Marc Anthony was one of the central figures of the Latin American Music Awards ceremony that took place this Thursday at the Dolby Theater in Hollywood.
The salsa player with Puerto Rican roots received the "Artist Award of Excellence" for his brilliant career that has spanned almost three decades. And when he took over the stage to receive he showed his most human side by thanking all those who have operated behind the scenes to put him where he is.
"I'd rather sing than talk. This does not happen in a day in a year, we have been in this environment for almost 30 years, "said the singer wearing thick sunglasses. "I have to thank my team, Magnus, Sony, my family," but more than anything my children who have had to sacrifice so much for Daddy to achieve his dreams on his behalf."
"Thanks to Puerto Rico and the Latino race, but above all I want to dedicate this award to a brother who is no longer with us," he continued. "My dear brother José José ". That's when he performed a very his version of "Almohada", one of the great classics of "Príncipe de la Canción", who left us on September 28.
The Latin American Music Awards celebrated its fifth edition with a shower of stars that included Romeo Santos, Daddy Yankee, Wisin y Yandel, Christian Nodal, Ozuna and Lupita Infante.
