The increased popularity of Leona Lewis since her winning on The X Factor has inspired AceShowbiz.com to pick her as its "Artist of the Week" for the 12th week of 2008 (http://www.aceshowbiz.com/music/artist/2008_12.html). The British singer who has successfully coined her name in the United Kingdom through single "Bleeding Love", is now on the verge of breaking the United States chart with the same single. Jumping-up 20 places from #41, "Bleeding Love" currently sits at #21 in its fourth week.
Riding on the success of her album "Spirit", Leona Lewis has in 2008 alone garnered multiple nominations at the awards event, the BRIT Awards. The fantastic achievement inevitably led her being dubbed the "next Whitney Houston".
Lewis recently visited Johannesburg in South Africa with Sport Relief. Her song "Footprints in The Sand" is made the official Sport Relief song of 2008. Furthermore, her dress that was worn at the 2008 BRIT Awards and designed by Roberto Cavalli is also being auctioned for the good cause.
Leona Louise Lewis is a British singer-songwriter who won British television talent show "The X Factor" in December 2006. Her debut single, "A Moment Like This" broke a world record after it was downloaded more than 50,000 times within 30 minutes shortly after its on-line release. Consequently, her second single "Bleeding Love" was named the biggest selling single of 2007 in U.K.. Similarly, the album "Spirit" that was released on November 9, 2007 became the fastest selling debut album in both U.K. and Republic of Ireland.
