Latin music icon Marc Anthony took center stage Saturday night in Newark, New Jersey’s entertainment capital, the Prudential Center for a Valentine’s Day after performance off his multinational Opus Tour making it yet another consistent sold-out extravaganza.
It comes as no surprise since New Jersey is the neighbor of his hometown, the city that never sleeps, New York. No matter how many times this universal artista; Spanish reference for artist; visits, the amorous rapport of his fans is felt every time turning the arena into an all-out dance party with his fiery contagious aura.
Marc’s musical talents developed early on at a young age while starting as a back-up vocalist on many New York Freestyle and House music scenes including trendy group “Latin Rascals”. Continuing his newfound craft, he recorded vocals for top Spanish boy band “Menudo” and in 1988, released his first single “Rebel”. Several years later, Marc opened for none other than “El Maestro” Tito Puente at New York’s Madison Square Garden where he found his true niche, salsa music.
