Fantasia: Losing to win

Fantasia: Losing to win

It took a minute to grow on me, but Fantasia's new song "Lose to Win" is actually one of my favorite songs out right now. As always with every great song, you can almost look behind the music and find a portal into the singer's heart and soul.

Dionne Warwick, down to $1,000 cash, files for bankruptcy

LOS ANGELES – Dionne Warwick, one of the most recognizable pop voices of the 1960s, filed for bankruptcy last week, citing more than $10 million in tax debt dating back to 1991.

"Due to several consecutive years (the late '80s through the mid-'90s) of negligent and gross financial mismanagement, Dionne Warwick has realized the current necessity to file personal bankruptcy," Warwick publicist Kevin Sasaki said in a statement to CNN Tuesday.

Warwick, 72, made hits out of many Burt Bacharach and Hal David songs, and won five Grammys in a 50-year career. The singer is down to her last $1,000 in cash and only owns furniture and clothing worth $1,500, according to the Chapter 7 filing in New Jersey.
