Marc Anthony Honors Johnny Pacheco

Anthony took a moment to pay tribute to the salsa icon, who died on Feb. 15 at the age of 85.

“Tonight I want to honor and thank one of the pillars of salsa music, a musical genius who recently died. The great maestro Johnny Pacheco,” Anthony said in Spanish, adding that without Pacheco salsa music wouldn’t exist.

“And without salsa, I don’t know who I would be,” Anthony continued. “Your music was the soundtrack to my life while I grew up in New York. You were always with me… Thank you for all the memories, Mr. Pacheco. Thank you for the music. We know there is a party in heaven. Tonight, on this stage, and forevermore we will sing in your honor. I love you, maestro.”

Following Anthony’s words, Gilberto Santa Rosa performed a tribute.
