Leona Lewis- British Biracial singer/songwriter

Leona Lewis~ British Biracial singer/songwriter

The UK's Fastest selling debut album of all time! It just came to the States. Leona, born in London, her parents are Guyanese Afro-Caribbean, and Anglo-Welsh. At age fifteen, she recorded a version of Minnie Riperton's "Lovin' You". Ok, if you don't remember or didn't even know...it was hitting those notes--the Minnie Riperton notes--that put Mariah on tha map. In 2006 Leona was the winner of the UK show --similar to American Idol-- called The X Factor. Simon Cowell is also a judge on that show. Simon mentored Leona and says he just loves this girl and thinks she is completely great. LEONA'S WEBSITE
