Okay, this isn’t the Shakespeare character or the historical guy. This is the guy who has made a career singing salsa music. He has been called a less jumpy Ricky Martin. (He is also known as having been married to Jennifer Lopez.) In fact, he is the top-selling tropical salsa artist of all time! He has won two Grammy Awards and Five Latin Grammy Awards, and his albums have sold over twelve million copies.
Marc Anthony lists as his musical influences the great Tito Puente, Ruben Blades and Juan Gabriel. His HBO special, “The Concert from Madison Square Garden,” propelled him into the Billboard 200 Chart. He and Lopez are producers of a Spanish talent show, “The Chosen.”
Columbian born Carlos Vives started his professional life as an actor in Columbian TV. His music style is heavily influenced by Vallenato, the folk music of Columbia. His album “Clasicos de la Provincial,” a fusion of Vallenato and pop music styles, won the Latin Grammy Award for Best Album.
