Working is good, but working and supporting a good cause at the same time is even better. Leona Lewis as an amazing artist and human being experienced that feeling, as she attended the 2014 Be Beautiful Be Yourself DC Gala that the Global Down Syndrome Foundation celebrated yesterday, at the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel in Washington, DC – USA. Leona performed a set of songs and looked so happy while dancing and sharing with some of the special kids that suffer from this disorder. As always (and being this our specialty) we’ve brought you a lot of photos of the event and the red carpet *Exclusively*, and in amazing quality. Just click on the thumbnails bellow to see them all!.

Leona Lewis has become the first British female solo artist to score eight UK Top 5 singles.
Her latest track, One More Sleep, may have narrowly missed landing at number one on Sunday but it’s entry into the Top 5 had nonetheless made the former X Factor contestant a record breaker. Which means Leona has more than enough reason to celebrate this Christmas, now that she officially has more Top 5 hits than any other British female solo act in history.
“The support from my fans has been tremendous,” Leona told OfficialCharts.com. “”I could not do this without them!”
The songstress first made an impact on the charts with her debut single A Moment Like This. Her follow-up, Bleeding Love, sold over a million copies, making it one of the UK’s biggest singles of all time. One More Sleep is taken from Leona’s latest album, Christmas With Love, which features classic Crimbo covers together with new material.

Tonight sees another heart-breaking elimination.
Following last night’s breath-taking performances, the finalists who have scored the lowest in the public vote must face each other in the sing-off.
Fighting for survival they must sing to try and secure themselves a place in The X Factor Live Final.
Throughout the Live Shows an outstanding line-up of guest stars will perform. This week there will be exclusive performances from multi-platinum selling soloist and The X
Factor alumni Leona Lewis as well as Canadian king of swing Michael Bublé.
It feels like it was yesterday when Leona released her sophomore album, the iconic “Echo”. Today we celebrate 4 years since its release back in 2009.
“Echo” was an album full of amazingly produced tracks in which Leona evolved, going from an R&B/Pop album to a more Pop oriented collection of songs with more strings and heavy sounds, but always keeping that unique (in my opinion) essence of hers. Leona worked with increible producers and songwritters like Ryan Tedder, Max Martin, Julian Bunetta, Jhon Shanks, Novel, Justin Timberlake, among others that captured an amazing atmosphere that you can easily feel when you listen to the whole album, its like her most dramatic (soundwise) album shes ever done and I’m sure a favourite from a lot of fans. “Echo” was a success in the UK being Leona’s second #1 album in the official charts and a moderate hit in the US hitting #13 in the Billboard 200 charts. Leona has sold aproximately 2 million copies* worldwide of “Echo”. This album was full of hits in our opinion; songs like “Outta my Head”, “My Hands”, “Broken”. “Can’t Breathe” were all single worthy tracks that never saw the light of day; now that its been 4 years since its release we are proud to say that even with having only two singles out, “Echo” was an iconic album and a masterpiece that will always be remembered and listened to!. As per usual we made a playlist with the most notable performances of the “Echo” era, including some of the ones she did during “The Labyrinth Tour”. Enjoy
If you want more information about “Echo” make sure you visit our Discography page in wich you’ll get more details about this amazing album.
Leona Lewis will perform at London’s Regent Street Christmas lights switch-on.

We’re always expecting new music from Leona, and for our surprise we got a new track this morning!. BBC Radio 2 Ken Bruce’s show, played a new cover of the 60′s Motown/R&B hit “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough”, by Michael Bolton featuring Leona Lewis!. We suppose this track will be included on Bolton’s UK version of his latest album entitled the same as the song, since he already released that discographic material in the US and Australia (earlier this year), and this same cover is sang by Kelly Rowland and Delta Goodrem respectively. Leona’s vocals are AMAZING on the track!! If this is the way she will sound on her new christmas album, we know for sure it’ll be a HIT! Listen to it on the player bellow:
“Ain’t No Montain High Enough” – Michael Bolton feat. Leona Lewis
Thanks to Leona Lewis Brasil for this great news and the audio file!
Hello everyone! An amazing news has surfaced the internet this weekend! For several days we’ve seen that Leona’s been posting on her instagram and twitter, photos of a mysterious dance rehearsal she’s been working on in Italy, and we were wondering what was that all about. Well UK’s local newspaper, ‘The Mirror’ has revealed the mistery behind the photos/tweets. They reported yesterday that Leona will be starring on a new Hollywood musical!! They also revealed that Leona has big plans for her new christmas album to be released this year. Thanks to d56 from DigitalSpy’s LLAT, we have exactly what the newspaper published on its printed version yesterday (08/09/13):
Jazz hands at the ready – Leona Lewis is starring in a new Hollywood musical.
Get ready for the Bleeding Love singer, 28, to break into random song with random people and have bunny rabbits follow her down the street. I’m told: “The musical has an Eighties theme.
“It will be an all-singing and all-dancing spectacle and is currently being filmed in Italy.
‘Leona will spend the next two months over there”
The film’s producers are “excited” to have Leona on board in her first acting role. She has had lots of offers for musical roles but held out until this part “leapt out at her”.
After filming she will be back in the UK to promote a new album, which will be out at Christmas. I’m told, “There are big plans for a comeback single”.
