Breast cancer claims Latin Grammy winner

Latin singer Soraya has died of breast cancer at the age of 37.

The singer, who born in Colombia, won a Latin Grammy for her self-titled sebut album in 2003.

β€œI have not lost this battle, because I know the fight was not in vain,” she said on her official website earlier this week.

β€œIt will help end a larger battle, which is early detection to prevent this terrible disease.”

She lost her mother and grandmother to the illness and she worked as a spokeswoman for the Susan G Komen Breast Cancer Foundation.
