Last October, KZ Tandingan released her first international single “11:59” after collaborating with Grammy-nominated producer Lugo Gonzales who also composed the song. This month, the song reached 100,000 streams online and KZ became one of the Spotify Equal cover artists that landed her on the global streaming app’s digital billboard at New York City’s iconic Times Square.

The 29-year-old singer followed it up with another post about how grateful she feels to have reached a new milestone in her career. She also asked her followers based in New York to share photos of her billboard since she can’t travel there to see it in person. 

She wrote,

“WHAT-A-WEEK *photo dump

“My heart is full. ❤️ I don’t know what I did to deserve these people, achievements and moments but I am grateful, Lord. When I find myself doubting the path and questioning my abilities, I will look at these photos to remember that Your plans are always greater than mine.
“Thank you.
