Marc Anthony in Concert Presented by Goya Gives at the Izod Center in Rutherford - September 9, 2011

Marc Anthony received unwarranted, negative, racist backlash after he sang the “God Bless America” at this week’s Major League Baseball All-Star Game only thing is…Marc Anthony is American…born and raised in NYC to Puerto Rican parents!!! Some people on Twitter began calling it ‘unAmerican’ to have Marc sing “God Bless America.”  During an interview today Marc said, “Let’s get this straight. I was born and raised in New York. You can’t get more New York than me.” There you have it!
