An exceptional performance paired with her outstanding vocal runs has led Asia’s Soul Supreme KZ Tandingan to earn awards and nominations at the 2022 Awit Awards held on the 23rd of November at the Newport Performing Arts Theater.
KZ Tandingan was awarded the Best Performance by a Female Recording Artist award for her hit single ’11:59′, a song that talks about a couple on the brink of break-up because of piled-up trust issues. KZ together with indie-pop band Ben&Ben received both the awards for Best Collaboration Performance and Best World Music Recording for their collaborative single ‘Sabel’ which is a song for women empowerment.
“It has been more than 2 years since the last time (Awit Awards), so I am really grateful to be with all of you lahat ng mga taong pinapakinggan ko yung music. Even the artists who were known to this industry… Sobrang gagaling niyo lahat!” KZ mentioned as she celebrated her wins with her fellow artists during the music awards night.
KZ was also nominated for the Best Regional Recording Award along with Jonathan Manalo for ‘Dodong’ and People’s Voice Favorite Female Artist award for her passion in music and artistry. Popular music channel MYX held a live show at Venice Piazza at McKinley Hill on Friday, September 23, to unveil the nominees for this year’s awards show.
Other notable names in the music industry were also able to bag multiple awards such as SB19, Leanne & Naara, Zild, and Belle Mariano.
