Time indeed flies.
Leona Lewis may feel like a relative newcomer to some, but it’s actually been 10 years since the soaring songbird won the third season of The X Factor UK.
The time since has brought blazing success with releases such as ‘Bleeding Love’ and 2007’s ‘Spirit’ album. There have also been challenging windows, including a departure from Simon Cowell and a comeback campaign that didn’t quite connect.
Still, as the narratives of the most seasoned careers highlight, every journey is filled with peaks and troughs.
Lewis celebrates all in touching new performance of ‘Somewhere Over The Rainbow.’
Dedicated to her legions of loyal fans, the song’s selection gives a nod to her X Factor audition song.
Watch her in action below…
Leona’s voice has changed, with the years shaving off a little of the power she once projected so effortlessly. That said, change need not always be a “bad thing.”
She remains, as this performance highlights, a phenomenal talent; one with a gorgeous vocal tone.
It’ll be awesome to see her craft material in this vein and continue to showcase the multi-dimensional nature of her gift.
Here’s to many more decades!
