NYC Parade Will Have a King: Marc Anthony

Friday, 11 Jun 2010 07:21 AM

Marc Anthony will be the king of New York's annual Puerto Rican Day Parade on Sunday.

The Creativelink agency quoted the singer Thursday as saying that he was very proud to receive the recognition from the parade organizers and the community.

The agency says Anthony had initially intended to make only a brief appearance but cleared his schedule for his new starring role.

Actor Osvaldo Rios dropped out this week as the parade's international godfather after critics called for a boycott. Rios was convicted on a domestic violence charge in 2003. Rio said he had learned his lesson and asked for forgiveness.

Anthony, who is of Puerto Rican descent, recently released a new album, "Iconos" (EE'-koh-nohs.) This week it was ranked No. 11 on Billboard's Top 200.
