Millions of people all over the world are faced with difficult situations every day. How we handle such difficulties determines how fulfilling our lives will be. Sometimes, all we need is someone to offer us inspiration. Venezuelan songbird Norka Martinez Luque, has been using her global stardom to encourage her fans to put on a brave face regardless of the situations facing them. Most of her songs have inspirational lyrics, something that has helped her become a global superstar.
Norka uses her own story to encourage her fans. Her path to musical success was long and winding. At some point, she contemplated giving up altogether so that she could focus her energies elsewhere. However, she decided to hold onto her dream. Her resilience and tenacity has gone a long way in helping her chart a successful career in the music industry. Very few people actually believe that she rose from relative obscurity into global stardom within a short time.
Why Norka’s Career is Inspirational
When Norka made it known to her parents that she wanted to pursue a career in the performing arts, they fully supported her decision. After completing high school, she joined a French University to pursue a degree in catering, fashion and business management.
Living, studying, and working in France gave her the opportunity to kick start her professional music career. The industry back home was not fully developed and thus, couldn’t provide a suitable launching pad. In France, Norka was fortunate to join a travelling band that held weekly shows in clubs and other social events. She distinguished herself as the standout member of the band, something that won her many fans. However, getting spotted by veteran producer Emilio Estefan Jr. turned around her career.
Emilio’s experience and in-depth understanding of the music industry has been of great benefit to Norka. She has been molded into a global phenomenon that she always dreamt to be from a young age. She has particularly cut a niche for herself by being among the few artistes whose music bears a message of hope and positivity. Under Emilio’s guidance, she has equally managed to overcome challenges that threatened to derail her career. In the four years that she has been in the limelight, Norka has shared the stage with some of the most prominent music icons.
