Raulín Rodríguez (from: wikipedia)

Born in San Fernando de Monte Cristi, Monte Cristi in the Dominican Republic on June 16, 1970,related to the Zapata family of Monte cristi is one of the first major bachata artists to have national success and popularize this style of music in his country. Born in the northwest coast of the island, he toured with Antony Santos as a guitar player at age fifteen, and then went on to own band. He has had several international hits, including the song, Nereyda. While traditional bachata songs were often risque and suggestive, Raulin's idealized romantic lyrics helped the style achieve general social acceptability and to receive radio play. Raulin is known for crying during some performances and he also appears to be crying on photos used for his album covers.
