    The death of legendary singer Juan Gabriel this weekend moved people around the world to tears - including fellow icon Marc Anthony.

    Anthony grew emotional Sunday night at Radio City Music Hall while performing "Abrazame Muy Fuerte," a Gabriel hit from 2000 that Anthony covered on a 2010 album.

     

    "They just don't write songs like this anymore," Anthony told Billboard in 2010 of the Gabriel tune and others on his "Iconos" album.

    With tears in his eyes and wiping his face repeatedly, Anthony performed Gabriel's song in front of a giant projection of the beloved Mexican singer.

    Gabriel died Sunday morning. (For photos and memories of Gabriel in Spanish, click here for more from Telemundo 47).
