Norka Luque: An Artist Who Is Passionate About Positivity and Hope

Those who hear Norka Luque’s debut song, Milagros (which means miracles), know that she has something special. There is a certain type of magic that can only be nurtured in a person that truly believes in miracles and has unshakable faith. Norka’s story is one that might seem a little lucky because she was discovered by Emilio Estefan Jr, who is a very successful music producer. All she needed to do was sing, and he was hooked. He offered her an opportunity to make a song that hit the top of the Latin Music Billboards.

Still, Norka would not say that what happened was luck but rather it was one of those moments when life grants you a miracle, which she thinks is something that happens to everyone. She wants to bring that unbelievable faith to all her music and inspire listeners to believe again and provide strength to help them face every day with their head held high.

Luque Luque has been hoping to live off her music and her art for some time. She began to sing at a very young age; in fact, she recorded her first song around the age of 8. Norka recorded a cover for one of Shakira’s earliest hits, and people loved it. Her parents supported her efforts as long as she did not neglect her education. Norka’s parents were firm believers in having a back-up plan, though they believed wholeheartedly in her talents. Luque understood her parents and took heed as she did continue her studies.

This young artist has continued her rise to fame and had one of her songs nominated for Premios Lo Nuestro back in 2011. She actually was competing against some of her idols like Shakira, Gloria Trevi, and Natalia Jimenez. To be next to some of these artists was a dream come true for Norkam, though it was somewhat unbelievable to her, too.

Most of her fans, including Emilio, expect a lot from the young talent, and Luque plans to deliver music that reigns true to her heart. She does not want to create songs that she is not passionate about, because she believes that her audience will notice that she was disconnected from the words. Norka is very protective of her work, image, and sound. Luque definitely is an artist on the rise who knows who she is. Check out her Soundcloud to see more of the music Norka is into.
