Reading this Marc Anthony biography will give you a sense of how talented this Hispanic musician is as he has excelled not only in music but also in the film industry.

Marco Antonio Muniz is primarily a musician, song writer and aside from being an actor, he’s also a producer.

What I like the most about this actor, is how he made a name in the showbiz industry despite his humble beginnings.

He started his life out in New York born to Puerto Rican parents, Felipe and Guillerminna Muniz. With his father being a musician himself, Marc Anthony had a very good example to follow.

Marc Anthony started as a session vocalist. It was here, at this point in the Marc Anthony biography that he changed his name to avoid confusion. Marco Antonio Muñiz is also the name of a famed Hispanic singer.

From this time, Marc Anthony worked as a backup vocalist and songwriter for popular bands and boy bands like Menudo.

Through his freestyle music, a style that he is so used to as a session vocalist, he came up with his first album. The album was called “Rebel” and it came out in 1988 under the label Bluedog Records.

In the very same year, the public had another sample of Marc Anthony’s lyrics where he wrote as well as produced the song, “Boy I’ve Been Told.”

He was reluctant to make a mark in Hispanic culture as a salsa musician, but after hearing Juan Gabriel’s song “Hasta Que te Conoci” Marc changed his mind and wanted to make it into salsa.

Marc Anthony came out with the Spanish language album, “Otra Nota” in 1993. This was the beginning of a speedy move to the center of the spotlight.

Today, he’s mostly known for his Latin ballads and salsa numbers. He won three Latin Grammy awards to prove his prowess. He had also won two Grammys and sold more than 30 million records all over the world.

At the peak of his career in 2004, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez married but unfortunately the relationship ended in 2011. They have twins.

This famous Hispanic artist’s love life has been marked with broken relationships. His first kids Cristian and Ryan came from his first marriage with Arianna. His second set of children came from the second marriage with Dayanara Torres Delgado a Puerto Rican actress, model, and former Miss Universe.

With many other Hispanic artists successfully making the crossover to the American scene, it also became Mark Anthony’s dream. With songs like “I Need to Know,” “My Baby You” and others, he also made it. These songs made Marc Anthony concerts a sold out event every time.

On the big screen, Marc Anthony also started out playing a singer. He had a cameo role in Carlito’s Way where he sang “Parece Mentira.” He also broke into TV in Hawthrone where he’s set to play a guest role as Nick Renata in a few episodes.

Marc Anthony continues creating roughly one album every year with many songs taken from ballad singers like Jose Luis Perales, Jose-Jose, and Juan Gabriel.

Marc Anthony has accomplished so much and there are a lot of musical accomplishments that can be read in any Marc Anthony biography.
