It has been announced that R&B songstress LeToya is to be honored by the ASCAP (American Society of Composers, Authors & Publishers) during its 20th Anniversary Rhythm and Soul Music Awards on June 26th. LeToya’s hit ‘Torn’ is also set to be honored at the event as one of ASCAP’s top songs of 2006. Her career is going from strength to strength.
In other LeToya news, angry fans have started a petition to BET querying why the ‘She Don’t’ singer was completely left off the nominee list for the 2007 BET Awards. It makes alot of sense, considering LeToya was a major feature on BET last year. ‘Torn’ was #1 on the 106 & Park video countdown for a number of weeks and had to be retired from the chart. Not forgetting the ‘H-Town Chick’ reality show on the network which documented LeToya’s daily activities in the run-up to the release of her debut album. All of this and not even one nomination.
