Norka Martinez Luque was born in Caracas, Venezuela’s busiest city. Unlike other children who grow not knowing their talents, Ms. Martinez discovered her talent at a young age. She was only eight years when she discovered her passion for singing. As a child, she took part in numerous competitions including the Venezuelan folk music competition “Festival of Gaitas” and the “Golden Voice.”
According to Luque’s profile, she had a great childhood filled with art lessons. Her parents went an extra mile to ensure that she took instrument, dance and singing lessons. We also learn that she slept to tunes from some of the greatest Latin musicians.
Upon completing high school, she moved to a foreign country to further her academic studies. She landed in a French college where she took a course in business administration. Even while in this school, she did not forget about her ambition of becoming a professional singer. She created time to perform in nightclubs in France.
An opportunity came knocking when a rock group called Bad Moon Rising became interested in her unique voice. The beautiful Venezuelan songbird joined the band as a lead singer. They traveled in different cities in France performing and entertaining French club goers. Luque says that her time with the band enabled her to meet several personalities in the European music community.
After four years with the band, it was time to move on. Ms. Martinez moved to Monaco where she landed a banking career. Even though there are attractive perks that come with a banking career, Luque gave all these up. She realized that the banking career killed her inborn creativity.
Upon this realization, Ms. Martinez packed her bags and moved to the United States to pursue music as a career. She found a home in Miami, the largest city with Cuban-Americans. She started a solo career that did not pick up until 2008 when she met the Latino music producer, Mr. Estefan.
The Grammy Award-winning producer saw something in Norka Luque. He, therefore, signed her to his record label Crescent Moon Records. In 2011, Luque’s first studio album was out. This album took her career to new heights. This album contained international hits such as “As You Do It” and “Milagro.”
Norka Luque is guided in her career by different professionals in the music industry. Some of them include Hermanos Gaitán, Luigi Giraldo, Archie Pena and Fito Blanko. She has a brand new single dubbed “Tomorrowland.” This track has also been received well by her fans.
