Performer Info

Marc Anthony: Marc Anthony has sold over 11 million albums worldwide, making him one of the most influential artists of his time and a true ambassador of Latin music and culture.

He has been awarded countless Standard gold and platinum certifications from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). The list of Grammy accolades began with a 1998 Grammy for Best Latin/Tropical Performance for “Contra La Corriente,” followed with a 1999 Grammy for Song of the Year for “Dimelo.”

Driven in part by the crossover success of his smash single “I Need to Know (Dimelo),” “Marc Anthony,” his English language debut album, helped usher in 1999's Latin pop explosion, and went on to achieve triple platinum status in the U.S. And, in 2005 Marc Anthony went home double fisted with a Grammy for Best Latin Pop Album of the Year for “Amar Sin Mentiras” and another Grammy for Best Tropical Album of the Year for “Valio la Pena.” He has won a total of 18 “Premio lo Nuestro” Awards throughout his career, the most won by any artist. His influence was significantly recognized when he was included in the Top 10 List of influential New Yorkers compiled by New York Magazine.

Marc has also established a highly credible acting résumé and may be seen in Martin Scorsese's “Bringing Out the Dead” (1999); opposite Selma Hayak in the Showtime original film, “In the Time of the Butterflies” (2001); and appears with Denzel Washington and Christopher Walken in director Tony Scott's “Man On Fire” (2004). He also appeared in the 1997 Paul Simon musical, “The Capeman.” Marc Anthony starred as the Puerto Rican salsa pioneer Héctor Lavoe, with Jennifer Lopez as Puchi, in the biopic, “El Cantante,” directed by Leon Ichaso. The Dolphins minority owner, was recognized with a Lifetime Achievement Award by the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute in Washington D.C. in September 2009.

May 2010 marks the release of his new production titled “Iconos” (Icons), an all ballad Spanish album produced by Marc Anthony and Julio Reyes including eight titles of his favorite balladeers and two original songs both written by Julio Reyes and Marc Anthony.

These memorable songs turned into classics by artists such as: Juan Gabriel, José Luis Perales, José José, Roberto Carlos and La Mafia are born again, now in the incomparable emotion and unique style of Marc Anthony.
