ABOUT AMBER MONIQUE

Amber Monique, born on March 5th, 1990 is an American singer-songwriter. Born in Cincinnati, Ohio, later relocating to Miami, Fl. she began her musical career singing the national anthem at boxing matches, singing at corporate events, and remixing/covering songs via YouTube. Before entering into the music realm, Amber was involved in hip hop/jazz dance and also belly danced for a couple years. Amber began singing professionally and released her first full-length project entitled, ‘Elevate’.

Shortly after the release of ‘Elevate’, Amber Monique was nominated for ‘Musician of the Year’ in Miami. After climbing up and receiving more notoriety as an R&B artist, Monique began performing at venues in Miami and Atlanta and later began her ‘Save RnB’ movement.  Save RnB captures the old school vibe with a new school feel, forcing both eras to unite and has been recognized as ‘the return of R&B’. With her soft, melodic tone, her ability to hit high notes, and the truth & originality in her lyrics, ‘Save RnB’ captures what a lot of music is missing today. Amber is currently spreading the ‘Save RnB’ mission to the west side and working on her next solo EP to be released in 2015.

Event Sponsor Spotlight: The Flower Bazaar

The Flower Bazaar, located on 5th Street in South Beach between Michigan and Jefferson, opened in 1994 in its current location. The once tiny design studio continued to transform over the years, and in 2011, a French interior designer and decorative painter, Thierry Adam, took over the company.

Since then, it has delivered a sophisticated, cosmopolitan flair to all their events and customers. ImageThe Flower Bazaar sources flowers constantly from the most trusted and reliable sources all over the world. That in turn allows them to deliver emotion and exquisite design to the events and weddings they design, and to the manifestations of affection that are entrusted to their designers every day. Their philosophy is simple, “to be the best, offer exceptional product and create beautiful floral gifts that convey originality and artistic design.” Image

Along with recently hosting a “Coffee with the Chamber,” The Flower Bazaar will soon be celebrating 20 years in Miami Beach, and they are gearing up for “additional growth with new personnel additions in the marketing and sales area, dedicated to commercial and hospitality services,” says partner, Leonardo Lanaro.

Spotlight on Dr. Ino Halegua, The Cardiology Center

“Ninety percent of our business is heart attack prevention, not treatment; many people say ‘I don’t need you yet!’ but in fact they need us more now than ever,” says Dr. Ino Halegua, our August 10th guest on the Miami Beach Chamber Radio Show.

Owner of his own Miami medical practice The Cardiology Center, Dr. Ino is a well-respected and beloved medical connoisseur with an impressive track record. Former Director of Cardiac Rehabilitation at South Miami Hospital and Chief of Medicine at Larkin Hospital, Dr. Ino was born in Greece on December 28, 1947. After moving to New York with his family in 1950, he graduated Cum Laude from the medical school at State University of New York Downstate Medical Campus and completed his medical internship and residency in Internal Medicine and Cardiology at Jackson Memorial Hospital.

In August 1976, Dr. Ino opened his own medical practice here in Miami, and built The Cardiology Center in 1982 to serve the business community’s medical needs. He moved his office within Prime Care of Coral Gables following a 2008 downsize. Ino is particularly focused on preventative medicine and cardiology, and strives to meet the needs of his busy patients by scheduling timely appointments no matter what the exam may be.  Ino most frequently uses the South Miami and Baptist hospitals; he is a member of the Florida Society of Internal Medicine, American Medical Association, American Heart Association of Greater Miami, and the Florida Medical Association.

Ino is, not surprisingly, highly active within the community as well: not only is he affiliated with both the Miami Beach and Coral Gables Chambers of Commerce, but he also sits on the Hearing Research Institute’s Board of Directors. He sponsors countless charity organizations and events as well, such as Miami Project, Best Buddies, Make-A-Wish, Miami Beach Education Foundation, and more. When he is not busy saving the world from heart ailments, he can be found fishing, golfing, traveling or pursuing real estate projects with his daughter Oren and son Scott.
