Biography

Hailed by many as the reigning "King of Salsa," Marc Anthony sold millions of albums, won a slew of Grammy Awards, and married one of the world's most famous women. Anthony launched his career in the Latin music genre, releasing salsa-inflected albums and elevating his career in the Spanish-speaking world. In 1999, the singer successfully crossed over to mainstream pop with his self-titled, English-language debut that spawned the chart-topping hits "I Need to Know" and "You Sang to Me." One of Anthony's fellow artists from the late-1990s Latin pop invasion was triple-threat talent Jennifer Lopez, whom he married in 2005. Until their 2014 divorce, the high-profile couple enjoyed tremendous success as entrepreneurs, artists, and most importantly, parents of twins. As a character actor, Anthony held his own opposite Denzel Washington in "Man on Fire" (2004) and co-starred with his wife Lopez in the biographical film "El cantante" (2006). His scene-stealing role on the medical drama series "Hawthorne" (TNT, 2009- ), coupled with a successful tribute album Iconos (2010), established Anthony not only as a viable all-around entertainer, but as one of the most influential and respected artists of his time.
