Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez went back to school in the Bronx Tuesday to hold a press conference about their upcoming tour. Elementary students at P.S. 36 Unionport School were lined up outside and inside the school, shaking orange pom-poms and chanting “J.Lo and Marc” as cameras rolled. After a trip through the school hallways, the couple was ushered into an assembly hall where the audience was a mix of screaming kids – with more pom-poms – and members of the media. Although she attended a different school in the Bronx, she felt right at home with the screaming kids. “You can be rowdy, it’s okay. We’re in the Bronx!” Lopez told the children. Lopez credits her Bronx upbringing for giving her a strong foundation in life. “This is my core, this is where my stability was built,” she said. “Everything that I’ve been able to accomplish, everything that I go through, all the highs and lows, whatever it is, I get through it because of where I came from. And I came from here.” Lopez and Anthony kick off their concert tour in Atlantic City Friday. It’s the first time Lopez has ever toured, even though she’s released six albums. Lopez and Anthony also announced that they have selected the ING Run For Something Better Campaign as the chosen charity for their tour. The charity supports community and school-based running programs for kids. The North American tour will run through Nov. 4, ending with a concert in Orlando.
