Marc Anthony teams with Dolphins
Singer becomes minority owner of NFL franchiseNEW YORK -- Singer Marc Anthony is the latest music star to join forces with the Miami Dolphins.
The team announced Tuesday that he will become a minority owner. Singer Gloria Estefan and her husband, producer Emilio Estefan, also bought a small stake in the club last month.
New Dolphins owner Stephen Ross also began a partnership in May with Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville enterprise, which includes Land Shark Lager. Buffett has yet to accept Ross' invitation to become a minority owner, but the Dolphins' stadium has been renamed Land Shark Stadium for this season. Buffett has also written a song for the team.
Anthony will also perform the national anthem on ESPN's "Monday Night Football" on Oct. 12 against the New York Jets as part of the NFL's celebration of Hispanic Heritage Month.
Anthony is married to singer-actress Jennifer Lopez. He has sold more than 10 million albums and is also an actor.
Ross, a New York real estate billionaire, completed his purchase of the Dolphins in January from Wayne Huizenga and quickly set out to rebrand the franchise. He has said he wants to fill up the stands with "a blend of entertainment and winning football."
