Julie Anne at Kia Theater for 10th anniversary concert
Singer-actress sensation and Kapuso star Julie Anne San Jose entered showbiz as a tween and hasn’t let go with success and fame since. Thus, it is no surprise that she’s set to celebrate her 10th anniversary with a major concert while others her age are practically just beginning to shine.
The concert, aptly titled “In Control,” takes place at Kia Theater in Araneta Center, Cubao, Quezon City on May 14, 8 pm. The date is just three days short of her 22nd birthday. But more than the age matter, it’s the fact that her career milestone is worth celebrating because of her immense success mirrored by a strong fan base and high visbility that goes beyond Philippine setting.
Being made possible by Dreamstar Events management, “In Control” features the directorial prowess of Marvin Caldito and the credibility of musical director Marc Lopez.
Definitely under the blessing of GMA-7’s Artist Management and record label, the show is sure anchored on the publicly embraced singing talent and charm of Julie Anne who by now is the recipient of a “Diamond Record Award,” having sold 150,000 units of her eponymous alabum. Her single from the album “I’ll Be There” actually remains as the only certified quadruple platinum by PARI (Philippine Association of the Record Industry).
Her second album “Deeper” has been already awarded triple platinum earlier this year and was awarded “Best Selling Album” at the 28th Awit Awards.
To some who find such mind-boggling stats quite difficult to comprehend, they only have to recall her “Tidal Wave” (a song arranged by American producer Sidney Brown) track and the cool music video shot in the US.She actually filmed three music videos in New York and California under the radar of a Los Angeles-based company. Truly, the former member of vocal group Sugarpop has gone from a promising sweet-looking local teenage face into a highly established and sophisiticated world-class pop act.
Julie Anne has been releasing multiple singles the past few years owing to the high demand of her ever-increasing number of fans. In a provincial Kapuso stars mall show last summer, she was clearly the star being awaited to appear inspite being dominated by male figures who kept the mostly teenage girls screaming in delight. But once she appeared, one could sense that the adulation goes beyond admiration for her looks; there’s that air of respect for her voice and what she has already done in showbiz.
Small wonder she had been tabbed by OPM (Organisasyon ng Pilipino Mang-aawit) as Junior Ambassador “to represent and promote Filipino music to the young.” She’s also a celebrity advocate for World Vision that promotes children’s rights and well-being.
Julie Anne is likewise a certified multi-hyphenated talent, having attained success in various fields. She is one of the few who gets appraisal for both her singing and acting career, appearing recently in the afternoon soap “Buena Familia” and two years ago, in the Dingdong Dantes-staring “Kubot: Aswang Chronicles.”
Of course, her fan base grew as a result of her love teaming-up with Elmo Magalona, long before Alden Richards and Maine Mendoza became the country’s ultimate kilig lovebirds.
In the awards category, she has plenty to showcase. Her music video for “Right Where You Belong” won at the MYX Music Awards last year. She even placed relatively high at FHM’s sexiest, proof that beauty and talent have mixed up well to solidify her hold in showbiz, ten years and counting.
Tickets to Julie Anne’s “In Control” concert are priced at P4,240 (VIP), P3,710 (Orchestra), P1,590 (Loge) and P1,060 (Balcony).
