Filed under: 2006 Contestants, Leona

leonalewis.jpgAfter performing at an industry showcase on Wednesday 7 February at the Beverley Hilton Hotel in Los Angeles, X Factor winner Leona Lewis was then signed by Clive Davies (who discovered Whitney Houston) securing a massive 5 million pound, 5 album U.S record deal.

Leona said “I am just overwhelmed. I can’t believe everything has happened so fast, from winning the X Factor to coming to LA.”

Her manager Simon Cowell stated: “We’ll do everything in our power to make her an international star. I’ve always said that she is the next Whitney Houston and I believe it.”

  7. sorry. but i thought leona was a one horse pony. ben mills so deserved to win the xfactor last year, he was ace and could put his voice 2 any genre.

    all u ppl who think leona rocks, u obviously dont know the music business or have an ear 4 talent where as i do. i cant sing myself which is why i can hear a great singer from a mile off.

  10. Leona,
    You have a pure wonderful voice – but please throw in some of the classics in your albums, those are the ones that the people voted for on x factor not the pop stuff, your ballads are far far superior! Summertime….!
