When Norka Martinez Luque started out as a student in a French business school in France, she never imagined that she would eventually become one of the world’s most famous Latin pop stars. She, however, knew that she wasn’t cut out for a business career and it wasn’t going to be the end of the line for her.
While she completed her degree in Business Administration, she was eying something else throughout her time in France. Her desire to do something different led her to enroll in a culinary arts school as well as different fashion programs. She completed both of them but was still not satisfied; she felt that she needed something that would bring out her creative nature.
During her stay in France, a funk and rock band by the name Bad Moon Rising found out that she was blessed with a unique voice. They became interested in her abilities and wanted her for their band. This meant that the beautiful Venezuelan singer would yet again switch careers into the entertainment industry.
Even though Norka Luque gained quite a following while performing with this band, she knew that there had to be more. She eventually went her own way to try a solo career. The decision she made to leave the band was a perfect one as she may not have seen the success she has seen as a solo artist.
Ms. Martinez experienced one of these life-changing occurrences when she decided to relocate to the United States to pursue her music career. She met the Grammy Award winning producer, Emilio Estefan Jr. For those who don’t know Emilio Estefan, let me introduce him to you in a few lines. He is the man who made the careers of artists such as Ricky Martin, Gloria Estefan, Shakira, Jennifer Lopez, Selena Gomez among many others.
Some of the best works from Ms. Martinez include “Como lo haces Tu,” “Milagro” and “Tomorrowland” just to name a few. “Como lo haces Tu,” her first solo was released in 2011 by Emilio Estefan. This single was so successful that it got Ms. Martinez a nomination for the Best Female Latin Pop Artist of the Year at the Premios Lo Nuestro Awards.
“Milagro” was her second single and it was released in 2012. The song was written by Archie Pena and produced by Emilio Estefan. “Milagro” was also very successful; it dominated music charts in major Latino music communities. “Tomorrowland” is her latest single. This track has been received warmly by her fans in Venezuela, Puerto Rico, and the United States. Connect with Ms. Martinez on Facebook to learn more about her upcoming works.
