Dear SB19: How A’TIN Cares For The Boys

The group’s fans A’TIN composed of parents, titas, titos, and teens posted heartwarming letters for the group as they embark on their WYAT World Tour.

SB19 found themselves once again trending on social media last Friday, September 23, but not because of their song “Where You At” (WYAT). Members of the group’s fandom A’TIN (pronounced as 18) posted heartfelt letters to them. All letters came from various groups writing on behalf of their parents or grandparents. These include teens, parents, titos and titas, and kids!

One Twitter user, Solid Mahalima wrote: “I’m a 50-year-old A’TIN. Along with my co-tita and senior A’TIN, we feel like we are in the mid-30s because of the energy and inspiration you’re giving. We are here for you, HSH. Retirement is fan girling with SB19.”

Twitter user Ace shared: “Dear SB19, You’ve been through ups and downs already. And it’s quite amazing that you are still here doing what you really want to do. Remember that we are just here to support you, boys.”

Twitter user Butch Tuda said the group has been his source of strength. “Dear SB19, You have been my source of courage and strength during this pandemic. Please know that we appreciate and love you. A’TIN will always be here to support you all the way to World Domination!”

Other fans thanked the group for the music. Moreover, they encouraged them to rest as they prepare for their Where You At (WYAT) World Tour.

Here are a few more letters online.


SB19 on transcending generations

Since their debut in 2018, the boys — Pablo Nase, Ken Suson, Stell Ajero, Justin de Dios, and Josh Cullen Santos — have cemented their status as the Kings of P-Pop Music in the country. The group has performed in sold-out concerts including the kick-off of their WYAT tour last September 17 at the Smart Araneta Coliseum.

It was not only teens who came to watch the concert but those from different generations such as the Millennials, Gen X, and even parents who tagged along with their kids. It’s definitely a clear indication that their music has transcended generations.

The boys are set to take their concert tour in Cebu on October 1, Clark on October 8, and Davao on October 15 before they head to Dubai, the United States, and Singapore for their international performances.
