 A moving rendition by the “Queer of Soul”

“Tawag ng Tanghalan” season 4 grand finalist Makki Lucino gives a new meaning to the emotional ballad “She Used to Be Mine,” as she releases her own rendition of the song under Star Music tomorrow (June 25).


“We want it to serve as a reminder to everyone not to be afraid of change, to always celebrate life, and to embrace one’s age,” said Makki, who initially performed the song while competing in “Tawag ng Tanghalan.”


“Kinanta ko po siya sa ‘Tawag Ng Tanghalan’ bago makapasok ng top 6, 'yung feedback po ay na-touch 'yung mga tao, naiyak sila. 'Yun po 'yung maganda, na I was able to touch other people's hearts,” she added.


Dubbed as the “Queer of Soul,” Makki aims to represent the LGBTQ+ community and inspire Filipinos through her heartfelt performances and music releases—starting with “She Used to Be Mine.”


Written and composed by American singer-songwriter Sara Bareilles for the musical “Waitress,” the track reflects the disconnection one feels between her past and present self, and who she might have become if her circumstances had been different.


Meanwhile after her journey on “Tawag ng Tanghalan,” Makki has also ventured into livestreaming on kumu via “Queer of Soul” every Monday and Wednesday at 6 pm on the SeenZone channel (@seenzonechannel).


Stream Makki’s version of “She Used to Be Mine,” out tomorrow (June 25) on various digital music streaming services. For more details, like Star Music on Facebook ( and follow it on Twitter and Instagram (@StarMusicPH).
