Asia’s Limitless Star Julie Anne San Jose unleashes her musical prowess in the extraordinary musical journey “LIMITLESS, A Musical Trilogy” with the first part premiering on September 17.

“LIMITLESS, A Musical Trilogy” is set to unveil the different facets of Julie as a singer, songwriter, dancer, actress, and multi-instrumentalist as she travels to the three island groups of the Philippines where she discovers new inspiration in unexpected locations in Mindanao, Visayas, and Luzon.

Witness how Julie shows a new side of her that she has never shown before. Here she shares what she can do as a performer and what she has to go through to become limitless.

“Any artist would be very excited to be part of this unique project,” shared Julie. “And for me to be able to share my talent and my experience to my fans here and abroad is something I am truly excited for. I am grateful to GMA Network and GMA Synergy for trusting me with this one-of-a-kind endeavor.”


This journey of discovery is something everyone can relate to, especially now that we have to stay home again for our safety.

“Each of us is still trying to deal with the trying times and to be able to produce a musical trilogy like LIMITLESS and to have it seen by people not only here in the Philippines but in every part of the world is something I hope will inspire everyone to keep on seeing the good things around us,” Asia’s Limitless Star added.

For the first leg, Julie flies to Mindanao on a great adventure. Against the picturesque sceneries, she meets the locals and learns more about their culture and values.

Julie also collaborates with GMA Network’s homegrown talents and local artists from all over the country.

For the September 17 leg, Julie will be joined by Asia’s Romantic Balladeer Christian Bautista and The Clash alumnus Jong Madaliday, who is actually from Mindanao himself. Julie will work with Myke Salomon, the musical director behind the hit musicals “Huling El Bimbo” and “Rak of Aegis.” JC Gellidon is the director of photography.

A versatile artist, Julie is one of the hosts of GMA’s top-rating program ‘All-Out Sundays.’ She is also set to return with Rayver Cruz as Clash Masters in the all-original musical competition ‘The Clash.’ She bannered the GMA rom-com series ‘Heartful Café’ opposite David Licauco and will soon be starring on an online video streaming platform’s musical series “Still” alongside Christian Bautista.

Julie was recently featured on a digital billboard at the iconic Times Square in New York City. The said billboard was for Spotify’s EQUAL campaign, which encourages users to listen to amazing women all around the world.


“We have been a witness to Julie’s powerful stage performance during GMA Synergy’s highly-successful ‘Kapuso Concerts’ series ‘The Sweetheart and the Balladeer’ as well as ‘3 Stars, 1 Heart,” said GMA Regional TV and Synergy First Vice President and Head Oliver Victor Amoroso. “LIMITLESS, A Musical Trilogy is set to unleash Julie’s musical prowess that we have never seen before and we cannot wait for her fans here and abroad to be part of this new musical experience which begins on September 17,” he added.

“As one of GMA’s finest homegrown talents, Julie has flourished to become one of the best performers in our country and is now beginning to be recognized abroad as well. This is why we are excited to present to Julie’s fans this musical trilogy, ‘LIMITLESS’ because we know that Julie’s talent will take her fans to limitless heights when they join her in this musical journey,” shared First Vice President for Business Development Department III Darling De Jesus-Bodegon.

InLife Australia recently had a quick chat with Julie about her creative process and how she’s coping with the pandemic and here’s what went down:

As an artist, what was the effect of the pandemic in your life?

Honestly, there was a point in my life when I really felt demotivated. I didn’t know what to do or where to go… maybe it was the effect of the pandemic and the lockdown. I guess this is something we all went through – there were so many changes in our daily lives and so many people lost a lot. The pandemic didn’t just affect the physical aspect of our lives, it also affected our thinking – our mental and emotional health. Nowadays, I have a lot more reflections and self-discoveries especially now that I was able to travel. Travelling has enabled me to breathe a little better and I was inspired to live our lives to the fullest – there’s definitely more to life than this pandemic.

How did you get through the pandemic?

It’s really up to you to find a way to get through these difficult times or figure out how you’ll be able to rise again. Support from your family is very important. Because worse comes to worst, your family will be the only ones who will be able to help you pull through. I’m very grateful that my family has always been there for me. With this pandemic, I can honestly say that my relationship with my family has gotten a lot stronger because I found the time to go bonding with them. Before the pandemic when I was working a lot, I had to wake up really early so I never got the chance to see my family. Then when I get home, everyone would already be asleep! Nowadays, I can spend more quality time with them.

What do you like most about singing?

I can express my feelings and emotions in singing, and I hope that I can serve as an inspiration whenever I sing.

What message, if any, do you try to put into your work?

Passion and doing what you love.

Do you ever find yourself unable to express your creativity to the fullest? What kinds of things inhibit you?

I can express my creativity in singing and painting. As long as you’re happy, no one can stop you.

Do you feel that you chose your “passion,” or did it choose you?

I chose it. And it makes me complete and happy.
If you hadn’t chosen your field, what would your alternate field have been?

I would have been a teacher.


What inspires you to be creative? Is there anything special that you do to get into a creative mindset?

Whenever I write songs, I need to usually be in the right mood or I need to have an inspiration – I always look for inspiration on whatever available resources I have. For example, let’s say I have a friend who told me about his/her experience – this friend shared an experience with me because we haven’t seen each other in a long time. From that interaction, I can actually come up with lyrics to a song. Sometimes it just hits me and sometimes I even dream about the lyrics (laughs). Unfortunately, I would feel bad the next day because I won’t be able to remember what I dreamt about! Typically my inspiration comes from self-realisations about my family or myself – different moods can produce different inspirations.

What are your future plans? Inside your career or out of it.

I want to travel and explore more of myself. If given a chance, I want to learn a new language. I want to meet a lot of people from all walks of life. I want to learn more and grow.
