Norka Luque’s Music Is Addictive According To The Billboard Music Charts

The fame and the fortune that comes with making it to the top of the music industry attracts musicians from all over the world. But reaching the top isn’t easy. Thousands of people try to break into the music world every year, but very few succeed. Talent is just one of the ingredients needed to produce a hit record and continue to produce hits year after year. It takes a certain style, a unique resilience, and a strong desire to battle the challenges that people face in the music business. Norka Luque, the Venezuelan-born singer, is one of the people that has all the assets to achieve long-lasting stardom in the music world. Norka is not a one-hit wonder. Norka has the talent, education, desire, and the resilience it takes to become the next big star in the pop music world.

Norka worked hard to be discovered. The road to producing her first album took her from Venezuela to France where she studied business during the day and sang in the dance clubs at night and on the weekends. Here small group, Bad Moon Rising, had a unique sound that combined reggae with funk and rock and the clubs were filled every night the band played, and Norka sang. In 2006, Norka decided she was ready to move to Miami where her unique Latino sound would be appreciated. Norka found a job on South Beach, and that was the start of what she calls her cross-over years. The word spread that a young Venezuelan singer was burning up the dance scene in Miami and Emilio Estefan, the famous record producer and husband of Gloria Estefan, was one of the people that heard about her. Emilio and his team, composer Arche Pena and Luigi Giraldo decided to produce Norka’s first album. The first singer from that album was released in 2011. Norka was nominated for best female vocalist of the year when that single, “I Can Do It” was released.

Norka’s second release from that album, Milagro, was an instant hit, and it became a cross-over hit in the dance clubs in the Miami, New York, and Los Angeles. Norka released her third single, Tomorrowland in 2016, and it is climbing the Billboard Charts. Norka’s unique singing style has earned her the right to sing with her childhood idols, and she wouldn’t change a thing about how she got where she is today. Norka is still the same friendly, compassionate and loving woman she has always been in spite of her success. Find Norka Luque on Facebook to learn more about her music.
