Just because yesterday, which happened to be a Monday, was a holiday, it should not mean that you have to be deprived of Music Monday.  Oh no, my friend.  Today, September 6th, Puerto Rican-American musician, singer-songwriter, actor and producer, Marc Anthony, turns 42.  So in honor of his birth, I am dedicating Music Monday Tuesday to […]
