KAMI learned that Billy opened up about him and his wife, Coleen Garcia, losing work last year due to the ABS-CBN shutdown.
According to the singer-host, he and Coleen thought about leaving the Philippines due to the crisis.
He admitted that it was difficult for him and Coleen to think positively amid the ABS-CBN closure and the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Nung nawalan kami ng trabaho after ABS-CBN, medyo parang at one point… alam mo, may mga times na nag-uusap kaming mag-asawa na, ‘Anong gagawin natin? Iwan na lang ba natin lahat, tapos lipat na lang tayo ng ibang bansa?’
“May mga tipong life decisions na kailangang gawin. Kasi, hindi madali mag-outlook o magtanaw ng positivity sa lahat na negative na nangyayari sa paligid mo,” Billy shared.
The married couple dealt with their problems by praying to God and fully trusting in Him. According to Billy, God answered his prayer as he was able to find projects on TV5.
“Ang number one na natutunan namin is nagtiwala kami sa Panginoon. Nagdasal kami nang todo-todo at iniyakan naming pamilya kung ano talaga ang kailangan naming gawin...
“ I’m just really thankful na meron akong blessing. Meron akong mga shows sa TV5,” he said.
