Norka Luque was nominated for Best Female Pop Artist of the Year in 2011 at the Premios Lo Nuestro. Born in Caracas, Venezuela on February 7th, 1986, Norka has been taking the music industry by storm since her first single, “As You Do It”, in 2011 with the guidance of Emilio Estefan, a producer who has won 19 Grammy awards and husband of Gloria Estefan, the famous Cuban American singer.
Beautiful and talented, Norka rapidly rose to the top within the past four years. Her driving force since childhood was music. She was passionate about music at an early age. Although still a child, she knew that she wanted to use music to produce positive energy and joy in people. With her talent and determination, nothing was impossible. She had her first musical production at the tender age of eight. Encouraged by supportive parents who recognized their young daughter’s gift and devotion, they enrolled her to voice classes, piano, ballet and other dance classes. She finished her formal education at the same time.
Norka Luque is extremely intelligent and creative. She can speak French, English and Spanish. She went to France to study business, marketing, fashion and attained a degree in the Culinary Arts. While in France, she joined a band. This was a stepping stone that helped her hone her talent. It was in 2012 when Nokia was in Miami that the legendary music producer Emilio Estefan, impressed with her talent, offered her the opportunity of a lifetime and directed her career. He produced Nokia’s first single, “As You Do It”. The song was immediately successful and brought Nokia her first nomination for best female singer where she competed with stars like Natalia Jimenez, Shakira and Gloria Trevi. To be nominated at the start of her career, speaks volume of Nokia’s talent.
According to Latino Show Magazine, Her second single, Milagro was a collaboration between composers Hermanos Gaitan, Luigi Giraldo, Archie Pena and others. Also produced by Estefan, Milagro was a huge success. Upbeat and danceable, it was a hit in Central, South America and the United States. Other countries in Europe, like Spain, are catching on to the delightful rhythm and message of Milagro. The mixture of reggae and Carribb7ean beat is highly conducive to joy and festivity.
