From the time Norka Luque was a child she knew that she was destined to be a singer. Born Norka Dubrazka Soraya Martinez Luque, the Venezuelan songstress spent her nights listening to music until she fell asleep. At the age of five, her parents noticed that she was naturally talented and encouraged her to follow her dreams. By the time she was eight, her passion and love for music became apparent when she gave a riveting performance in a Shakira-inspired musical production.
Later, Norka Luque practiced music, piano, ballet and Flamenco to prepare herself for a magnificent music career. A winner of many talent shows, she has proven that she has the drive to succeed. After graduating from high school, she moved to France to pursue studies in Business Administration. However, while she was pursuing her degree, her mind kept drifting to music. Fortunately, she was able to join a band called Bad Moon Rising, which kept her focused on her singing abilities while honing her musical talent.
Norka’s desire to bring hope to others through her music led her to move to the United States. While living in Miami, she met the renowned, Grammy-award winner, Emilio Estefan. He liked her music and produced her first album. Her first single, “Can I do it Tu,” has earned several awards and a nomination for the best pop female artist for Premios Lo Nuestro. The second single, Miracle, was also a big hit and stayed on the Latin Billboard charts for weeks. It’s a mixture of reggae and Caribbean sounds with a hint of Mediterranean influence. As Latino Show Magazine points out, Norka Luque performed at the Billboard event, she captivated the audience. Since then, her music has gained popularity in Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the United States.
Because of her hard work and dedication, Norka is gaining recognition across the globe. Luque says she wants to use music to make the world a better place. “We as artists have the great ability of bringing a positive message to our fans because the lyrics in our songs transport them to the deepest levels of emotions,” she said.
