Leona Lewis - an apology!

A year ago almost to the day, we were discussing Leona Lewis winning the X Factor, and I was rather derogatory, making some "rather crass and pointless" remarks, according to the FE, and saying that her voice would be "shot" within a couple of years.

Yet, here she is with one of the biggest-selling albums of all time...

So, I apologize whole-heartedly; this proves (at least) two things:
1. I haven't a clue what I'm talking about, and
2. errr, see above...

Sorry, never heard of her.

Not living up to the handle then...:-)

It takes character to say that, and to be honest what you said back then might have turned out to be right - then I would be the one to admit I was wrong.

Leona is doing OK, but then she can sing. In fact she's the first-ever British female artist to simultaneously top the U.K. singles and album charts, which isn't bad for a first album. Sustaining that kind of success isn't going to be easy, so let's see what happens.

I remember that thread well!

and Leona is doing pretty well for her self and I hope her success continues but as FE has already stated it is not going to be easy for her sustaining her success especially in todays music industry

good luck to her anyhow.

Leona Lewis has a fantastic singing voice with a fantastic vocal range.That said,success will only be ongoing according to the quality of the songs and song writers that work for her.
No one with a great voice will sell loads of records if the songs are rubbish,but if you have a bad voice and a great song it can still do well.
I hope the future songs are up to scratch.

She'll get plenty of songs sent to her, of that you can be sure. It's then up to her and her record company to pick the right ones.

Leona Lewis sounds just like whitney houston,I just hope she doesnt fall from grace like whitney.

I haven't changed my opinion of her voice (as it was then, I haven't heard her since), and Chegs ®™ has just confirmed it ;)
