Anthony, 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 2012 Billboard Hall of Fame honoree – along with his longtime friend and business associate Henry Cardenas – announced the creation of Maestro Cares, a non-profit organization that broke ground in the Dominican Republic just last week and seeks to help disadvantaged children and orphans in developing countries throughout Latin America. The New York native was recognized with the 2012 ASCAP Founders Award for his exceptional contributions to music and 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.
