Marc Anthony seemed to crack under the emotion when he ended up weeping live on stage in Miami and cried when his fans sang him happy birthday.
Marc Anthony, who turned 43 on September 16, soon composed himself, and gave a trademark blisteringly passionate performance for his fans.
The latino singer performed mostly in Spanish, but still managed to keep the enthusiastic audience on their feet all night.
At one point Marc Anthony again hinted at his recent heartache after the breakup of his marriage, he introduced his suffering in love song Until I Met You, Hasta Que Te Conoci, and called it “complicated”.
Visibly touched, Marc Anthony has thanked the crowd for “all your love and support, especially this year; it means a lot to me.”
Later in the evening, his teenage daughter Ariana presented him with a three-tier, black and white birthday cake, while the crowd serenaded him once again.
Marc Anthony said: “Who in the world could say they’re spending their birthday like this? I’m a very lucky man.”
But Marc Anthony did not stop there, as around midnight he went to a private birthday party at Club 50 inside Miami’s Viceroy Hotel with around 150 close friends.
When Marc Anthony was asked what he wished for as he was blowing out the candles, he cryptically replied that he “already had his wish.”
However, Marc turned out to be a bit of a party lightweight as after telling chums he was issuing an “executive order to stay, drink as much as you can and party all night,” he slunk off to get some rest before the rest of his weekend concerts.
But before he left Marc Anthony added: “I feel like I am home, thanks for showing up. It’s mind-boggling.”
