Lyca Gairanod on her first album: ‘Mahalaga sa pamilya ko ito’


110614-lyca_main.jpgAfter emerging as The Voice Kids grand champion earlier this year, Lyca Gairanod has been wowing audiences left and right with her small frame and big talent. The nine-year-old powerhouse admitted her family has always encouraged her to sing. “Nung seven years old ako, bata pa ako nung nalaman nila mama na sumasayaw at kumakanta ako, sinali nila ako sa The Voice. Ayaw pa sana ni mama, pinilit ko pa siya. Kasi napanood ng kuya ko na merong The Voice Kids. Dinadasal ko po yun. Pinapanuod ko rin at dinadasal ko na merong pang-bata and natupad yung wish ko. Tapos dasal ako ng dasal. Nung unang blind audition ko hindi ako nakuha tapos dun sa isa naman dun na ako nakuha at nag-tuloy tuloy,” she shared during The Voice Kids All-In Concert presscon held last October 30 in Jollibee Ortigas.

After being under the tutelage of her coach Sarah Geronimo, Lyca said she has learned a lot of important lessons. “Sana daw po huwag akong kakabahan, enjoy lang daw po at saka huwag daw sisigaw, dahan dahan lang. At dapat galing daw sa puso. Lagi daw magdadasal at nakatutuok sa taas, huwag pababayaan yung taas kasi nandoon ang Panginoon natin. Ngayon minsan nakakalungkot na hindi namin masyado kasama yung mga coach namin,” she admitted.

The young girl from Tanza, Cavite said she has a simple dream for her and her family. “Sana makapag-aral kaming magkakapatid at saka sana hindi kami magkakahiwalay na buong pamilya, masaya pag gabi at ayaw ko sa mga kapatid ko na nag-aaway, dahil siguro sa akin kasi hindi ko sila mini-makeup-an (laughs). Gusto ko rin maging masaya,” she added.

Apart from the upcoming one-night only The Voice Kids All-In Concert on December 6 at the PICC Plenary Hall, Lyca said she is also excited for her fans to experience the newly-released The Voice Kids album. “Dun sa concert namin meron kaming sorpresa sa inyo. Ma-e-excite po kayo sa lahat ng gagawin namin. Special guest namin dito si kuya Mitoy Yonting at Klarisse de Guzman. First time ko magka-album, kasama ko yung top six. Mahalaga sa pamilya ko ito. Yung album namin mahalaga sa kanila at saka nagpapasalamat ako sa gumawa niyan at sa lahat ng fans ko sa The Voice at sa lahat ng bumili ng album namin. Bibili ako ng album ko!” she said.

110614-lyca_main.jpgApart from the popular songs performed by fellow The Voice Kids finalists Darren Espanto, Juan Karlos Labajo, Darlene Vibares, Tonton Cabiles, and Edray Teodoro, Lyca said the album features her favorite song form the competition. “’Halik’ kasi yun yung paborito ko kasi Aegis ang kumanta nun. Dun din ako sumikat at kung di ako siguro kumanta nun sa blind audition sa The Voice baka hindi ako nakapasok,” she said.

The Voice Kids The Album is available at record stores nationwide under MCA records. It is also available for download on iTunes and streaming via Spotify, Deezer and Guvera. The Voice All-In The Concert will be held on December 6, 8pm at the PICC Plenary Hall.
