The song Kabilang Buhay is often associated with someone who passed away.
Both celebrities, which have the same birth dates, opted to celebrate it by giving away free bicycles, helmets, smartphones, loading kits, safety vests, manuals, and pocket wifis to selected recipients.
During the celebration, Karen asked Lyca what will she sing and the singer said that the song she’s going to sing once trended on Wish, perhaps referring to Wish 107.5.

“Yung song ko po ay nag-trending dun sa Wish,” Lyca said, and she then proceeded to sing Kabilang Buhay.
In an IG post later, Gretchen said she wondered why Lyca chose that song.
“Hindi ko alam kung nararapat bang “Kabilang Buhay” ang kinanta ni Lyca para kay @iamkarendavila at sa mga bike recipients sa kanilang joint birthday celebration,” Gretchen’s tweet read.
She said, however, that Lyca’s rendition of the song was so beautiful that they no longer minded what the song was all about.
“Pero sa sobrang galing ni Lyca, hindi na namin napansin,” Gretchen said.
A couple of months ago, Karen and Lyca went viral after their video showing shock and surprise at finding out they have the same birth dates spawned dozens of Internet memes.
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 a cash prize, a house and lot, and a recording deal with MCA Music Philippines.
