Norka Luque Is Following Her Dream And The Music World Loves Her For It

Shakira is the most recognized Venezuelan recording artist in the world today. But that title may not be hers for much longer. There’s another Venezuelan singer that is turning heads and creating a buzz in the record world. Her name is Norka Luque. Shakira has always been Norka’s idol. Norka dreamed of becoming a singer like Shakira, and she has accomplished that mission. Norka was nominated for the female vocalist of the year award in 2011, for her single, “Can I Do It Tu.” Her 2012 single, “Milagro” hit number 11 on the Billboard Magazine’s top recordings list, and her 2016 release is already creating talk about another nomination.

Norka was born in Caracas, and her full name is Norka Dubrazka Soraya Martínez Luque, but just like her idol, her fans just call her Norka. Norka began her musical career at eight. She was cast in a musical that honored the music of Shakira, and from that performance came a love for Shakira and her music. Norka studied piano and took voice lessons, but she also wanted to learn about business. Her parents supported her singing career, but they also wanted her to complete her education. Norka went to France after completing high school and took business administration courses. She liked school, but her singing was still priority number one. Norka joined a small group that played in the dance clubs on the weekends, and that experience gave her the confidence to continue to follow her dream.

In 2007, she made another life changing decision. She went to a Ricky Martin concert and decided she wanted to move to Ft. Lauderdale after reading Ricky’s bio. Norka followed her instincts. She moved to Miami and got a singing job in one of the Latino dance clubs. Norka developed a loyal following, and before she knew it, the club was packed with dancers seven days a week. Norka’s name was being dropped by people in the industry, and when Emilio Estefan heard a recording of one of her performances from a friend, he knew he had to offer her a record deal before someone else did. The rest of the story is music history. Norka’s style and energy have turned the Latino community upside down. Thanks to Estefan and Latino composer Archie Pena, Norka is known throughout Latin America, and her name and music are topics of conversation in the mainstream music scene.

Businesses can Benefit from a Wikipedia Page

Almost every major business has a Wikipedia page. People go to Wikipedia in order to get information on topics that they are interested. One of the main draws of Wikipedia is that there is information on almost every topic that anyone is interested in. Wikipedia has information up on businesses, clothing, history, movies, and even video games. A lot of small businesses now make a Wikipedia page so that they can get awareness out about their business or anything else that they want people to know about. However, there are a few guidelines that should be followed in order to create and edit a Wikipedia page up without it getting banned.

One guideline is that the business or topic that one is creating a page on is renowned. For instance, if someone is promoting his own business, it must be a well known business that has articles written about it. These articles have to be published online so that others can read it. Of course, one has to create an account on Wikipedia in order to submit content. Afterwards, one has to find articles on his business that has a lot of information so that he can prove to Wikipedia that his business has a lot of visibility. If all of these guidelines are being met, then Wikipedia business page creation is possible.

All of this can be overwhelming for someone who hasn’t created a Wikipedia page before. Fortunately, there are professionals that could put together a Wikipedia page. One company is Get Your Wiki. At Get Your Wiki you can hire Wikipedia editors to put together a Wikipedia page that very informative. They will make sure all of the facts are checked. They will also make sure to provide sources for the information that is presented about the company of their clients by regularly making Wikipedia updates. They will also make sure that content they provide is optimized for search engines. This would be a good way to spread awareness about a business of any size.

Doug Levitt has been doing this sense some of the recent crises that hit the United States. He has seen how people that are at a disadvantage are treated. He wants to make sure that they are given the attention that they need.
