Marc Anthony– singer, songwriter, actor, and producer from the USA
Marc Anthony (full name Marc Anthony Muniz) was born on 16 September 1968 in New York. His parents came to the USA from Puerto Rico. Marc was growing up in the so-called “Spanish Harlem”. His father was a musician, who was hoping that the son would follow in his footsteps. That’s why he called the boy in honor of one of the most famous Mexican artists. Later, Marc had to shorten his name in order to avoid confusion regarding the name similarity.
When he was young, Anthony listened to rock and R&B. He started writing lyrics when he was still in high school. Thanks to his father’s help and a great desire to perform, Anthony worked with such bands as Menudo and Latin Rascals. However, he dreamed of a solo career and started performing in New York bars and nightclubs. That’s where he met a producer Little Louie Vega, with whom he worked on many songs.
In 1991, Anthony released his 1st LP, When The Night Is Over. The album didn’t make it into the charts and wasn’t commercially successful.
