Latasha Lee & The BlackTies - Exclusive Interview For Hub Pages.

Updated on April 12, 2013

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.

Amy Winehouse maybe in another place now, but I believe Latasha Lee is more than a suitable replacement. In fact I would go so far to say she is better than the late Ms Winehouse.

    Mike thanks for reading and commenting. That show in this country has almost ran it's course. From what I can gather this season will be the last. Personally I am enjoying the second season of The Voice.

    Thanks again and enjoy your week.

    Nice work Steve,

    It is amazing how these so called 'losers' always seem to do better in the long run than the winners of 'that show'.

    You know how I feel about that show.

    Latasha has a great voice.

    I agree she is going to make it to the big time.

    I have to agree Jsm, she does have a strong voice. It makes you wonder how far in X Factor USA she would have gone had she not been affected by nerves. Have a great Sunday and thanks for the great comments, votes and share.
