MIAMI (CBSMiami) – Hillary Clinton made a surprise appearance at the Marc Anthony concert at the AmericanAirlines Arena Friday.

CBS4’s Entertainment Reporter Lisa Petrillo, who was there on special assignment for Entertainment Tonight, spoke exclusively with Clinton who said she was grateful for the singer’s support.

“It’s a nice opening door to the Latin community,” Petrillo told her.

“Well it’s a very important opportunity to really get my message out through someone who has had so much credibility, who has done so much in their lifetime. I am appreciative of that,” Clinton responded.

“Can you do the salsa?” Petrillo asked.

“He told me he would give me salsa lessons in the white house,” Clinton joked.

Clinton told CBS4 she attended the concert because mixing politics and entertainment allows candidates to reach new audiences.

Launched her new initiative “Latinos for Hillary.”

Earlier on Friday, the Democratic frontrunner hosted an event at Broward College.

Clinton talked about fighting the effort to defund Planned Parenthood and raising the minimum wage.

She also brought up the mass shooting in Oregon, saying she’ll push for sensible gun control laws.
