About MeNoor Kamil aka Norelle, became known to Norwegians through the popular TV3-production "Paradise Hotel" in 2009. After an extensive selection process which laid particular emphasis on suitability, personal qualities and what later was often referred to as the x-factor, she was selected from more than 4,000 applicants, along with only 12 other participants. The recording took place in luxurious surroundings in Mexico during January 7th - February 27th 2009 and had a daily viewer rate of 400 hundred thousand viewers. The concept and the participants attracted great attention, and they are still referred to regularly in the media. Noor participated in 38 of the 40 episodes, and is undoubtedly the participant who have been given most attention afterwards.
The exposure through Paradise hotel led to a number of offers from various medias, and she chose for a period to focus on her carreer as an upcoming model/singer/songwriter. She appeared in numerous editions in the magazine press and newspapers, and was also massively exposed as a model. Working as a model from the age of 16, she has been engaged to large international companies such as Bjorn Borg, Billabong and Wella.
She was also 2 years in a row chosen as one of the “100 sexiest women in the world” by FHM, with celebrities like Megan Fox, Penelope Cruz, Eva Mendez and Rihanna.
Noor has now chosen to fully concentrate on her great passion - music. Her debut single "Indestructible" was produced by the American producer Kenshiro Lowes, who contacted Noor in 2009. The cooperation they initiated resulted in an exciting and energetic song, that by November 2011 has reached about 100 000 views on youtube. The music video are also regularly shown on The Voice TV, a music channel that on a daily basis has more than 700 000 individual viewers.
Noor has had a significant and exciting voice development and has worked with skilled norwegian producers.
A new and exciting partnership was established through her second single "Work for me". The song is mixed by Miles Walker from New York. Walker stands partly behind Rihanna's hugely popular "Only Girl", "S & M" and "Whats my name". In addition, he has worked with Stargate for artists like Katy Perry and Britney Spears. Noor moved to the United States in December 2011 to further develop cooperations within the music business.

Her enthusiasm, her skills and her distinct and strong flair for quality makes her a unique creative partner for anyone who dares to live out their dreams through both strong effort, playfullness and joy, and for anyone who strongly wishes to give their contribution in making this world a better place for all."
Pia Ruud, Make-up and hairstylist:
"Not only beautiful and talented, also inspiring and loving. I have always believed that beauty is from within, and this woman is living up to that. With her humble and loving personality and with a smile and laughter that makes my hard work so much easier, I am proud and honored to work with this talented lady, Norelle."
Edmond Yang, Art Director/Designer:
“Working with Norelle has been a real pleasure. She is very dedicated, and I am continually amazed how professional she has been all along.
Looking forward to work with Norelle again, and I can't wait for her next releases. I wish her luck in everything she does.”
Marie Lindeman Johansen, Photographer:
“My first photo-shoot with Norelle was set up through a business associate who recommended us to work together. I took on the assignment because I thought she would have the potential to become a beautiful pinup girl, and deserved a photographer which wouldn't just undress her to show flesh, but to show her beauty in an interesting setting.
When we met up, she was really into trying out something new. She did have some bad habits from previous shoots, as pouting her mouth a bit too much, but she learns really quickly; and suddenly she sat in front of me like a real movie star from the 40's. The first photo-shoot we had turned out quite sophisticated, and looked nothing like the pictures I had seen of her before. I was glad to hear she loved them too!
Though we might seem like quite different personalities, I guess what binds us together, is that we both tries to be ourselves completely at all time. This again makes the collaboration more interesting. Ever since our first shoot I must admit Norelle has been my favorite girl to work with. Not only has she got a great look, she also has an amazing way to treat other people. She has a strong will and she doesn't put up with unprofessional behavior, though she is always open for new ideas and gives people the chance to prove themselves.
As a photographer, I soon fell in love with her looks, and as a person I gradually fell in love with her personality. I recon you will too as long as you treat her right!”
