The music industry needs fresh talent. The music business is a nonstop revolving door where artists come and go like shoppers in a mall. Most musicians practice their trade because they love what they do. Becoming famous is a perk that few of them achieve in their musical careers. But that doesn’t stop them from performing every day. Music is the innate love of sound and poetry blended into harmonious melodies filled with individual expressions. Some of those expressions hit a nerve in all music lovers, and that’s when artists become famous. It doesn’t matter where those artists come from, or what they look like when their talent is showcased in a particular musical genre. A good example of a musician that has the attention of music lovers from all walks of life is Norka Luque. Luque is the Venezuelan-born artist that is destined to be a music legend, according to some music executives.
Miami is the mecca for Latino musicians. Artists that want to break into the big time in Latino music come to Miami, and they take a shot at being discovered. Norka Luque moved to Miami when she was still in school. Her parents recognized her musical abilities when she performed in a musical in Venezuela when she was eight. The Luque’s decided to move to the Miami area, so Norka could take voice and piano lesson while she attended high school. Norka decided to study in France, and she spent four years there. She didn’t give up music while she was studying fashion, the culinary arts, and business, however. She joined a small group called Bad Moon Rising, and she became the lead singer. Her time with the band gave her the confidence she needed to pursue music as a career. But she didn’t choose music right away. Norka worked in the financial business in Monte Carlo before she returned to her musical roots.
In 2007, Norka attended a Ricky Martin concert, and that was the catalyst she needed to move back to Florida. Norka decided to sing in a club on South Beach, and that’s when her big break came. Word got back to music producer Emilio Estefan that Norka had the voice he was looking for. Estefan offered her a recording contract, and Norka started working with the producer that made the Miami Sound Machine a worldwide sensation.
Norka had to take a break in 2015 because of health issues, but she’s back, and her music is climbing up the music charts again.
