Platinum selling recording artists, Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony, are one of the entertainment world's most powerful couples and are putting their fame to good use with an upcoming charity performance.

Lopez and Anthony are teaming up to make a special performance at the upcoming Four Seasons of Hope gala to raise money for Lopez's Maribel Foundation – a not-for-profit organization that promotes greater access to healthcare for women and children through its commitment to telemedicine.

Before their marriage in June 2004, the couple were long time friends and worked together on a number of music videos prior to tying the knot.

In early 2004, Lopez and Anthony recorded a duet for one of Lopez's films called "Shall we Dance?" and the two have since collaborated on a number of projects.

The couple maintain a very private family life and have an often defensive relationship with the media.

In 2008, Lopez gave birth to fraternal twins named Emme Maribel Muñiz, and Maximilian David Muñiz.

Lopez is best known as one of the most successful Hispanic entertainers in the U.S. - having recorded countless albums, performed in a number of profitable films and even creating her own fashion label.

"Forbes" magazine placed Lopez as the richest Latin American in Hollywood and she has also sold more than 25 million albums worldwide.

Anthony is also an extremely successful singer, having won five Grammy awards and selling over 10 million albums worldwide.

    Why wasn't Fresh Out the Oven the lead single for her new cd? Why didn't she perform that one instead of Louboutins? It would have made a much bigger impact and would have probably been a huge hit if she had. Bad judgment.

    1. Having already thoroughly conquered film, music, dance, and business, do you have any desire or plans to conquer Broadway? Would you ever return to television?

    2. Does your production company, Nuyorican Productions, have any upcoming projects? If so, can you talk about them.

    1. I'm happy to see that you're appearing on the tv series 'Hawthorne' soon. Are there any other acting projects that you're working on? Would you ever appear on the tv show 'True Blood' if asked (fingers crossed!)?

    To Jennifer:
    1. It seems like you are a little bit disconnected of the latin market, I mean, since a long time ago you don't do any promotion in latinamerica (except for the Festival in Guatemala and the PR Parade but that wasn't exactly a promotion) Do you have plans to visit some latin countries like México, Brazil, Argentina. with the promotion of your new album or with any other project?

    2. Taliking about your new album, when it's going to be relased? A lot of fans are very anxious to know at least the single release!


    3. As influential latin people, What's your opinon about the actual latin situation around the globe, I mean, not only about the Arizona law, the World Cup and more?

    for JLo: To get pregnant did you resource to IVF? If so, where, would you be kind enough to provide the Dr.'s name? There are many couples looking for good IVF doctors, and it's very difficult for regular people like me for example (not with the $$$$) to find a good one. I have had many treatments w/out luck, now working on adoption but if I had a good source I would try my hardest to give it one more try.
    for Marc: You are the best, i have always loved your music, keep it coming... Salsa romantica is the best!

    I saw you both at a private concert sponsored by Cingular back in South Beach, Miami (2004 or 2005) can't remember... It was awesome!

    So... I wonder when is jenny going to do a world tour!!!

    I'm from Brazil and Jen is a really big part of my life and made me love music and dance and arts in general!
    I got a kinda funny story!
    When I was 7 I heard her song "Love Don't Coast a Thing" on the radio and just got addicted to it! I would stay by the radio all day chanching stations to see if that song would play again!
    So, my parents took me to a music store and they picked "J.LO" up and asked the guy who worked there if he could play the song for me so I could see if that was the one! After I heard my dad bought it to mee! As soon as got home I put the cd on and starter hearing the song on and on trying to read the lyrics and sing along! (I was 7, I didn't even know Portuguese right, imagine Eenglish!!!!)
    Now I'm 18 and I still love Jenny SO much, and musci is a big part of my life, and she made me love it!
    I wish someday i could meet her and thank her, but I think it's difficul to happen!

    If only she did a world tour and came to Brazil!!!!

    Actually, we have a community here in Brazil dedicated for Jenny and it has almost 90.000 people in it! We really love her!!!
