J.Lo, Marc Anthony Marry

Private ceremony held in California

June 7, 2004 12:00 AM ET
Jennifer Lopez and Marc Anthony were married on Saturday at Lopez's Beverly Hills, California, home, according to Us Weekly.

The marriage follows highly publicized splits for both Lopez and Anthony, who previously dated in 1999. Anthony married former Miss Universe, Dayanara Torres, in 2000. The couple, who have two children, briefly separated before renewing their vows in 2002, only to split again earlier this year. The divorce was finalized last week in the Dominican Republic.

The marriage will be Lopez's third. The singer/actress married waiter, Ojani Noa, in 1997, and dancer, Chris Judd, in 2001. The second of those marriages lasted less than a year, after which Lopez entered two longer-term, and more high-profile, relationships, first with rap mogul Sean "P. Diddy" Combs, and then with actor Ben Affleck. Lopez and Affleck planned to marry last fall, but nixed plans due to excessive media attention. They split shortly afterwards.

According to Us, approximately forty guests attended the private ceremony.

“Try a Little Tenderness”

Otis Redding | 1966

This pop standard had been previously recorded by dozens of artists, including by Bing Crosby 33 years before Otis Redding, who usually wrote his own songs, cut it. It was actually Sam Cooke’s 1964 take, which Redding’s manager played for Otis, that inspired the initially reluctant singer to take on the song. Isaac Hayes, then working as Stax Records’ in-house producer, handled the arrangement, and Booker T. and the MG’s were the backing band. Redding’s soulful version begins quite slowly and tenderly itself before mounting into a rousing, almost religious “You’ve gotta hold her, squeeze her …” climax. “I did that damn song you told me to do,” Redding told his manager. “It’s a brand new song now.”
