[Watch] Leona Lewis's Accoustic Set For British Airways



Leona Lewis is getting herself back out there to promote the fact that she hasn't retired, and is still making music- seriously, there are people who think she's quit the industry! Her latest outing was for British Airways, who were celebrating "...the launch of British Airways A380 to Hong Kong last week".

Now, if I didn't have a friend who was a plane nut, I wouldn't have thought this was anything to get excited about. But there are genuinely people out there rejoicing at this news- different strokes for different folks, I suppose. At least we can benefit from the event by getting to watch the lovely Leona perform two songs in an acoustic fashion.

It was odd that she chose not to perform any Christmas songs- despite having an album of that nature to plug-  however, I suspect it may have been to do with BA wanting to keep the event secular. The songs she did pick were biggest hit Bleeding Love and last album's Come Alive. They weren't the greatest of renditions, in fact they were probably some of her worst- with too much substituting of head for chest notes, and tuning problems throughout- but at least the arrangements were nice.

I suspect this was just a bad vocal day for the X-Factor winner, so no need to panic just yet. We'll know more when she gets to promoting Christmas, With Love- of which you can hear its lead single here.





Thoughts?

  2. Kelly has these 2 beat by miles. Leona's a worthy adversary but not Marry. I do like Marry's music but I never thought she was a singer singer. Leona and Kelly, those are singers, the latter being a SANGER lol


    Vocally, Kelly has them beat by miles.

  4. I am not impressed with Kelly's Underneath The Tree. But I AM impressed with her renditions of the classics on Wrapped In Red.

  5. I've never heard the expression "make my shit move" as a way to describe someone positively haha. And I've recently noticed people commenting on his eyebrows, but I've never noticed it until I first heard someone mention it. haha

  7. They are actually the cutest people ever too. Scott and Mitch have a vlog channel where they are absolutely hilarious. http://www.youtube.com/user/sup3rfruit They also did a completely outrageous, yet on point, cover of Defying Gravity from Wicked too.

  30. okey the fact that Lissie hasn't got a profile or at least an album review for any of her albums is embarrassing! She's one the best singers, songwriters of this generation! She get's critical acclaim everywhere!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I have never heard of a Lissie, maybe others haven't either. You should add a link or two if you are trying to get attention for an artist. I think it will greatly improve the chances of your promotion succeeding. :-)

  32. Like for instance ...

  33. yeah I should have done that :P Thanks :)
    she's is just very popular and her albums are getting very good review, some says she's the voice of our generation so I thought maybe some knew who she was on this site. I talked to diva herself and she said she was a huge fan of her, and I have been waiting for over 1.5 years for that profil now :/

  34. OK, am I the only one who was AMAZED by Adam Lambert's performance of "Marry the night" in Glee? Fuck, it was electrifying, those belts are not of this world. I'm gonna go check some of his material o_O http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yDCAar9yArE

    PD: I also really liked this acoustic performance of "Wide awake" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_WyZtjDlFA Jacob and Jenna's voices are so soft and melodic in here....

    I dislike the weakness in his middle voice and that his belts are rather raspy, but his delivery is good.
