“Kung ibabalik po sa dati, sobrang hirap po, pati na rin po sa family ko. Actually po, siyempre madami po kami, talagang lahat po kami nagtatrabaho, yung papa ko nangingisda,” Lyca revealed.
Karen then went on to ask how is it that Lyca’s father later turned into a scavenger like her and her mom.
“Kasi sabi niya try niya daw pong sumama sa amin. Sabi ko masaya naman mangalakal kasi parang bonding din po ng family,” Lyca explained.
The journalist then asked if it was difficult to scavenge for empty bottles and old newspapers.
“Yes po. Minsan kahit mainit, kahit tirik yung araw, nangangalakal po kami,” Lyca bared.
The singing champ then went on to say that even though life is very difficult then, she never lost hope that someday her fate would change.
“Nagtiwala na rin lang ako sa Panginoon kung hanggang saan yung kaya ko. Parang sa kanya na lang po ako bumase kung ano yung magiging hantong ng pangarap ko,” Lyca told Karen during the interview.
The full interview of Lyca Gairanod where she talks about her life then and how she is seven years after winning The Voice Kids can be found on Karen Davila’s YouTube channel.
Lyca Jane Epe Gairanod, better known as Lyca Gairanod, is a Pinay singer and actress. She was born on November 21, 2004 in Tanza, Cavite where her father worked as a fisherman while her mother scavenged for old newspapers and used bottles with Lyca helping her when she grew a bit older. Lyca used to sing for her neighbors so they would give her food or money. She joined the first edition of The Voice Kids Philippines, where she won cash prize, a house and lot, and a recording deal with MCA Music Philippines.
Lyca, who is only 16 years old, has another life achievement recently. The singer took to social media and posted a photo of her and her "new baby." It was a brand new car which is another fruit of the young celebrity’s hard work. Her delighted followers then congratulated Lyca for her recent car purchase.
The singing sensation also showed on her vlog another one of the fruits of her labor, which is a house for her family. The singer shared that the house in her vlog is very near the house that she grew up in. According to Lyca, her house is not big and luxurious but it is enough for her and her family. Additionally, Lyca hinted that she might be renovating the house soon to make it better.
