The 48-year-old singer performed a handful of his most popular songs, which included: “Vivir Mi Vida,” “I Need to Know,” and “Tu Amor Me Hace Bien.”

Anthony announced the heartbreaking news of his mother’s passing on Thursday, July 27, on Twitter.

“Today at 12:10pm my family’s hero, our rock, our protector, inspiration and now ANGEL passed away,” he said.

Anthony added, “She left in peace, accompanied by all your prayers and well wishes for which we thank you all.”

The star concluded the message saying, “Mami, I’m going to miss you so much!”

Prior to his mother’s passing, the hit-maker took to Twitter on Sunday, July 23, to ask fans to pray for his mother, who was hospitalized in Puerto Rico at the time.
