Hello guys! It is now official Leona is one of the artist on the headline of the phenomenal BBC Radio1 Hackney Weekend Concert, in London. She will perform on June Saturday 23th! An honour for Leona Lewis who comes from this very special place of London’s city.
Worldwide megastar Leona Lewis is poised to put in the performance of her life at this homecoming set, signifying a return to the stage for the Hackney resident, presently perfecting her third album.
A far cry from the shy and sweet contestant who stole the heart of the nation before being crowned X Factor winner in 2006, Leona underwent an epic transformation, becoming an international celeb whilst securing her place as a national treasure. Radio 1 have played no small part in her journey; in 2007 her Live Lounge cover of Snow Patrol’s Run was so well received that it was later released as a single, securing Leona her third UK Number 1 single.
The multi-platinum selling, Grammy-nominee continues to show her appreciation by ensuring Radio 1 listeners are ahead of the pack, with her most recent single Collide receiving its’ first UK radio play on Scott Mills’ show back in July.
