Singer, actress, and TV personality Jennifer Lopez is widely considered to be one of the most influential Latin stars in the world. After getting her start as a chorus girl and backup dancer, J.Lo has gone on to star in more than 30 movies, release numerous albums, and become the highest-paid Latin entertainer in the United States. Despite criticism, Jennifer is one of the few stars to have successfully made the transition from acting to the music industry. Her debut album, On the 6, spawned the singles “If You Had My Love” and “Waiting for Tonight,” while future records featured hits such as “Love Don’t Cost a Thing” and “On the Floor”—the latter of which is among the top 100 best-selling digital singles of all time. Considered one of pop culture’s greatest icons, J.Lo has earned a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, been named the first female recipient of the Billboard Icon Award, and has continued to sell out concerts both at home and around the world. Grab tickets to see Jenny from the Block shake her famous derriere in her current headlining residency in Las Vegas.
Brought up in a relatively poor family in the New York borough of The Bronx, Jennifer Lopez was determined to make a name for herself—though fame didn’t exactly seem possible at the time. After landing a small role in a low-budget film, she went on to perform in regional productions of musicals, work as a backup dancer for New Kids on the Block, and eventually get her first high-profile job as a Fly Girl on the TV show In Living Color. In 1993, she decided to pursue acting full-time, and over the next 6 years appeared in 10 films, including the biopic of Tejano music star Selena Quintanilla-Pérez. It was in 1999 when J.Lo was really thrust into the spotlight as she decided to focus her attention on singing and release her first very album. She put out 6 more records before ever embarking on a solo concert tour, but when she did, she unsurprisingly took the world by storm. Described as an explosion of color and sound, her sparkling production wowed audience members and became one of the world’s highest-grossing tours of the year. In 2018, you can see Jenny bring back her trademark vocals and provocative choreography with tickets to her All I Have residency at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas.
