Just like other industries, the Music industry is divided into different segments. There’s a segment that focuses on pop and alternative music, on country music, on jazz and soul music, and a segment that focuses on Latino music. The Latino music segment is filled with Latino music artists as well as non-Latino artists. Just like the other segments, an award show is held to pick the best songs and performances every year. The Country Music Awards show usually comes before or right around the same time as the Latin Music Awards. In 2016, those two award shows are just a couple of weeks apart. Music award shows are important because they highlight the performances of seasoned veterans like Enrique Iglesias, Shakira, and others. But award shows also give newcomers a chance to perform in front of a live audience and in front of millions of people at home. The chance to perform on an award show is the dream of every artist in the business.
Venezuelan artist, Norka Luque got her chance to perform at the Latin Music Awards in 2011. She was nominated for the best female of the year award that year. Since then, Norka has released two more singles, and both of those songs have stayed at the top of Latino Billboard Charts. The name NorkaLuque is not a household name in American music, but Norka’s music is being played by radio stations in Florida and in other cities where there is a large Latino population. The radio stations that are playing her music are not just Latino stations. The mainstream radio stations are playing her hits, “Milagro” and “Tomorrowland.”
Getting airtime on a radio station is not easy. Only the best of the best artists get airtime on the radio and only the best artists make music videos that reach millions of people, and then make it to the Music Video Awards show every year. Norka is one of those artists thanks to her collaboration with Grammy Award-winning producer Emilio Estefan.
Norka took some time off after her first Latino hit. She had some health issues, and she needed time to heal. But Norka is back, and her voice is stronger than ever. Estefan and Archie Pena still work with Norka, and both men believe she is one of the top performers in the Latin music world. Estefan believes that it’s only a matter of time before her music is part of the mainstream music scene.
