It was the 42-year-old's only comment on the subject at the event, but his remark attracted great applause and cheers from the audience, Colombia's Caracol television network reported.
The TV network also reported that Anthony's management went to great lengths to shield the singer from the press at the Parque Simon Bolivar stadium, and that the security measures around him were 'extreme' to prevent him having to answer questions.
Marc sang 15 of his hits including Contra la Corriente (Against the Current), Valio la Pena (It Was Worth It), and Tu Amor Me Hace Bien (Your Love Does Me Good).
