Jaya leaves Philippines for US

  • Veteran soul singer Jaya is moving back to United States after the COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on their family.

    Jaya shared her plans of leaving the Philippines with her family during the virtual press conference for the online show “Grateful Tuesdays.”

    “Sa ngayon po gusto ko po sana kahit papaano magpahinga. Hindi ko alam ‘yung feeling ng pahinga. But still with some type of work. Ito nga, sabi ko, ang saya. Natiyempo ‘yung online. Pwedeng gawin ‘yan. Maraming pwedeng gawin sa online source,” the singer explained.

    The “Queen of Soul” also said she will not be leaving immediately although her husband Gary Gotidoc has already left the country.

    “Sa akin po ‘yung pag-alis, hindi po ito agad-agad. Pero plano po ‘yun talaga kasi nauna na po ‘yung asawa ko,” Jaya quipped.

    She went on to say that now is the right time to start for a new beginning.

    “A lot of people would understand [that] I’m 51 in a few weeks and napakarami ko pa ding gustong gawin na ibang bagay, not just singing. And right now, everything is kind of slow and down. So good opportunity to start something fresh,” she said.

    Jaya faced a challenge during the lockdown when her husband was rushed to the hospital due to a stroke.

    After all the challenges, Jaya said she left everything in God’s hands. And that’s when she and her husband decided to return to the US.

    Last January, after selling some of their properties in Tarlac, Jaya’s husband and her stepson left for the US, where they already found a house for them, according to a report of Pep.

    “You know, God had better plans. He made us sell the property, nagbayad the same day… That was January 5… January 7, they departed. They were able to find a job 22 hours later and they were able to find a home to rent na ang laki-laki, ang ganda-ganda na parang pwede ba nating bilhin ‘yun someday? Hindi naman binebenta… but you know, He provides. Things happened and things start to arise when your faith rises. That’s the reason why I’m going to the States because I think He’s telling me talaga to go there, don’t worry about it,” Jaya said. (abs-cbn)
