Leona is in the US right now! After her incredible performances at the Cirque du soleil show, she enjoyed a night with friends and management team at Pitbull Vegas show! Leona Lewis hits the stage to perform “Feel This Moment” during Pitbull‘s Time of Our Lives concert on Saturday (March 19) at The Axis at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas. Have a look at the pictures and videos below!
What a great treat to wake up to (at least on this part of the planet!). Leona recorded a beautiful session of 3 songs for keepitpumping.com, which is the site for a campaing to donate and supportpeople who suffer from heart failure conditions. She was so beautiful and moved the audience with acoustic renditions of her songs ‘Fire Under My Feet’, ‘Bleeding Love’ and an INCREDIBLE SURPRISE, she sang ‘Heartbeat’ for the first time (maybe because one of the campaing activities is called donate a heartbeat <3) and it was MAGNIFICENT, seriously I hope she sings that on her upcoming tour! It was so magical! With nothing else to say enjoy this on the player bellow:
Yes! As you read it on the title people! The one and only Taylor Swift invited Leona to perform on stage of her 1989 World Tour, especifically in the city of Nashville where they blew everyone’s mind with an amazing rendition of Leona’s 2008 hit “Bleeding Love”. Taylor and Leona tweeted eachother (tweet 1, tweet 2. tweet 3) after the show to express the grateful moment they had together at the concert. There are still no FULL videos of the performance but bellow you can find some short clips from people who attended the show last night (26/09/15) and also 4 HQ outtakes of Leona and Taylor performing!

Busy weekend for Leona! Earlier today she performed at the well known UK music festival Hyde Park and she was incredible! With a set of 6 songs Leona literally shined! She began the show with an amazing semi-acoustic rendition of ‘I Am’ (this one was SO good), followed by her hit ‘Better in Time’. Leona then heat things up with a fun but great arrange of ‘Fire Under My Feet’ which was followed by her all time hit ‘Bleeding Love’ in which she sounded gorgeous. The highlight of the evening was when she presented and sang her new track ‘I Got You’ which sounds so so good live that you won’t believe it!. She closed her set with the always loved ‘Run’ and it also was magical and good as always! As we are used to do we have High Quality shots from the show and also the full set in video thanks to Leona Lewis Portugal

A few months ago, Leona Lewis was the special guest of the Baloise Session! She’s made a set of songs including her best hits like “Bleeding love”, “Happy” or “Forgive me”! She also covered “Diamonds” from Rihanna! But she totally rocked the stage with the great performances of “Glassheart” & “Forgive me” now online in HD! Have a look below! ( Thanks to Lele Vietnam on youtube for uploading )
When Leona Lewis announced that she had left Simon Cowell’s Syco record label back in 2014 it came as a welcome surprise. The fans had been calling for her to leave the X Factor label for sometime after the messy release of third album Glassheart, which saw her sell a tiny fraction of what she is clearly capable of.
But not many – this writer included – thought she would ever jump ship. Leona was the original X Factor superstar. Before ‘Bleeding Love’, winners were seen as second-rate popstars with a two-album shelf life at best. ‘The Voice of an Angel’ crushed that perception, and helped Cowell sell the X Factor brand across the world, as well as opening the pathway for later international breakouts such as One Direction, Little Mix and Olly Murs.
So you’d be forgiven for thinking Syco would a) make sure Leona had the freedom, confidence and resources to continue to make the best possible albums, and b) make sure their prime diva was content with the direction of her career so she doesn’t become desperate to leave. Obviously, judging by Leona’s subsequent departure to Island Records, it got to a stage where neither of these things were happening. And while this was all brewing behind the scenes, Leona’s meek and mild demeanour meant she kept a high level of class and didn’t shout off to the press or vent frustration on social media.
However, with that in mind, album number five is very much a case of let the music do the talking. There’s no escaping the break-up lyrics that lead the new tracks. This isn’t the breakdown of a personal relationship, though, but rather a professional one. Leona opened her showcase in London last night (April 14) with new track ‘I Am’; an empowering mid-tempo ballad that has a razor sharp defiance. It has jolts of breakbeats on the chorus, and isn’t wildly different sonically from what we’ve heard from her before, but the biggest change comes in the tone of the narrative, proving that behind that sweet Hackney smile there is plenty of bite with plenty to say.
The toughest challenge Leona has always faced is mastering an uptempo number that she can feel comfortable with. It’s one she has finally cracked with ‘I Got You’; a bouncy groove with a funk-driven undercurrent. It’s positive, it’s infectious, and it has a real chance of becoming a hit. But most importantly it’s a pacier track that agrees with Leona’s natural style and rhythm, rather than cornering her into a full-blown techno blowout that feels forced.
What’s more, following track ‘Ladders’ also flits between mid-tempo and uptempo territory, building into a gospel-like crescendo towards the end. Leona explained that the song deals with appreciating the lows as much as the highs, hinting that she needed to experience the bad times at her former label to get to where she is now. We suspect it won’t prove easy listening for Mr Cowell.
Leona Lewis plays showcase at the Hospital Club in London.
Essentially, it wouldn’t be a Leona album without a soaring ballad, and ‘Thank You’ was dedicated to her parents who have helped her through some teary nights in recent years. It’s a classic slow number that allows Leona’s insane vocal range full space to reach its peak, reminding us of those intricate ad-libs and powerhouse belting notes that made ‘Bleeding Love’ a worldwide smash. As one person rightly whispered in the crowd: “They don’t make X Factor winners like this anymore.”
It ended on new single ‘Fire’; a jaunty, soulful number, with a foot-stomping beat and Leona on the piano. It’s hard to ignore the whiff of Adele’s ‘Rolling In The Deep’, but it almost ramps it up even higher with an electrifying guitar solo in the middle and Leona belting “fire” over sassy claps. It’s an extremely solid lead for the album and easily has the potential to put Leona back at the top of the chart.
This is clearly going to be Leona’s statement album. From what we’ve heard so far it’s full of passion, heartache and struggle, but it’s lined with hope and a general sense that this is the happiest she has ever been with what she is performing. Every man and his dog knows that Leona has an incredibly strong vocal, but now she finally has an equally strong voice to go with it.
As you may know Leona Lewis peformed a few months ago (November 2014) at the Baloise Session festival in Switzerland and we were thinking professional footage of the concert were never be uploaded to the concert’s official site; Well we got a surprise today! 3 HD videos were uploaded! Unfortunately they uploaded only cover versions of “Hotel California” (Eagles), “Happy” (Pharrel), “Diamonds” (Rihanna). We grabbed the videos from the site in excelent HD so we hope you enjoy them! Leona sounded great, especially in “Hotel California”.
Leona was invited to perform at the opening of the Kieu Hoang Winery Grand Opening in Napa Valley, California, USA last night (01/11/2014) and it was pretty good. She offered an exclusive gig for the event guests with an impresive acoustic sound and new arragement for some songs, that I personally ENJOYED a lot! (Hope she brings this band with her more often). She performed some of her songs and her usual range of covers. Bellow is the complete setlist and a video with the whole concert, thanks to Gregory from leonalewislive.com
