marc+anthonyMarc Anthony has been named the 2016 Latin Recording Academy Person of the Year! He deserves it…he’s a two-time Grammy and five-time Latin Grammy winner.

He will be honored by the Academy during Latin Grammy week on November 16, the night before the awards ceremony in Las Vegas.

“I was ecstatic when I received the news,” the chart-topping artist said in a press release. “It is an honor and I am humbled to be selected as The Person of Year recipient for my contributions as a music ambassador and my humanitarian efforts.”

“Marc Anthony is synonymous with excellence and commitment to perfection,” Gabriel Abaroa Jr., president and CEO of the Latin Recording Academy, said in a statement. “The world knows him as a music king; however, on Nov. 16, the award-winning singer will not only be honored for his musical legacy but also applauded for his relentless humanitarian efforts.”

He’ll be honored at a fancy dinner that will include performances of his song by other artists…which should be amazing.
