Latin music: Marc Anthony Posted by on Nov 24, 2008 in Spanish Culture

Marc Anthony (Marco Antonio Muñiz) was born in New York, in 1968. Born to Puerto Rican parents, Latin music was always present in Marc’s life. Singer Paul Simon was the one who helped him kick off his career by casting him to be the leading man in the musical “The Capeman” (1998). He started as a freestyle music artist but turned to tropical music after 1992. As a producer and singer, he has worked with big names in the music industry such as Thalía, Ricardo Arjoja, Tina Arena, Olga Tañón, José Feliciano, La India, Jessica Simpson, Fifty Cent, Snoop Dogg and many more.
Marc has also done acting and his songs have appeared in movies like Carlito’s Way (the song “Parece Mentira”) and Runaway Bride (the song “You Sang To Me”). His acting career includes the movies “Bringing Out the Dead”, “In the Time of the Butterflies”, “Man on Fire” and, as the controversial Puerto Rican singer Héctor Lavoe, “El Cantante”, where he shares the big screen with his wife, Jennifer Lopez.
Marc has a very strong voice and we have chosen some videos for you to appreciate it.
