Enter a universe that celebrates life, love, and music as Julie Anne San Jose and Rayver Cruz captivate fans in their much-awaited concert, JulieVerse, live at the Newport Performing Arts Theater on November 26. The concert is directed by Paolo Valenciano.
Julie and Rayver are excited to spread ‘kilig’ on the concert stage and they have been preparing for the special performances for their fans. As soon as it was announced, JulieVer’s supporters were quick to show their support, with the Premium and Bronze categories already sold out.
“I am overwhelmed by the warm reception of fans to JulieVerse. Rayver and I cannot wait to share our universe with you, mga Kapuso. See you on November 26,” says Julie Anne.
“Prepare to get kilig with the special numbers we have in store for you, guys,” shares Rayver. “We hope we can all get inspired this November 26 via JulieVerse.”
JulieVerse is produced by GMA Synergy – the same team behind the 2022 New York Festivals TV and Film Awards Silver Medalist Limitless: A Musical Trilogy. The three-part musical special featured Julie’s musical journey set against the picturesque background of Mindanao, Visayas, and Luzon.
It was on the second installment, Limitless: Heal, that Rayver was featured as one of Julie’s guests. Rayver accompanied Julie as she explored the mysterious beauty of Siquijor. In the last part of Limitless, Rise, Rayver sang a duet with Julie and revealed that it was her who inspired him to share his talent in playing the guitar to a bigger audience.
Since then, fans have been clamoring for a concert featuring the two Kapuso artists. The two powerhouse performers have been fan favorites since they were paired up in Studio 7, The Clash, and All-Out Sundays. Their TikTok collaborations are also a hit among netizens.
“In 2021, GMA Synergy took a leap of faith, and amidst the challenges of the global pandemic, conceptualized and produced a unique masterpiece called Limitless: A Musical Trilogy that showcased not only Julie Anne’s limitless talents but the Philippines’ overflowing beauty as well. This year, we at GMA Synergy continue to innovate and find ways to create new projects that our Kapuso can relate to. We proudly present another original concept via JulieVerse which we offer to everyone – from JulieVer shippers to fans of great music and live concerts. Expect another world-class performance from two of GMA Network’s most-prized artists: Julie Anne San Jose and Rayver Cruz,” says First Vice President and Head of GMA Regional TV and Synergy and Acting Head of GMA Integrated News Oliver Victor Amoroso.
“Coming from the success of the Limitless Trilogy, there was a great clamor for the next project. It was not at all difficult to come up with the next one because as with all great narratives, Julie’s story continued organically. And this time, we get to continue that story with an artist that truly complemented Julie’s talent and personality – Rayver Cruz,” shares First Vice President for Entertainment Group Darling De Jesus-Bodegon.
“Since they worked on musical performances together in Studio 7, we instantly saw the undeniable chemistry that they have. And since then, their spark continued to ignite which brings us to this night when we celebrate them as the perfect epitome of ‘twin flames.’ This is the story of two people na pinagtagpo, at tinadhana. Another truly exciting part of this project is that now, we finally get to share Julie Anne and Rayver’s story live on the concert stage. We are excited to share the screams, the gushes, the gasps, the ‘kilig’ with our audience. We conceptualized this show to give the audience an inclusive experience. We really want them to feel that they are inside the Julieverse,” she adds.
Joining JulieVer as special guests are fellow Sparkle artists Kyline Alcantara and Mavy Legaspi.
