Natalia Lafourcade recently visited the SiriusXM Latino in New York to promote her most recent album "Mujer Divina, Homenaje a Agustín Lara," which was released last September.

The album is a tribute to one of Mexico's most famous composers, Agustín Lara.

Lafourcade, a Mexican pop-rock singer and songwriter, visited SiriusXM Latino on July 10 to sing some songs off of the album. The Latina has been nominated for several Grammy Awards, including Best Latin Pop Album, Latin Grammy Award for Song of the Year, Latin Grammy Award for Best New Artist, and Latin Grammy Award for Best Female Pop Vocal Album.

She began singing at age 3, and by 4 she knew she wanted to be an artist. Now 29, she has her own band, Natalia y La Forquetina.

"Her primary subjects were pretty standard late-teen fare, gently exasperated expressions of romantic uncertainty," L.A. Times writer Reed Johnson wrote in 2010.

"Her lyrics could mix playfulness with passion, longing for Ricky Martin and lusting after Gael García Bernal. Yet these effusions mostly came across not as fangirl gushing but rather as a sophisticated young woman keeping her humor intact while striving for self-knowledge," he continued. "Like one of those preternaturally flexible but muscly Olympic gymnasts, she was a petite dynamo, effortlessly appealing and wise enough to keep the cuteness meter dialed down to around 6."
