Nina's third album "Nina Live!" already sold an incredibly 200,000 copies after its released on February 25, 2005 making Nina the first Pinoy Female singer who was awarded with a Diamond Record Award.
"Nina Live!" consists of love songs from the 1970s to the 1990s, all of which Nina has covered live. After a week from its commercial release, the album reached Gold record and Platinum after three weeks. It is considered to be the biggest-selling album by a female artist in the Philippines, which reached a certification of 10x Platinum (Diamond). It is also the fourth biggest selling album of an OPM artist, only behind Eraserheads' Cutterpillow (10x Platinum) and Jose Mari Chan's Christmas In Our Hearts (20x Platinum) and Constant Change (10x Platinum).
The award was absolutely a big feat considering the rampant music piracy here in the Philippines making any artist so difficult to achieved even a gold record status.
In an interview, Nina said "Sobrang overwhelming, sobrang saya. It�s just like a dream� Siguro, ito �yong pinaka-favorite ng lahat ng tao, that I sing live. Siguro kaya nagustuhan nila, kaya tinangkilik nila ito. Sobrang big achievement for me."
The award was handed to Nina last Sunday on ASAP '09.
