Nancy McDonie, former member of Momoland, joins Sparkle 

Former Momoland member Nancy McDonie is now part of the Sparkle family!

Sparkle announced the signing through an Instagram post on Monday.

"Sparkle proudly welcomes its new international star, Nancy McDonie, to its diverse and stellar roster of talents," the caption read.

"Get ready to witness her journey as she shines among the brightest stars in the industry! Welcome to Sparkle, Nancy."

Earlier, Sparkle teased fans of the signing with a pink poster etched with the silhouette of the K-pop idol, along with a voice message that says: "Annyeong Sparkle, see you soon!"

This is not the first time that Sparkle has signed a K-pop idol. Chanty of Lapillus joined the roster of Sparkle artists in 2022.

The Korean-American singer, whose real name is Nancy Jewel McDonie, debuted with Momoland in 2016. The group disbanded in February 2023. 

Nancy visited the Philippines in November 2023 for a one-night concert with Korean actor Lee Seung Gi to mark the first anniversary of a Korean Fried Chicken restaurant at the Bonifacio Global City.
