The concert started off at 19:00 hours (German Time), with the performance of local artist, Alexander Klaws as the support act. About half an hour later, Leona’s concert began! She opened the show at the beat of ‘Come Alive’ while she looked hot, wearing a black fitted jacket with a white collar and a pair of baggy pants; the show continued with the emotional ‘Fireflies’, the new incredible version of her single ‘A Moment Like This’, followed by a new mix of ‘Collide’, the high beated ‘Forgive Me’ and her epic mashup of ‘Better in Time/Man Down’. The show continued with an acoustic version of ‘Happy’, the powerhouse ‘Sugar’ , ‘I To You’, one of the most unexpected songs of the night ‘Broken’, and a surprising version of ‘Trouble’ played in the piano by herself. It was time for an outfit change, Leona showed up again wearing one of her known dresses with cut outs, as she prepared herself to sing a cover version of ‘Bruno Mars’ ‘Locked Out Of Heaven’, followed by ‘Footprinds in the Sand’, ‘The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face’ which she dedicated to her grandmom; her classic ‘Bleeding Love’ preceded by the dance version of ‘Glassheart’. Finally, to close the night Leona performed her huge hit around the world (specially in Germany), ‘Run’, which I considered an amazing treat to the public there who’s always supported the song.! Without a doubt a show full of great visuals, great music, full of emotions and the more important impecable vocals and flawless interpretation!.

February 28th, London. Ethical beauty retailer The Body Shop is proud to reveal today that British singer and global superstar Leona Lewis has become its new Brand Activist.
Seven years since her triumph on The X Factor (UK), Leona has twenty million album sales and a glittering collection of awards and award nominations, yet remains grounded and true to her beliefs. An animal lover and long-time vegetarian, Leona is the perfect partner for The Body Shop and its unique vision of cruelty-free beauty.
As part of the partnership, one of Leona’s first activities is to help The Body Shop and NGO Cruelty Free International in their joint, global campaign to end animal testing for cosmetics forever, building on the EU ban on animal testing for cosmetics which comes into effect on March 11th this year.
Leona has also put her name to an exclusive cruelty-free make-up and fragrance collection, the Limited Edition Collection by Leona Lewis. Featuring 100% vegetarian cosmetics in fashion-forward shades, the Limited Edition Collection by Leona Lewis features quirky packaging with a floral deer motif, celebrating the fact that The Body Shop was one of the first beauty brands to use cruelty-free, man-made musk instead of musk derived from the musk deer. The Limited Edition Collection by Leona Lewis is available at selected stores from March 26th 2013.
To celebrate the partnership, Leona will also be holding an exclusive gig for fans which will be live streamed on March 26th 2013. For more information on the gig, follow The Body Shop on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/thebodyshopuk
Leona Lewis says: “I’m passionate about beauty and I’m all about animal rights. As a result, I’m really conscious of where the products that I use come from. The Body Shop sells cruelty free, ethical products containing amazing Community Fair Trade ingredients. The collaboration is a natural fit!”
