Anthony grew up in Bushwick, Brooklyn in the projects. When he was little, he used to sit by the window and look out at his neighborhood and talk about how he didn't want to be there anymore. His mom - a strong, single mother - would laugh and ask him, "Where do you wanna be?" But Anthony couldn't put his feelings into words. He didn't know exactly why, but he just felt like he was destined for something else. He felt like he was locked inside a box he couldn't escape from.

Anthony always loved to sing, so he decided to audition for a talent show during his junior year of high school. But to his surprise, he was actually auditioning for the school play! The school's drama teacher and director inspired him to continue auditioning, and Anthony decided to take her advice. He was later cast as one of the lead roles, and as he was up on stage, he felt an overwhelming sense of joy. He felt like he finally found his true calling - he felt like he became a superhero on stage. As time went by, Anthony continued to perform throughout high school.

One day, as he was at rehearsal for a community theater play, Sara Steinweiss came to visit him. She urged him to apply to a competitive musical theater program. As much as Anthony would have loved to attend that school, he didn't think he'd ever have a chance getting in, as he had no formal training. But with Sara's advice, and through his family's support, he decided to give it a shot. He auditioned for the program, and to his surprise, he got in!

However, reality set in when the school sent over their welcome packet. He quickly learned that, in order to attend the school, he would have to take out a huge loan from the bank. He felt incredibly discouraged and crushed.

When Sara Steinweiss learned about the situation, she wrote to The Jerry Seinfeld Foundation and told them all about how special Anthony was. The organization decided they wanted to meet Anthony, so he had an incredible meeting with a wonderful woman from the foundation - Kate Fenneman. Kate was inspired by Anthony's story and talent, so they decided to offer him the opportunity of a lifetime - they decided to pay for his college tuition, and Anthony was able to go to musical theater school.

From them on, Anthony worked as hard as he possibly could to pursue his dream and become a professional performer. Since then, he has starred in Hamilton on Broadway, Bradley Cooper's "A Star Is Born," and many other incredible projects. He signed a record deal with Republic Records, and he is currently working on the upcoming film "In The Heights" as the lead role.

Without a doubt, Anthony's life has been an incredible journey - from hardship, to Hamilton, to Hollywood!
