Julie Anne San Jose has fulfilled her dream of working with her idol Gary Valenciano on a musical collaboration.
On Instagram, an elated Julie Anne announced the release of her newest single "Di Ka Akin" featuring the veteran singer.
"It’s out! I wrote this song last year and it has finally come to life. Still feels surreal… collaborating with @garyvalenciano is definitely a dream come true," she wrote.
She also thanked Universal Records and Gary's wife Angeli Pangilinan for making her dream happen.
Meanwhile, in a clip he posted on Instagram, Gary explained what made him say yes to his musical collaboration with Julie Anne.
"I wasn't sure if I was going to be able to deliver because it's a totally new sound from what I'm used to doing. But it's a sound of today, and I must say that that's actually that made me say, ‘Yeah, why not?’" said the singer known as Mr. Pure Energy.
"Because it wasn't just a good song, that's a given already, but it's also with an excellent artist. And I cannot afford to miss opportunities like this because they don't come very often."

"Di Ka Akin" is also available to listen on Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music, and other digital streaming platforms worldwide.
