Leona Lewis has rocked the charts in the U.K. and is now bursting onto the U.S. scene. Her hit single, "Bleeding Love," is the most-played song around the world. Her new album, "Spirit," will be in U.S. stores on April 8.
Critics have hailed the British singer-songwriter as the best voice since Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey. Lewis has also been endorsed by industry icons Simon Cowell and Clive Davis.
