Norka Luque entered the world in the wintertime. She was born in 1986 in Caracas, which is Venezuela’s bustling capital city. The Latin American music talent has enjoyed a productive and successful career during her time on the planet so far. Emilio Estefan has served as an invaluable asset to Norka Luque. The widely known producer has helped take Luque’s career to great heights. Although Luque was born in South America, she currently resides in vibrant Miami, Florida in the United States. Luque makes pop, urban, Latin and dance music.
Luque left the United States right after she completed her high school education. That’s when she made the choice to move across the pond to Europe. She chose France to be her place of residence. She studied the French language in great detail while overseas. She also attended business school while there. She remained in school for four full years. Her time in France wasn’t only about education, however. She also focused heavily on her musical aspirations. Luque joined a band that made alternative rock tunes while in France. This band was known by the name of “Bad Moon Rising.”
Luque worked as a banker in tiny Monaco for a period of time. That’s when she realized what she really wanted to do with her life. That was to go after a career in the music industry. She quickly relocated back to the United States to get to work. Luque worked with Jose Velazquez on her debut album after she returned to the United States. Velazquez is a prominent producer. She came across Emilio Estefan soon after that. The pair rapidly become a team. They collaborated to make Luque’s album that lead to three hit singles. The album even brought on several Latin Music Award nominations.
Luque experienced some health concerns in 2014. These were related to a medical condition that’s referred to as epilepsy. Epilepsy is characterized by problems with brain nerve cell functioning. Epilepsy has been a problem for Luque for close to a decade now. She received brain surgery in the beginning of 2015. Fortunately, things are looking up for her. Her recovery process, however, was quite difficult, especially at first.
Despite all of the obstacles, Luque is on the music scene again. She’s more determined than ever to take the music world by storm, too. She has a brand new song that was produced by Panamanian-Canadian talent Fito Blanko.
