During the '90s, Domingo Quiñones became one of the biggest salsa stars in Puerto Rico, a combination singer/songwriter with an aggressive, intense live show which earned accolades in Latin America as well as the United States. Thanks to a musical education courtesy of his parents, Quiñones grew up singing traditional forms such as Cuban charangas, as well as mainline salsa. By the time of his debut album, 1990's ...Es Mi Nombre, the vocalist was proficient in salsa, bachata and rumba as well. After overcoming a drug-dependency problem with a religious conversion, Quiñones became a popular performer in Puerto Rico with subsequent albums such as En La Intimidad and Se Necesita un Milagro.
In 1998, he demonstrated his acting abilities in the rock opera Jesus Christ Superstar, together with Olga Tañón, Michael Stuart and Tito Auger of the music group Fiel à la Vega. This was followed by playing the role of the legendary singer Héctor Lavoe in the New York play, Quien Mato a Héctor Lavoe? with songs like "La Voz de Siempre". The play and his performance won kudos from the critics including the New York Times, proclaiming that Quiñones captured the very essence of Lavoe's life and music.
