Norka Luque’s Latino Sound Is Finding Its Way Into The Mainstream Music Scene

There hasn’t been a pop music singer that has the ability to cross over into the mainstream music scene since Shakira did it several years ago. But Norka Luque, another Venezuelan singer, is doing just that. Norka’s first album is a hit in the Latino music industry, but her single Milagro, is crossing over, and radio stations around the country are talking about Norka Luque and her unique sound. Norka has what it takes to be an international recording star. She has the voice, beauty, brains and the desire to be the best and it shows. But Norka didn’t just arrive in the States from Venezuela yesterday and race to the top of the dance charts. It’s been a long, arduous road for the Venezuelan beauty, and there have been several bumps in that road that changed the direction of her life.

Norka Luque wasn’t born in poverty in Caracas. Her family provided what she needed to help her pursue a career in music. Norka studied piano and took voice lesson while she was in school. When she graduated from upper school, her parents sent her to France to continue her studies. Norka earned a degree in marketing, fashion, and the culinary arts while she was in France. She also got experience in the French dance clubs when she got a job with the band, Bad Moon Rising. Norka had quite a following in France, but she decided to move to Miami after a Ricky Martin’s concert. Martin’s music was her kind of music, and she knew Miami was the place to get recognized.

Luque started singing in the dance clubs on South Beach when she arrived in Miami. Her unique sound combines Latino pop with reggae and a Mediterranean beat, and it captured the hearts of the clubbers on South Beach. She developed a loyal following, and the word spread there was a Venezuelan singer that had all the ingredients to be a superstar. Emilio Estefan got word that Norka had the voice he needed for his next project. When Emilio heard her sing, he immediately offered her a recording contract, and that changed her life. Estefan is the man behind Shakira, Ricky Martin, Marc Anthony and his wife, Gloria Estefan. Gloria has also played a role in Norka’s career. In fact, some people say Norka reminds them of Gloria in a way. Their voices are different, but their desire to entertain is the same. Follow Norka on Twitter @Norkaluque to learn more.

Taming Wild Hair Using Shea Butter

Shea Butter has gained a reputation around the world for it’s healing and soothing properties, but many people are unaware of the health benefits that raw shea butter can create when applied to the hair. Shea butter has been used for years in various commercial hair care products, including shampoos, conditioners, moisturizers, and protectant oils. The purpose of adding shea butter to these products is usually to tame wild, frizzy, or unruly hair. By using raw shea butter directly on the hair, consumers can gain manageable hair without compromising the health of the hair by using harmful detergents, dyes, and carcinogens that are usually found in commercial hair products.

Applying raw shea butter directly to the hair has a taming effect on hair because of the properties that create shea butter. Organic, raw shea butter is created by taking the shea nuts from a tree that is native to African countries, and pressing them until an oil forms. This oil is then further manipulated until it forms raw shea butter. The overall process of creating shea butter usually takes several villagers a full three days to complete. Because of the complex and time consuming nature of the shea butter’s creation, it possesses several key nutrients that work to thoroughly moisturize hair. The effect is that ordinarily thick, dry, and course hair becomes naturally moisturized and sleek looking.

When shopping for raw shea butter, it is important for consumers to find brands that are committed to producing 100% organic shea butter. Once such company, Eu’Genia Shea has been creating and selling quality shea butter for years. The Eu’Genia Shea brand has become synonymous with fresh, organic supplies. The company streamlines the development of their high quality shea butter by employing natives of African countries to process the butter. Eu’Genia Shea then has the raw shea butter shipped to the United States where it is further nourished by being combined with other essential oils and spices like frankincense and myrrh. Eu’Genia Shea is a company that has, over time, shown its great commitment to its consumers by developing incredibly pure forms of shea butter.
