For Julie Anne San Jose, there’s always room for more

Asia’s Pop Diva Julie Anne San Jose’s journey as a Kapuso continues as she renewed her exclusive contract with GMA Network last Friday, October 25.

Present in the contract signing were GMA Network Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Atty. Felipe L. Gozon, President and Chief Operating Officer Gilberto R. Duavit, Jr., Senior Vice President for Entertainment Group Lilybeth G. Rasonable, Vice President for Business Development Department III Darling de Jesus-Bodegon, Vice President for Corporate Affairs and Communications Angel Javier Cruz, Senior Assistant Vice President for Alternative Productions Gigi Santiago-Lara, Senior Program Managers Mae Zambrano, Charles Koo, Ian Roxas, Ruth Mariñas, and GMA Artist Center Senior Talent Manager Daryl Zamora.

Julie is among the homegrown talents of the Network as she was a product of the reality talent competition ‘Popstar Kids’ in 2007. Being a Kapuso after more than a decade, the award-winning performer is looking forward to what’s yet to come in her career.

“I’m very happy and blessed. Nagpapasalamat po ako kay Lord and sa GMA for giving me another opportunity to share what I have, I’m just very grateful, excited, and looking forward to future projects here in my home network,” said Julie.

Julie is part of the original mainstays of the popular weekly comedy musical-variety show “Sunday Pinasaya,” where she showcases her humorous side in the show’s various segments. She is also a proud Clash Master for the all-Filipino singing competition ‘The Clash.’

Julie shared, “Nakakatuwa dahil lahat ng pinagdadaaanan ng Clashers na-iaapply nila sa pagpeperform, that says a lot already and we’re grateful they’re able to share their hearts sa mga tao. For me kasi, the important thing is pag singer ka, kailangan may soul ka rin. That’s how people perceive you as an artist and doon nila makikita kung gaano ka ka-authentic pagdating sa craft mo.”

After the success of her sold-out concert ‘Julie Sings the Divas’ last July, she remained busy in pursuit of her music. She released a single entitled ‘Regrets’ earlier this year and last October 18, she launched a collaboration with Rico Blanco via a song ‘Isang Gabi.’

A true testament to her journey as one of the top voices in the country’s music scene, Julie received recognitions at the 32nd Awit Awards where she took home the ‘Favorite Album of the Year’ award for ‘Breakthrough’ and the ‘Favorite Collaboration Performance’ award for ‘Down For Me’, a duet with Fern.

Indeed living her best life, Julie is now gearing up for another exciting project with digital music streaming platform Spotify.

During the contract signing, Atty. Gozon shared how Julie constantly impresses him with her work, “Well, of course, nagpapasalamat tayo, talagang homegrown naman si Julie Anne at habang siya’y nade-develop, lalong gumagaling kaya’t tayo ay natutuwa.”

Rasonable shared, “Dito halos lumaki si Julie Anne at nag-blossom ang career and now she’s hosting The Clash, nakakatuwa. Mapa-music, acting sa drama, comedy, she’s award-winning pa. Tahanan na n’ya ang GMA at kami bilang parang mga magulang na din niya dito, natutuwa sa lahat ng na-achieve na n’ya. I’m very proud.”
