Telemundo announced today that internationally acclaimed singer, actor, and producer Marc Anthony will receive the Latin AMA International Artist Award of Excellence given for the first time ever at the Latin American Music Awards.
This special award is given to artists that turn the world around with their greatness, crossing over language, race or religion. Their nationality has no borders; they stand for peace, and their songs reverberate as musical anthems.
In addition to receiving the recognition, the Puerto Rican artist is also scheduled to perform during the Latin AMAs on October 17 at the Dolby Theatre in Hollywood, California.
The award ceremony will also air simultaneously on Spanish-language entertainment cable network, Universo and in 20 countries throughout the Americas via Telemundo Internacional.
Marc Anthony is one of the most influential artists of his time, and a true ambassador of Latin culture and music. Songs like “Flor Pálida” and “Valió la Pena,” among others, have become fan favorites. His musical hits have also granted him countless gold and platinum awards from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), with more than 31 hits on the Billboard charts and over 7.4 billion views on YouTube.
Anthony joins the previously announced lineup of stars that will perform at this year’s event, including: Ozuna, Becky G, CNCO, Gente de Zona, Farruko, Wisin & Yandel, Christian Nodal, Zion & Lennox, Beret, Abraham Mateo, Sofía Reyes, Lupita Infante, Kali Uchis, and Emilia Mernes.
