 NEW YORK (AP) - Apparently, some people need to be reminded that Marc Anthony is an American.
The New York-born singer of Puerto Rican descent touted his roots on ``Live with Kelly and Michael'' on Thursday after some people criticized his selection to sing ``God Bless America'' at this week's Major League Baseball All-Star Game, held in New York City.
In an interview, the Grammy-winning salsa star said that he heard people were questioning why a foreign-born person was singing the patriotic song. Anthony said he was born in New York and added: ``You can't get more New York than me.''
Similar comments were made last month when a Texas-born 11-year-old mariachi singer sang the national anthem during the NBA finals. Both Anthony and the child are Latino.
