Billboard spoke with Marc Anthony, winner of this year's Spirit of Hope Award for his philanthropic work in support of children's health and education, at the just-wrapped Billboard Latin Music Conference & Awards presented by State Farm (read the full wrap from the awards here).

Anthony talks about his upcoming album "Iconos," which celebrates Latin artists and songs "that have withstood the test of time". "They just don't write songs like this anymore," says Anthony. "I wanted to celebrate artists that had the guts at the time to be so daring."
