People who put their hearts and soul into their music make some of the best songwriters. They sing what they feel in their soul. Norka Luque is one of these special artists. Hailing from Venezuela, Luque believes in making her music positive. She is a superstar in her country and will soon be known around the world.
Her family supported her when she made her first album in 2011. All during her childhood, she took lessons in singing and on the piano. Her parents were quite happy that she put her years of work to good use. One of the first people to notice her talent was Luis Miguel. He was doing a musical with Shakira, and he chose Luque to perform with the show. It was her first chance to see what being a star was all about. After working with Shakira, Luque was a regular singer in local nightclubs. She sang with the group Bad Moon Rising as their lead vocalist.
Luque made a difficult decision to leave her homeland and live in Miami, FL. She sang in several Miami nightclubs and had the luck of meeting Emilio Estefan, Jr. He loved her music and later became her mentor and produced her work.
This was the beginning of Norka Music Production LLC. She was nominated for Female Pop Artist of the Year for her debut single, Can I Do It Tu”. For nearly 15 weeks, it was the number one song in her homeland of Venezuela. In an effort to reach a bigger audience, she had her song remixed by El Cata and DJ Ralphi Rosario. The new work helped her get to number 11 on the Latin Music Billboard.
When she was asked about musicians who inspired her, she mentioned the Ricky Martin concert she attended as a teenager. She admired the passion that he had for his music and audience. Others who inspire her include George Michael, Jay-Z, and the band Nirvana.
Her Facebook page is evidence that Luque is well on her way to being a great Latin singing sensation. There are several songs and records in the making. It will not be long until the whole world will be singing the music made by Norka Luque.
