Norman was born into a family of musicians, though none of them were professionals. Her musical prowess exhibited itself at an early age when she began to learn the piano and gave her first ever public performance at the tender age of six. She finished her schooling in her home town of Augusta and went on to receive her Bachelor's degree in music in 1967 and then receiving her Master's the following year. Her dizzying climb to fame and success followed soon after. She won the ARD International Music Competition in Munich and made her operatic debut the following year. For the next few years, Norman would be busy with a number of opera houses in Germany and in Italy. Her home country would have to wait till 1973 when she would make her American debut at the Lincoln Center.
