While some child singers like Darren Espanto have achieved a modicum of success after entering the entertainment industry, others slowly leave the limelight. Case in point, Lyca Gairanod. Some of her supporters may be wondering what this singing prodigy is currently up to.
Before we give you an update on her current life, let’s look back at the days when she left us breathless with her powerful and emotional singing performances.
Born on November 21, 2004 in the city of Tanza, Cavite, Lyca Gairanod grew up collecting plastic bottles and recyclable materials for a living. She experienced a major plot twist in her life when she joined ABS-CBN’s “The Voice Kids Philippines.”
During her audition, she quickly captured Sarah Geronimo‘s heart when she sang and belted the high notes of Aegis’ “Halik.” Her impeccable talent catapulted her to success as she was proclaimed the champion at the end of the competition.
Her triumph in the competition came with a bit of fame. She became a regular guest in talk and variety shows such as “Rated K” and “Gandang Gabi Vice.“ She also starred in the movie “Tatlong Bibe,” and portrayed the protagonist in a “Maalaala Mo Kaya“ episode that depicted her life. In 2015, she released her debut album under Decca Records titled “Puwede Nang Mangarap.”
Currently, the “The Voice Kids champion” is setting the internet on fire with her new look.
She’s no longer the little girl that we were introduced to, now she is a charming teenage girl with her own sense of style.
The 13-year-old singer has definitely grown up.
This singing child prodigy looks so pretty with her ombré hair!
Her pictures scream the cliche: “Puberty hit her like a truck.”
