ABS-CBN singers Nadine Lustre, Moira Dela Torre, and Darren Espanto bagged several awards at the MYX Music Awards 2019 held at Vertis Tent in Quezon City.
Nadine took home four big awards, including the Music Video of the Year award for her song "St4y Up" wherein she also served as executive producer.
Nadine was hailed Artist of the Year and Female Artist of the Year.
The 25-year-old’s rendition of the Sugarfree classic "Prom" with her real-life boyfriend James Reid also won the Media Soundtrack of the Year award for their movie Never Not Love You.
"This is a big surprise for me. I would like to thank all the JaDine fans who voted for me, all our supporters. To James, of course, thank you for writing this beautiful, beautiful song. Thank you so much, MYX,” said Nadine in her acceptance speech.
