Many people think she has a sound similar to singer Shakira, who made her big debut in the middle 1990s.
Besides her music, Luque can be admired for her courage in the face of adversity. In 2007, she had a setback when she was diagnosed with epilepsy. The Latin singer did not let this stop her from realizing her dream as a successful singer.
