-night concert with fellow Korean artist Lee Seung Gi.
