Filipina singer-songwriter Keiko Necesario’s version of Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now” was featured in the British TV hit drama series, “Ackley Bridge.”

United Kingdom’s longest running television series featured the Filipina musician’s song cover in Episode 8 of Ackley Bridge’s third season which premiered on June 18.

Necesario confirmed on social media that her 2016 YouTube song cover of one of the most known songs of the iconic Joni Mitchell is on the British TV hit drama.

“I love Joni Mitchell! So to have my version played in a show from a different country is an honor to say the least,” wrote Necesario on Instagram.

The Pinay musician also tweeted about her happiness at hearing the Canadian singer heard her cover of the song, Both Sides Now.

Ackley Bridge’s producer Alex Lamb said in ABS-CBN report that Necesario’s cover matched what they are looking for – “a familiar song but with a modern stripped-back feel, which appeals the old and the young audience.”

According to Lamb, “the haunting and captivating voice of Necesario pushes the emotion of the scene of the British drama series.”

Keiko Necesario broke into the Philippine music industry after joining PhilPop in 2012 with a song called “3 AM” which was interpreted by Marié Digby. She has since risen as one of the most well-known indie singer-songwriters in the local music circuit.
