LIKELY, UNLIKELY TANDEM: How do they hope to make beautiful music together despite the age and musical differences?
Christian Bautista and Julie Anne San Jose claim they can, given their diverse musical backgrounds.
The two singers join forces in a show called “When Christian Meets Julie Anne,” slated at the Kia Theater in Cubao on Nov. 11.
Presented by DreamStar Events Management and GMA Network, the one-night only concert combines Christian and Julie Anne, who are both products of singing searches. From there, they rose to carve their places in the music and concert scene.
Christian is best known as Asia’s Romantic Balladeer while Julie Anne is dubbed as Asia’s Pop Sweetheart. Little wonder the show’s producers must be proud members of the ASEAN who have no plans of breaking away from the association.

RELATIONSHIPS FOR KEEPS: At the show’s media announcement held Tuesday, Christian thanked Julie Anne for dropping the prefix Kuya each time she would address him.
Christian is turning 35 this month.
He said he hoped his present relationship with a private citizen shall be for keeps.
Without mentioning the name of her boyfriend, Julie Ann expressed the same sentiment.
“Don’t we all expect forever in all our relationships,” she wondered.
Julie Anne is said to be seeing fellow GMA artist Benjamin Alves.

LIKE THEATER PIECE: Their director, Marvin Caldito, explained that the show will have somewhat of a theatrical format.
“It will be a journey of a love story told in songs,” he said.
As I was writing this, news flashed on my screen announcing Rachel Ann Go’s moving to Broadway in February 2017.
Rachel Anne will star in a new edition of “Les Miserables,” fresh from her stint in “Miss Saigon,” London.
