A year after being named the grand winner of “The Voice Kids,” Lyca Gairanod is still living her dream. Now a grade 3 student, she is busy juggling her studies and performing in gigs.
Early this month, she performed as a special guest in the concert of her former coach Sarah Geronimo in Canada, one of the many places she has been to to sing for people.
“Marami na akong nakilalang kaibigan at napaganda pa lalo ang buhay namin. Sobrang saya po na nakakatulong sa pamilya. Natupad ang pangarap ko at nagpapasalamat talaga ako kay God na tinulungan Niya ako,” said Lyca, who started making a living by scavenging junk before joining “The Voice Kids.”
Aside from the house and lot she got for winning “The Voice Kids,” she has also provided her family with a car.
Besides singing, Lyca also has her eyes on acting. In fact, her performance in her “MMK” life story was well received, and even convinced her to try it again.
“Gustong gusto ko po talagang um-acting kaso hindi na talaga kaya ng schedule, hindi na masiksik. Pero kahit ano mang ibigay sa akin, tanggap lang nang tanggap,” she shared. Aside from gigs and TV guestings, she is also busy with school.
Lyca is also excited for the second season of “The Voice Kids” that will start airing this June. As the country waits for the next grand winner, Lyca offers some advice to those who want to pursue a career in music: “Libre lang naman pong mangarap kaya mangarap na po kayo nang mangarap. Manalo o matalo, congratulations pa rin. Andyan pa rin si Lord.”
She added, “Sana magpakabait sila, huwag nilang kalimutan ang pamilya nila lalong lalo na si God. Magdasal palagi bago kumanta. Huwag lalaki ang ulo at magpakabait lagi.”
Don’t miss the premiere of “The Voice Kids” Season 2 this June on ABS-CBN.
