On Saturday (July 29), salsa superstar Marc Anthony did his best effort to perform at the "El Clásico" match between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona halftime show at the Hard Rock stadium in Hollywood, Fla., two days after he confirmed his mom’s death.

Anthony's performance in "El Clásico" had been confirmed in May and at the time he was very excited. "It's unprecedented. This is surreal to me," Anthony said during a press conference.

The performance included a four song medley with “I Need to Know,” “Tu Amor Me Hace Bien,” “La Gozadera” and “Vivir Mi Vida."  Watch below.

So far, the cause of the death of Guillermina Muñiz, Marc Anthony's mother, is unknown.
