A Magic That Is JULIELMO
When asked what he can say about Julie Anne San Jose and Elmo Magalona, film director Mac Alejandre simply said, ‘May magic sila’.
There’s something about this pair that got a lot of people spellbound, & every bloody fool knows that to put someone under a spell, there has to be magic. True. May magic nga ang JuliElmo.
The Philippines is a country filled with people who love to be entertained, and fortunately, it is also filled with people who love to entertain and are really good at it. No wonder that even in the quaintest little town in the country, almost every household has a TV set.
We Filipinos are hungry spectators and we want to be fed. The entertainment industry is well aware of this and so, we are heaped with an array of beautiful, talented people expected to fulfill that need. Thousands of them make it to our TV sets and to the big screen, but only a few make it to our hearts.
Among the many love teams, JuliElmo not only made it to our hearts. They made it right to the center—- bulls-eye. How did they become so magical?
TALENT. Julie and Elmo are both attractive but truth be told, they are not the best-looking pair in the industry. It’s their talent that sets them apart. It helped that they started as a musical tandem by which their chemistry as much as the melody, rhyme and rhythm that they make together, were uncovered.
DRAMA. Look closer and see a real-life drama unfold. Both Julie and Elmo have beautiful, colorful stories to tell. Julie was a virtually unknown, talented pretty little girl who tried to chase her dream for stardom. She failed many times. Elmo, albeit not having to go through what Julie went through, is chased by the shadows of his father’s fame. Francis M’s legacy as a musical icon is a big shoe to fill in. Because of this, Elmo had to reckon with the doubtful public who hurl accusations of him riding on to his old man’s name. It wasn’t all roses for both kids. And I think that is how, subliminally, they got the sympathy of the Filipino audience. Oh, we always love the underdogs, don’t we?
MYSTERY. Kilig is a word that has always been associated with JuliElmo. Whenever they perform together, you can hear a cacophony of shrieks and screams. May hampasan pang nagaganap. And the wonder of it all is that even if Julie and Elmo are only standing next to each other, people still feel the same vibe. And their screams are just as loud.
I think a major contributing factor of JuliElmo kilig is mystery. People have always been fascinated with the unknown. We love to make guesses. We love to play with our imagination. We make movies in our minds. We write stories into the wind. All because of one thing—- we know that the yet unknown presents a lot of possibilities. Are they dating in real life? Do they like each other? Will they end up together off-screen? This is the reason why a mere elbow-to-elbow brush or a crooked smile between Julie and Elmo could make us all feel warm and fuzzy inside. In short, ADIK lang talaga. hehe.
FAIRY TALE. We all love happy endings. Hell, we want something better than that—-we want happy-ever-after! And as fans, we want it for Julie and Elmo, because they are our Cinderella and Prince Charming. Whoever gets in the way is considered a witch if not a wicked stepmother or an evil queen if not a big-*** ugly ogre. So when haters or a third party get into the picture, some of us start to feel bad, even angry. But hey, c’mon, come to think of it, every beautiful story has a villain. Personally, I like villains, and I think every Julielmo fan should, too! Villains help establish the protagonist’s character. As evil as the Stepmother was, Cinderella was ever as pure and gentle and that is where you can see the contrast. In the same manner, haters will hate, rumors and intrigues will be blown out of proportion, but how Julie and Elmo will react to them shall be the basis of their characters. And might I say, that, as far as dealing with ‘villains’ is concerned, so far, so good. Both of them are doing beautifully! This is why I believe in them. This is why I have faith in their partnership. This is why I let myself be bound under their spell. If they keep it up, they’re looking into having a happy-ever-after, uhm, career-wise. (hehe).
Talent. Drama. Mystery. Fairy Tale. I say, these are how Julie and Elmo work their magic without flipping the wand. Meanwhile, let us all sit back and enjoy the lovely spectacle they’re making together. And then, we wait for that happy-ever-after.
I know it’s here somewhere. Or, probably, over there.

POUTners in crime rePOUT
Julie Anne San Jose: Her slow, but sure climb
By Vanessa Balbuena (The Freeman)
CEBU, Philippines - Had she not bawled and begged her dad for one last chance to pursue her passion, Julie Anne San Jose would, by now, been out of the showbiz radar. Her name would have joined the long list of once-upon-a-time aspirants who had their feet in the door but failed to summon attention, despite real talent.
The singer-actress’ father wanted her to quit years back, as nothing was coming out of his daughter’s career. Determined not to give up, she instilled in him that singing was her life. Her convincing powers worked, and now look who’s reaping the rewards of her patience and resolve.
"Oh, it was a long journey for me!" Julie Anne began during a recent interview at the Hotel Elizabeth, when she breezed into town for a benefit concert titled, Julie Anne San Jose: From the Heart held at the St. Theresa’s College Auditorium. Not only did she enthrall the audience with her Youtube-hit covers, she also learned the Visayan song Bisan Pa, and sang the piece for the Cebuano crowd.
No instant success
At two and half years, Julie Anne belted out Donna Cruz’s version of Habang May Buhay. This was the first song she ever sang, and hearing how the tot had potential, her mom enrolled her at the Center for Pop Music when she turned three. In the same year, she was thrust into television via the kids show Batibot. She also did the kiddie pageant route, joining Eat Bulaga’s Little Miss Philippines in 1997 where she ended first runner-up.
When Julie Anne was 11, her grandma encouraged her to join the singing contest Popstar Kids on the now-defunct QTV11 channel. After her top five finish, she got a spot in the show’s spin-off girl group called Sugarpop, with whom she recorded two albums.
The band signed a contract with GMA7 and had appearances in the then Sunday noontime show SOP. "Our group was eventually disbanded, and I was the only one who remained. They made me a mainstay in Party Pilipinas. It was flattering and I was so happy to be part of the show," recalled Julie Anne.
But the recognition and breaks didn’t automatically materialize. This frustrated her folks, and Julie Anne especially, because she was giving her all in every Sunday performance.
With more production numbers and solo spots assigned to her in the network’s reinvigorated Sunday show, and a musical team-up later on hatched between her and Elmo Magalona -- viewers (and her management) were finally sitting up and taking notice. Their teen tandem, with a series of rap musicals to boot, earned the resounding nod of fans and gave birth to the "JuliElmo" love team.
Soap opera theme song recordings, sitcoms, a front act gig for a David Archuleta concert, and awards soon followed. She even landed second place in a "Top 10 Women to Watch in the Year 2012" list, the other honorees of which include accomplished international personalities!
Perhaps what exposed her outside the usual fan base and converted non-believers into Julie Anne addicts themselves was that Youtube video of her acoustic version of Nicki Minaj’s Superbass, registering close to more than 14 million hits. What brought on all the fuss for this former Sugarpop? Clearly, the sweet-faced girl could rap! Something the internet sensation’s female counterparts couldn’t do as well as she does.
Now the musical princess moves up at an even higher notch as a teen movie star and legit solo recording artist. Filming for her and Elmo’s romance-drama flick began first week of March, with a tentative theater release by the second week of May. Titled Just One Summer, this is Julie Anne’s first lead.
Offered Julie Anne of the film’s story arc: "This is about two teens from two different worlds. My character grew up in the province, while Elmo’s role is a Manila kid. My father works in the farm owned by Elmo’s dad. We would meet because he’ll spend his summer vacation in the province. He has a rift with his dad that he wants to settle. His parents are also in the process of an annulment, that’s why his dad asks him to spend time with him in the province. So the story will revolve on that summer when we would meet."
"Viewers will definitely see a different side of me. Apart from the teen romance, we will be imparting the value and importance of family." The pair will be ably supported by veteran actors Gloria Romero, Cherry Pie Picache, Joel Torre, Buboy Garovillo, Alice Dixson; and young stars Sheena Halili, Steven Silva, Diva Montelaba, Sef Cadayona, Enzo Pineda and Lexi Fernandez.
While Julie Anne has a good amount of confidence with her music, the same can’t be said with her acting skills. She admitted to "needing a lot of workshops, motivation and internalization, especially with emotional scenes."
Nevertheless, the anxiety she feels is outweighed by the pride of headlining her first movie. "It’s really an honor for me, having this first lead film role. I’m nervous and excited at the same time, especially that I get to work with director Mac Alejandre who is known to be a bit strict."
Another cause for excitement is the completion of her first solo album, after she signed an exclusive recording contract with GMA Records. The 10-track CD -- made up of two Julie Anne compositions, five other originals and three covers – is set to be launched by middle of this year. One bonus track will be thrown in, a remake of Dina Bonnevie’s Bakit Ba Ganyan and the official soundtrack of Just One Summer.
Asked if she happened to have a dream performance in Party Pilipinas, the Kapuso pop star said that she’d love to have a solo spot where she’s playing one of her instruments. Aside from singing and dancing, the 17-year-old can also play the drums, guitar, piano, beat box, lyre and flute.
She lists among her musical idols Lea Salonga, Regine Velasquez, Kyla and Chris Brown. But admiring these artists doesn’t mean she’s aiming to mimic their, or any other singer’s style.
"It will be great not to be named the next Sharon Cuneta, or the next Sarah Geronimo. I hope to make a difference in my own way. A lot of people compare me to them. That’s not a bad thing, but for me, we should stop comparisons to avoid issues since we move in the same industry. Our common objective is mainly to entertain people."
In five years, Julie Anne (a Communication Arts sophomore) hopes to have been done with college, performed in the international arena or nabbed a Broadway stint. Nothing’s impossible with this girl, it seems, as long as she maintains a good head above her shoulders. For someone whose career breaks didn’t come overnight, she has an idea what it will take to make her last among the herd. "I used to feel left out. I was the newbie and my co-workers already knew each other well and they knew how everything worked. It was a culture shock for me. I’m a sensitive person, so when I was starting out, I would immediately cry when I read bad comments or came across haters and bashers."
"Later on, I realized that this industry is not at all easy. One has to be really tough. You really can’t please everyone. That’s why for all the people who want to be a part of this world, you need to be strong, self-confident and hardworking."
