Born in Tijuana, Mexico, singer/songwriter Leticia Ascencio's passion has always been music and the message it possesses.
Her first professional break came in 1994, headlining the Mercury Records soundtrack for the urban success "Mi Vida Loca". With the original bad boys of Chicano rap, "Lighter Shade Of Brown", her two singles featured on the soundtrack were a cover of the Honey Cones, "Girls, It Ain't Easy" (featuring Robert "ODM" Gutierrez) and Malo's gorgeous "Suavecito", produced by Jerry Brown, which is still heard every Sunday on the Art Laboe Show. These songs made her an instant favorite amongst Latinos. That same year, Leticia was featured in the Sony Records soundtrack to the hit movie "I Like It Like That", with John Seda. This time Leticia would be a co-writer on the song "BLACKOUT" produced by Robert "ODM" Gutierrez.
In the summer of 1997, Leticia would introduce her project, VIENNA, to the #1 dance DJ in Los Angeles, Richard Humpty Vission. That same year Scotti Bros. Records was looking for their first single for their newly signed artist "Artie the One Man Party, which was being produced by Vission and Lorimer. She set the clubs on fire with her self-penned Top 10 Billboard dance hit "Mami" which would get played non-stop on L.A.'s #1 Underground Power Tools show, as well as 103.1 Groove Radio.
In 2001 television came knocking on her door, Leticia penned 2 original songs that would be included on TV's first "reality" show for Eden's Crush top 5 album "Popstars", which earned the songstress her first gold record on David Foster's label, 143 Records.
