The statement further stated, “We are deeply saddened for the loss of our beloved sister, daughter and granddaughter, Leslie Carter. We request the utmost privacy during this difficult time.”
Some of the noteworthy songs of the singer include ‘Like Wow’ which was so much appreciated that it was included in the ‘Shrek’ soundtrack in the year 2001. However, the recording career of the singer could not take off. Carter got married to Mike in the year 2008 and later moved to Toronto. On April 1, 2011 the singer also gave birth to a baby girl. In the year 1999, the singer signed a deal with Dreamworks Records and started recording her debut album. The album was supposed to be released in June 2000, but the record label said that they wanted to test the fan base of the singer before releasing so as to ensure its success.
This was when her single ‘Like Wow’ was included in ‘Shrek’ but unfortunately it received minor radio airplay and also a low position on the Hot 100. However, despite the feeble success, the singer was well appreciated and her track reached to 99 in the US and gradually sold high amount of copies. With the little success the record label then decided to release the album in April 2001, but even that was canceled thinking that she would not be able to compete with the singers like Madonna, Britney Spears and Christina Anguilera.
