How Anthony’s net worth was built

Marco Antonio Muniz, known professionally as Marc Anthony, was named after a popular Mexican singer. He began singing when he was 6 or 7 years old, and by age 12, was a background vocalist in commercials. In his teens, he was a water boy for one of his idols, Ruben Blades.

By high school, Anthony was writing Top 40 hits. He worked as a vocal coach and backup singer. In 1988, he put out an album called, “Rebel.” Four years later, he was an opening act at Madison Square Garden. In 1993, he released his first Spanish-language album and never looked back. With the exception of his two English-language albums, every record was a top seller for the salsa sensation. He has also had movie roles in “Big Night,” “Man on Fire” and other films.

Marc Anthony, who owns a minority stake in the NFL’s Miami Dolphins, was worth $40 million as of May 2017, according to Celebrity Net Worth.
