Jaya said,

“Nu’ng lumipat ako sa ABS, kayo ’yung tumanggap sa’kin. For me, I am going to leave with a heavy heart. But I am happy because I’ve had the honor and privilege to work with very excellent hosts that truly accepted me and loved me.”

“I might be old to say I know a lot, but I know nothing because you have shown me excellence in everything that you do.”

Despite the non-renewal of the network’s contract last year, Jaya expressed her thankfulness that the network did not completely shut down.

“Ako nagpapasalamat ako sa Panginoon, dito niya ko dinala. Tingnan mo, di siya nagsara. Lord, thank you for this opportunity to still.. Me standing up in the midst of all my trials na ilang taon din ’yun.”

“Showtime, Tawag ng Tanghalan, ABC-CBN, my heart is with you, you will never close. I claim that because you’ve helped so many people not only in the public, even me, isang singer an kagaya ko na namayagpag kahit sandali.”

“I pray that when this station opens up, pagabalik ko again, sana tanggapin niyo pa rin ako. Sa lahat ng Kapamilya, salamat po for honor and the privilege.”

Vice Ganda said,

“Mahal na mahal ka namin sobra. Mahal na mahal ka namin bilang katrabaho at kaibigan . . . We will forever be family, Jaya. And we will wait for your comeback.”

Last March, Jaya revealed that she and her family set to move to the United States due to the heavy effects that the COVID-19 pandemic rained on them.

Jaya revealed that her husband and stepson left for the United States on January 7. She also announced their moving plans 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.”
