Lyca Gairanod expressed her sincerest gratitude to those who voted for her as The Voice Kids of the Philippines grand champion. "Salamat po sa nagtiwala po sa akin. Salamat po sa bumoto sa akin thank you po, at sa mga artists po," she remarked in a short speech at the after-party of the competition.
The young singer said that now that she won, the first thing that she is going to do is to buy her siblings some stuff they need. "Bibili ko po kung ano ang gusto ng kapatid ko, ibibili ko po sila," she said.
In an earlier interview with Push.com.ph, Lyca expressed her desire to win the competition in order to help her family. "Gusto-gusto ko po mag-champion eh. Ang gusto ko pong maging pangarap na hindi na po kami maghihirap, tutulungan ko na po ‘yung pamilya ko at tsaka hindi na po kami aawayin. Bibili po kami ng bahay, mapag-aaral po namin ‘yung mga kapatid ko," she said.
Aside from singing, Lyca also wants to try acting. "Gusto ko rin pong sumali sa Goin' Bulilit, di ba po ‘yung Goin' Bulilit nagpapatawa po yun," she said.
Contender Juan Karlos Labajo, who was the third placer, said that he is happy for Lyca since the prize will help the latter's family. "Napaka-deserving po ni Lyca na manalo," he said at the backstage after the announcement of the winner. Darren Espanto, who was the second placer, remarked that Lyca was really his toughest contender. "Si Lyca po ‘yung pinaka-contender ko," he stated.
