Julia Barretto’s debut at the Rizal Ballroom of the Makati Shangri-la on Tuesday, March 10, was truly a grand spectacle, with the country’s biggest celebrities in attendance. But what made it truly special for Julia was that her once turbulent family has taken a good step forward to being together again, with the presence of family members that were once at odds with one another.
