Anthony (@marcanthony), a five-time Grammy and Latin Grammy Award winner, has enjoyed an action packed year and shows no signs of slowing down. After launching a signature clothing line for Kohl’s, the New York native co-founded the Maestro Cares Foundation, hosting a series of fundraisers throughout the year to benefit the non-profit organization. He was recognized with the 2012 Billboard Hall of Fame Award as well as the ASCAP Founders Award for his exceptional contributions to music. Moreover, his nationwide tour, GIGANT3S, topped Billboard’s Hot Tours Chart after garnering $10 million in ticket sales. With Anthony’s tremendous streak of accomplishments and great performances, fans are in for a special Valentines Day weekend.
