Anthony is 50-year-old, is married to Heather M. Beverly and has two gorgeous daughters.

However, he seems to spend most of his time with his iconic father and the rest of the Maze band traveling around the world. They just finished a string of concerts around Europe, and Anthony couldn't wait to go back home, according to his Instagram.

While touring around with the "old man" as he calls Frankie, Anthony shared some pictures and videos with the singer. The resemblance between the men is impressive, and some fans have pointed out Anthony looks a lot like a young Frankie.

"Last night in Atl... Love it when the crowd sings the songs at the top of their lungs. The Old Man slayed them last night! #BeforeILetGo," he captioned one of the videos.

In 2009, Anthony, who is also a producer, organized a tribute to honor his father and Maze for their achievements in the music industry. The album titled, "Silky Soul Music… An All-Star Tribute to Maze Featuring Frankie Beverly" featured singers like Joe, Mary J. Blige, Musiq Soulchild, The Clark Sisters, Mint Condition and more, who covered Maze songs.

"I decided to do a tribute to my father and Maze because it was time for their musical contributions to be recognized and introduced to a whole new generation of fans through artists who embody the spirit of their music.,” explained Anthony to Essence at the time, and continued:

“My fondest memory with my father is spending every summer of my childhood on the road with him. I saw and learned so much about music and how he did his thing. it was incredible to see the audience’s reaction show after show and year after year. There’s always been magic between him, the band and the audience.”

The record was released digitally through Brantera Music Group, Inc. Anthony's and his wife's co-owned production and consulting company.

Now 71. Frankie and Maze keep entertaining audiences after 40 years in the industry. While they sold records and are still capable of filling coliseums or amphitheaters, they never got recognition from the music industry officials. No Grammys, no induction into the Hall of Fame.

Frankie's close friend, Tavis Smiley, explained the musician's mindset to The Undefeated saying:

"I think Frankie stopped caring long ago about accolades and honors. I think the most important thing [to him] is that it comes from the people. Being honored by an institution is wonderful … but being loved by individuals is a far greater thing. And that’s what Frankie Beverly has."
