Latino Sensation Norka Luque Is One Of The Best Singers In Music Today

What makes a good singer great? The music people think talent, exposure, help, and luck are the defining qualities that separate good from great. Those qualities are important, but there is something invisible, something subjective and something spiritual that creates greatness. Not all singers have all the qualities, but Venezuelan singing artist Norka Luque has all of them and more. Norka is destined to be one of the top Latino singers of all time, according to people like Emilio Estefan, Luigi Giraldo, and Archie Pena. Those men should know. That have worked with the top female vocalists in the Latino community for years. Estefan married Gloria Fajardo. Fajardo became Gloria Estefan, one of best Latino singers of all time. Emilio, Archie, and Luigi have also worked with Shakira, Natalia Jiménez, and Gloria Trevi as well as other great Latino artists. The three men agree that Norka Luque is destined to be the next Gloria Estefan even though their music preferences are completely different.

Norka was born in Venezuela, and she grew up in Caracas. Her idol was Shakira when she was younger, and she promised herself she would meet Shakira one day. Norka made that promise come true when she recorded her first album with Emilio and his team. Norka also met Gloria Estefan, and they became friends. The critics loved Norka’s first album. The first single released from that album put her in contention for the best female vocalist of the year award, in 2011. The second cut from the album stayed on the music charts in the United States, South America, and Puerto Rico long enough to give Norka national exposure in all of those markets.

Great singing artists are not defined by one album. Great artists have several albums in the marketplace and Norka is working toward that end with Estefan and company. But it’s easy to get burnt out in the music business. In order to be recognized concerts, guest appearances on local and national TV and positive articles must be part of the everyday grind to the top where everyone knows your name and your music. Norka isn’t stopping till she gets there.

Norka knows that patience and good advice are the keys to success. She learned how to be patient when she was in France going to school, and she learned how to follow good advice from her parents that pushed her to take vocal and piano lessons. Norka Luque has all the ingredients to be a superstar. All she needs is a little more time.

Beauty Writer Experiences Who What Where and WEN by Chaz for Hair Care

Your crowning glory is very important, especially if you’re a woman. The more good hair days you have, the happier and more confident you appear. That’s why the proper hair care routine is essential, and the products on store shelves at the moment, aren’t doing you any favors.

Just ask beauty blogger Emily McClure. She will tell you that her mane is naturally fine, greasy and unruly and that she really dreams about Hollywood hair. Emily battles her limp locks daily and decided to try the famous WEN by Chaz no-lather shampoo system for fabulous, shiny tresses.

WEN‘s a well-respected brand that’s loved around the world. Chaz Dean is the popular west coast stylist-to-the-stars who invented the WEN by Chaz system. He removed the harmful sulfates from lather shampoos and gooey conditioners and replaced them with a one-bottle treatment full of natural, healthy botanical. WEN delivers incredible, shine, bounce and strength to hair of any type. He sells his products exclusively on Amazon and high end cosmetics stores like sephora.

Emily planned on a 7-day personal WEN hair challenge and snapped daily photos of her hair and kept a hair log. She chose the FIG cleansing conditioner and hopped into the shower for her daily wash.

Emily loved the feel of the unique cleansing conditioner, because it made her hair soft to the texture. After she blow-dried and styled, she was impressed with the results. The hair selfies Emily took show a lovely woman with hair that looks super shiny, big and has movement. When Emily met her friends one evening for drinks, they could all tell immediately that Emily had new and improved hair.

Emily concluded that Wen gives superior results if you can stick to the daily AM WEN wash. If you go off the routine, your locks will not look as bouncy. Still, a wonderful experience for Emily.

Goettl Air Conditioning Poised for Comeback

After what might have resulted in a total closure of Goettl Air Conditioning, new owner Ken Goodrich was able to make a way for the company. Initially the quick expansion of the company was done without a stable and clear plan, leading to confusion, business marketing that was not standard throughout the business, and a lack of leadership. Goodrich saw the potential and knew that Goettl had always been a name that was respected in the community, so he decided to take a risk and rebrand the company.

Goettl Building off Rock-solid Foundation

In less than two years Goettl has been turned around, restructured, and is once again competing for a fair share of the market. Goettl has been a family brand for decades, a respected family brand that grew from just a single store to the regional chain that it is today. Servicing both residential and commercial properties, Goettl’s servicemen and women are well trained and versed in all areas of HVAC installation and repair. With the new measures that have been put in place Goettl customers can expect the the best in service and customer service from the technicians that answer the call.

New owner, Ken Goodrich understands how vital the community’s trust in a company is, because without them there is no company to run. For this reason, Goettl has invested to several areas of the community. Everything from educational scholarships to new home owner guides have been created and made available in order to re-establish any trust in the company that was lost, or questioned. There is still plenty of local competition, but the company is now poised to compete at the same level as it once did prior to its decline in customer service for air conditioning. Clients serviced prior to purchasing the company are being revisited with complimentary service to ensure their units are properly running.

A Great Education

Before becoming a doctor, Walden had to find the right path for her. Even when she was small, she knew that medicine was going to be her field.

This is why Walden decided on the field of plastics. Plastics allows her to directly help patients look and feel better. It also allows her to be part of a field where she knows she can truly make a difference in the lives of her many happy patients.

While New York City was ideal to help her learn more about her intended field, it was not her home. That home was Austin and that was where she came back. After giving birth to two healthy twin boys, she knew that her best shot at making an ideal life for them was to be back in Austin with her family. She remains extremely happy with her decision.
