A Little Background. : was born in Caracas on February 7, 1986. From her youth her parents have encouraged her with training in voice, piano, dance, and academics. Upon graduation from high school, she studied Business Administration in France, graduating with diplomas in Culinary Arts, Fashion, and Marketing. While a student, she cultivated her interest in music by joining a band and touring cities and familiarizing herself with those involved in the European music community. That vocal music involvement was transformative because it culminated in work with Emilio Estefan Jr., well-known and respected music producer, in 2008.
Background Story. Young people do put on weight and suddenly discover the mirror and the fact that they are no longer the person they used to be. Norka was one such young lady. She was motivated to deal with her weight, ultimately shedding 70 pounds. In the process, Norka found a new beginning and a life of hope.
A Song Venture. Estefan with such people as Hermanos Gaitán, Archie Pena, and Luigi Giraldo helped guide Norka in creation of Milagro, a song with Caribbean and Mediterranean flavors, and espousing a positive message that change was possible. It was received warmly in 2012 in the U.S., Puerto Rico, and her birth country, Venezuela, and was a favorite on such music charts as Latin Music Billboards.
Her Own Words. Latino Show Magazine (October 5, 2012) caught the focus of this young artist in a quote that describes her music emphasis: “We as artists have the great responsibility of bringing a positive message to our fans because the lyrics in our songs transport them to the deepest levels of their emotions. … New rhythms and genres are born, but the essence of the message that we want to transmit to people should never change. With the song Milagro, I want to send a message of hope to those who are overwhelmed by a personal crisis, like the one that I went through, and who hope for a miracle to change their lives. I am the result of several situations which have allowed me to value life even more ….”
Still Singing. Norka continues her music career in 2016 with her recent single release entitled “Tomorrowland.” Emilio Estefan Jr. remains an encourager for this young lady as she continues to develop her music career.
