A'TIN International has never been prouder!

P-pop boy group SB19 recently concluded their first US concert in New York for their ''SB19 WYAT (Where You At)" world tour, and their visit was nothing short of momentous.

For their first stop in the Big Apple, SB19 first paid a visit to the Consul General of the Philippines in New York, Elmer Cato. Donned in sharp Barong Tagalongs and their signature winning smiles, Cato also couldn't help but show love to the boy group.

As the Youth and Sentro Rizal Ambassadors of the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA), SB19 also expressed their support to Cato and the rest of the Philippine New York officials by performing one of their hit songs, "Mapa." 

"We are committed to promoting Filipino genius and culture, especially music, on the global stage," the group shared on Twitter.

A few days later, they proceeded to make history by making their US television debut on the morning show Good Day New York, where they performed their English hit single "WYAT (Where You At)."

With their in-sync moves and undoubtable star power, Pablo, Stell, Ken, Josh, and Justin took over the stage and even gathered a few fans upon leaving the Fox5 studios.

Netizens also gushed in the comments section of their performance.

"Not a fan but a supporter, grabe pang-international level talaga ang performance nila! Apakaganda pa nung kanta!" one netizen commented.

"The Fil-Am community is so proud of SB19. Raise our flag! We are here to support you in this journey to bring OPM in the global scene," another said.

Finally, they concluded their momentous New York visit with their first US concert held at the Palladium Times Square on Nov. 6.

The boys sang, danced, and wowed the crowd with their hottest tracks such as "WYAT (Where You At)," "Bazinga," "Mapa," and more at the 2,100-capacity theater. At one point, they also teased a return to the city that never sleeps.

"A slice of Big Apple? We finally got it!" they shared on Instagram with photos of the show.

"That show was definitely a blast! A huge thank you to all of you for coming! We hope that ain't the last. See you in the future!"

Meanwhile, SB19 is jetting off next to Los Angeles and Singapore for the next run of their world tour.

They've since held other concerts for the tour in Manila, Cebu, Clark, Davao, and Dubai.
