Born as Marco Antonio Muniz in New York City, actor, singer songwriter Marc Anthony went on to the international spotlight through his Latin and salsa-inspired music.
As a son of Puerto Rican parents, Anthony got his name from a Mexican singer Marco Antonio Muniz who was very popular in Puerto Rico. Fortunately, Anthony was gifted with spectacular singing voice as well, so to avoid confusion, he changed his name to Marc Anthony. Upon stepping up on stage, he quickly became an in-demand backup singer and in 1988, he finally debuted his first record called “Rebel” from Bluedog Records. Anthony then followed up by teaming up with Louie Vega and Todd Terry, performing regurly in the big apple.
Shortly after that, Anthony released his first Spanish-language album in 1993 titled Otra Nota, showcasing his diversed music style from Freestyle and House to salsa and other Spanish style music. He continued following his success, taking his albums and singles to the top of his genre and even appeared with Ruben Blades in Paul Simon’s stage musical, The Capeman. Anthony showcased his sensational talents to the big screen as well, appearing in films such as Big Night and Man on Fire.
Although his professional career has been consistent, his personal life has been unsteady, first breaking up with his NYPD officer Debbie Rosado. He then married Dayanara Torres on May, 2000 but had a divorce. Less than a week after his split with the former Miss Universe, Anthony married Jennifer Lopez but in 2011, the couple announced their breakup and their divorce was finalized in June 2014. Anthony tried again and tied the knot with Venezuelan model Shannon De Lima on November 2014, but the couple reportedly ended their relationship in November 2016.
