Filipinos love their songs sung by the original artists no matter how long ago those songs were sung and that’s why you have these musicians coming back for concerts again and again.
Sometimes, their songs are covered endlessly. But then there are times, when you get an artist who may not only be the most covered foreign artist, but has a bubble of fame, a family—and has actually settled down in the Philippines.
Meet Keith Martin, the man who sang “Because of You.” Meet the man himself and know how his song accidentally wound up a huge hit here and how he would end up living here—and much, much more.
Join University of the Philippines professor Pinky Aseron and host Ruel S. De Vera in “Super Random: Because of Keith,” the newest episode of Super Random, an Inquirer Podcast, powered by PumaPodcast, available on Spotify, Apple Podcasts and Anchor.
