Nancy McDonie, a former member of the recently disbanded K-pop girl group 'Momoland,' is now a certified Kapuso as Sparkle GMA Artist Center formally welcomed her into its growing roster of talented artists on Monday, April 1.

Through its social media accounts, the premiere talent management agency of the Kapuso network welcomed the Korean-American performer, whose real name is Nancy Jewel McDonie, into its growing family of talented stars. 

“Sparkle proudly welcomes its new international star, Nancy McDonie, to its diverse and stellar roster of talents,” it stated. 

Sparkle has been teasing fans the past couple of days regarding the announcement, hinting at an impending “K-pop idol joining its roster of powerhouse and diverse talents.”

Nancy was previously a member of Momoland, a South Korean girl group formed in 2016 that popularized hit songs such as “Bboom Bboom,” and “BAAM.” The group later disbanded in February 2023.

The 23-year-old singer-actress was born in 2000 to an American soldier and a Korean armed forces volunteer.

Her signing with Sparkle GMA Artist Center further marks the Kapuso network's continued efforts to expand reach and explore a wider market of talent.
