"Nandito Ako" was recorded by Mexican singer/actress Thalía, and released in early 1997. Thalia was very popular in the Philippines at the time after starring in the hit series Marimar, which was broadcast there in 1996. Like the original, the song is sung in Tagalog and was released as the lead single from her Philippine album, Nandito Ako. Thalia's version subsequently became a huge hit in the Philippines, along with her previous album, En éxtasis.
In 2011, David Archuleta recorded a version of the song for the Filipino mini series of the same name, Nandito Ako, where it served as the show's theme song. The song was later included in his fourth studio album titled Forevermore.
