Marc Anthony in performanceBorn Marco Antonio Muniz in New York City on September 16, 1968, the Latin hearthrob and current King of Salsa would eventually change his name to avoid confusion with the famous Mexican singing legend for whom he was named.

Occasionally singing for his family from the Muniz family kitchen table in Spanish Harlem, Anthony's early influences were not salsa, but the pop bands Menudo and a local club band, The Latin Rascals.

His first big professional break came with a collaboration with producer Little Louie Vega on the club hit Ride on the Rhythm in 1992. The following year, Anthony earned his first recording contract and a debut album, Otra Nota, featuring the hit single Vivir Lo Nuestro, a duet with pop and salsa singer, India.

Later on tour throughout the salsa circuit, Anthony quickly emerged as one of it's hottest stars. In 1995, his album Todo A Su Tiempo garnered a Grammy nomination, followed by a Grammy award going to his Contra La Corriente for Best Tropical Latin Performance in 1999. That same year, his English-language album featured a track, I Need to Know, that became a huge hit with U.S. audiences.

In addition to a musical career, Anthony has occasionally appeared in major Hollywood films including Martin Scorsese's Bringing Out The Dead and in Man on Fire alongside Denzel Washington.

Marc Anthony made headlines in 2004 with his surprise marriage to longtime friend Jennifer Lopez, the event taking place just three days before the release of his first Latin pop CD, Amar Sin Mentiras, (To Love Without Lies.). Anthony and Lopez performed together for the first time as husband and wife at the 2005 Grammy Awards -- from which Anthony took home an award for Best Latin Pop Album for Amar Sin Mentiras.

In 2007, husband-and-wife appeared on the big screen starring together in El Cantante and launched a major nationwide tour on September 29. A year later, more headlines were made when the couple announced the birth of twins, a boy and a girl named Max and Emme on February 22, 2008.

Four years later, the power couple ended thier marriage in 2012 when Marc Anthony filed for divorce in April. He is now reportedly dating clothing heiress Chloe Green.
