Jesse McCartney, Ryan Tedder bag Song Of The Year gongApril 23rd, 2009 - 5:11 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, April 23 (ANI): Jesse McCartney and Ryan Tedder have bagged Song of The Year prize at the American Society of Composers, Authors & Performers (ASCAP) Pop Music Awards.
The duo received that gong for penning Leona Lewis’ smash-hit ‘Bleeding Love’.
The song was picked by music moguls Simon Cowell and Clive Davis as Lewis’ breakout hit after she won British talent show X Factor - and she took it to the top of the charts all over the globe.
“Being recognised by ASCAP is a great honour as a songwriter, and I am very grateful for this award,” Contactmusic quoted McCartney as saying.
“The success of this song would not have been possible without Leona’s stunning vocals and amazing approach,” McCartney added. (ANI)
