CORAL GABLES, Fla. (April 26, 2013)-- Reggaeton star Don Omar was the top winner at the Billboard Latin Music Awards, taking home 10 prizes Thursday at the annual show honoring Spanish-language songs and performers.
The late Mexican-American singer Jenni Rivera won six prizes awards including artist of the year.
Her parents and two of her children accepted the prize on her behalf.
The California-born superstar was killed in a plane accident last year in Mexico.
The show paid homage to Rivera with a tribute that included clips from live performances and her reality television show.
Her brother Juan Rivera also sang his sister's song, "No Llega el Olvido."
The three-hour show, which also included performances from Marc Anthony, Daddy Yankee and Juan Luis Guerra, was broadcast live Thursday evening on Telemundo.
