Julie Anne Peñaflorida San Jose (born May 17, 1994 in Novaliches, Quezon City, Philippines) is a Filipina singer, actress, and host who is a contract artist of GMA Network. San Jose have had a Diamond-certified recording; her album Julie Anne San Jose sold more than 150,000 units in the Philippines. Her second album entitled "Deeper" is also certified double platinum for reaching sales of more than 30,000 units in the Philippines.

Early career: 2005–2009[edit]

San Jose had her first TV experience on Eat Bulaga!'s "Little Miss Philippines" when she was three years old. She also competed on ABS-CBN’s Munting Miss U and was third runner-up.[1]

As a child, she appeared in a commercial with Sharon Cuneta, but did not pursue show business until 2005, when she joined Popstar Kids, a singing competition hosted by R&B singer-songwriter Kyla. Although San Jose did not win the grand prize, she became part of Sugarpop, the show's spin-off child singing group. Sugarpop released two studio albums, Sugar Pop and Sugar Pop Repackaged, and also had a show on QTV 11 entitled Planet Q, where a young San Jose and her group mates showcased their hosting abilities. Sugarpop also performed weekly on the GMA-7's variety show, SOP.[2] She made her acting debut in 2008 on the afternoon soap Gaano Kadalas ang Minsan?

Rise to stardom: 2010–2011[edit]

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

In April 2011, San Jose started to do "UStreams" for her fans: webcasts where she performs songs based on a different theme each week. Her viral video "Super Bass", now with 18 million views, is from one of her UStreams.[4] This video was a factor in her selection as David Archuleta's front act in July 2011. She was included as one of the support cast in the GMA-7 shows Andres de Sayas and Daldalita.[5][6]

Multimedia artist: 2012–present[edit]

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

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

She had her first major solo concert in May 2013 at the Music Museum in Greenhills. The concert, entitled Julie Anne: It's My Time was a success: tickets sold out just five days after going on sale.[11]

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

She is currently performing in Sunday All Stars, and also played the lead role in the now finished primetime TV show Kahit Nasaan Ka Man as Pauline Gomez. She plays a recurring character named Nikki on GMA-7's Pepito Manaloto and has released her second solo studio album, entitled Deeper, on June 1, 2014 via iTunes worldwide and spinnr.ph.

In 2015, San Jose replaced Isabel Oli, and joined by Foreignay Dasuri Choi for GMA News TV's Day Off. Since Pia Guanio's departure from 24 Oras' Chika Minute, San Jose made her short stint as interim Chika Minuite anchor. Also in 2015, San Jose released her single "Tidal Wave" which is shot in New York. She also became a brand ambassador of Motortrade with Papa Jack and Gloc 9. San Jose reached top 100 (Ranked # 60) for the first time in FHM Philippines' 100 Sexiest Women which was won by Jennylyn Mercado. San Jose is considered by FHM to pose on their cover along with Coleen Garcia and Nadine Lustre, San Jose covered for August 2015 Preview (an FHM sister magazine) as part of their 20th anniversary.[13][14][15] San Jose will star along with Kylie Padilla, Julian Trono and paired to Jake Vargas for afternoon soap Buena Familia. She also join in the new Sunday variety show Sunday Pinas Saya which she joins Marian Rivera and Ai-Ai delas Alas.
