Superstar Marc Anthony will sit down for a rare interview during the Billboard Latin Music Conference, during which he will discuss of his upcoming release and different artistic and business ventures, including his film career and his purchase of a minority stake in the Miami Dolphins. Anthony will be featured in the conference's “In-Depth” session.

The Billboard Latin Music Conference is presented by State Farm in association with T-Mobile, and takes place April 26-29 in San Juan, Puerto Rico.

The singer, actor and philanthropist is releasing his first album since 2007’s “El Cantante,” the soundtrack to the film of the same name, in which he played the role of fabled sonero Hector Lavoe. This time around, Anthony has recorded an album that pays homage to some of Latin music’s biggest singers, including José Luis Perales and Juan Gabriel, and where he covers songs mad popular by them. The album, co-produced with Julio Reyes, also includes original material.

One of the few Latin acts who have enjoyed successful careers in both English and Spanish, in pop and tropical music, Marc Anthony expanded the possibilities of bilingual and bicultural acts, in the United States and abroad.

Anthony joins a roster of panelists that includes top industry and musical names. Among those already announced are the urban/bachata group Aventura, who are this year’s “Superstar Q&A” artist, Jesús López, chairman of Universal Music Latin America/Iberian Penninsula, top finalist Tito “El Bambino,” songwriter Omar Alfanno, Angelo Medina Enterprises founder Angelo Medina, BMI VP of Latin Music Delia Orjuela and ASCAP senior VP of Latin membership Alexandra Lioutikoff.

The conference also features three days of showcases by upcoming and established acts, including Elvis Crespo, Victor Manuelle, and ‘N Klabe. The conference culminates with the Billboard Latin Music Awards, airing live on the Telemundo network from the San Juan Coliseum on April 29.
