Lyca Gairanod, the newly crowned winner of The Voice Kids in the Philippines, has received an iPad from Kris Aquino.
Aquino said that after the taping of her morning show “Kris TV,” where she had Gairanod and the other three finalists on, Lyca had asked Kris for an iPad.
During the live broadcast of “The Buzz” on Sunday, Kris fulfilled Lyca’s wish. The nine-year-old singer was delighted, smiling as she and Kris posed for a picture.
Kris also gave finalist Darlene Vibares an iPad.
Lyca also recently performed “Halik” on ASAP, pleasing the crowd.
Lyca was coached by Team Sarah, and won after getting the highest percentage of public votes.
Gairanod is from Cavite and used to scavenge junk to help her family pay the bills, reported ABS-CBN. She also performed for neighbors for extra money.
Her mother also scavenged junk while her father is a fisherman.
She won a recording contract with MCA Universal, a P1-million cash prize, a house and lot from Camella Homes, a musical instrument package, and a home appliance package, among other prizes.
The Voice Kids Philippines was very popular, coming in aa the number one television program last month. The show will likely be renewed.
The Voice of the Philippines (the same thing but with adults) season 2 will premiere later this year.
