Julie Anne San Jose (born May 17, 1994 in Novaliches, Quezon City, Philippines) is a Filipina singer and actress who is a contract artist of GMA Network. San Jose holds the distinction of being the second female artist after Nina to have been officially awarded a Diamond certification after debut album Julie Anne San Jose surpassed sales of 150,000 units in the Philippines. San Jose was awarded in both 'ASAP 19' and 'SAS' for this feat. Her hit single entitled "I'll Be There" holds the highest certification (4X Platinum) for a digital single in OPM history. Her sophomore album "Deeper" is also certified Gold.

Early career: 2005–2009[edit]

Julie Anne had her first TV experience upon joining Eat Bulaga's Little Miss Philippines when she was three years old. She also joined ABS-CBN’s Munting Miss U and won third runner-up.[1] As a child, she appeared in a commercial with Sharon Cuneta but she did not pursue show business until Popstar Kids, a singing competition that she joined in 2005 hosted by R&B singer-songwriter Kyla. Although Julie Anne did not win the grand prize, she became part of Sugarpop, the show's spin-off children singing group. The group released two studio albums, Sugar Pop and Sugar Pop Repackaged, they also had a show on QTV 11 entitled Planet Q, where a young Julie Anne and her group mates showcased their hosting abilities. Sugarpop also performed weekly in the GMA-7's variety show, SOP.[2] She made her debut in acting in 2008 in the afternoon soap Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan?

Rise to stardom: 2010–2011[edit]

After SOP ended, Julie Anne was re-cast into the replacement show Party Pilipinas as a solo artist. As she evolved as a performer, Julie Anne was able to showcase her singing, dancing and acting abilities onstage. She also had tandem performances with Elmo Magalona or with Frencheska Farr. Aside from being known as a solo artist, she is also known as one-half of the popular musical tandem, "JuliElmo," side by side with her partner, Elmo Magalona, a rapping-singing experiment-gone-successful of the Sunday variety show. She has done five short films, the Red Mask Trilogy and Yellow Note 1 and 2", and starred in Party Pilipinas musicals, Blue Jeans The Musical (2011), Elmo and Julie Anne: A Wazak Love Story (2012), and Status: It's Complicated (2013).[3]

On April 2011, Julie Anne started to do UStreams for her fans with a different theme every time. It is a webcast where she performs songs based on the theme. Her viral video "Superbass", now with 18 million views, is from one of her UStreams.[4] This viral video was a factor for her selection as David Archuleta's front act in July 2011. Julie Anne was then included as support cast in the GMA-7 shows Andres De Saya and Daldalita.[5][6]

Multimedia artist: 2012–present[edit]

In February 2012, Julie Anne signed an exclusive recording contract with GMA Records.[7] Six months later in August 2012, she released her self-titled debut album which later on received numerous awards and is now a certified diamond record. Her single, "I'll Be There" remains the only single certified platinum, double platinum, triple platinum and quadruple platinum by PARI.[2] Currently, Julie Anne has released four singles from her album.[8]

After having consecutive support roles, Julie Anne finally landed a lead role through the youth oriented weekly show Together Forever. She played the role of Antoinette Escueta, or more popularly known as Toyang, a boyish daddy's girl who fell in love with her bestfriend.[9] In 2012, Julie Anne was launched as a movie star in the film Just One Summer with Elmo Magalona.[10]

Although Julie Anne is not new in the concert scene as she has already done numerous mini concerts, she had her first major solo concert in May 2013 at the Music Museum. The concert, entitled 'Julie Anne: It's My Time' was a success as tickets got sold out just five days after going on sale.[11]

Julie Anne is one of Organisasyon ng Pilipinong Mang-aawit's (OPM) active Junior Ambassador. Her job as a junior ambassador is basically to represent and promote Filipino Music to the young generation.[12]

Julie Anne is currently seen regularly as a performer in Sunday All Stars, she also played the lead role in now finished Primetime TV Show Kahit Nasaan Ka Man as Pauline Gomez. Aside from those, she also plays a recurring character named Nikki in GMA-7's Pepito Manaloto and is also set to release her second solo studio album entitled Deeper on June 1, 2014 via iTunes worldwide and spinnr.ph.
