Marc Anthony to support Obama with fundraising concert & dinner
Barack Obama has yet another celebrity friend in Marc Anthony.
Marc Anthony is the latest Latino supporting President Barack Obama for re-election. The 43-year-old salsa singer publicly announced his support recently in a 30-second video for the Obama re-election campaign, which urges Latinos to vote for President Obama. Yesterday, Anthony tweeted: “Re-electing @BarackObama=4 more yrs of progress for Latinos. That’s why I’m hosting him on June 26 in Miami.”
Anthony is also set to perform on the day of the fundraiser. Tickets to the concert, a Futuro Fund event, range from $100 to $5,000 per person. After the concert, Anthony will host President Obama at an intimate dinner.
Other high-profile Latinos have come out in support of President Obama, including Mexican American actress Eva Longoria, who was named one of Obama’s national co-chairs in February, and Ricky Martin, who hosted a fundraiser in New York in May.
