Who is Don Omar?

Thanks to Time Warner Cable, LatinoLA.com offered two pairs of tickets to see Don Omar in concert at Nokia Live L.A. Live on November 23. We asked our newsletter subscribers (you can join at: http://latinola.com/join.php) to reply to the question: "Who is Don Omar?"

The winner: The first person who answered with the best question would win a pair of tix. And if we received another best answer, we'd give away another pair of tix. Make sense? Not to us. But here are the answers -- in order received -- and once El Editor figures it out, he'll notify the two winners.

S. writes: "Don Omar is one of reggaeton's first international superstar, who was born in Carolina, Puerto Rico. Who was born on February 10, 1978.Don Omar grew up in Villa Palmera, Puerto Rico,he was once a Christian Rapper and a preacher. But stopped being a preacher, because he became disillusioned about the song "Aunque te Fuiste". In the early 2000's he worked with Luny Tunes. He began a burgeoning reggaeton movement sweeping through Puerto Rico.He got a big break working with H?®ctor el Bambino (aka H?®ctor el Father) of the popular duo H?®ctor & Tito. Initially Omar produced and wrote songs for the duo, but it wasn't long before he was given the opportunity to collaborate with them vocally, as featured on the song "A la Reconquista." His solo career took off around this same time, with one of his first hits being "Desde Que Llego" in 2002. He made his album debut the following year on the VI Music label. In 2005 "Reggaeton Latino," became one of the style's first genuine crossover hits. Thank you, I hope to hear from you, I hope that I am the WINNER!!!!!"
