Latasha Lee & The BlackTies - Exclusive Interview For Hub Pages.
Introducing Latasha Lee & The BlackTies.
Sunday 17th March 2013.
This is certainly a date I will never forget. My debut article / e-mail interview with X Factor USA contestant and all round brilliant singer / performer Latasha Lee.
Latasha Lee came to my attention when her Producer / Manager Salih Williams set up a site on Hub Pages to promote her music. I saw it and followed immediately because of her obvious raw talent. She is going to be a massive R&B star of the future and I cannot believe that Simon Cowell let her go.

Latasha Lee, USA equivalent of Amy Winehouse.
Does Latasha Lee remind you of Amy Winehouse ?
Tell me what you think.
If you have read this far then take the poll and answer the questions.
