My friend Claudia read the book I wrote on the British pop star Leona Lewis (Mitchell Lane Publishing). The chapter book tells about this young woman who has knocked the socks off of people around the world with her singing. In England Leona won first place on a talent show that is like “American Idol.” Many Americans recognize Leona’s voice when they hear her most popular song, “Bleeding Love.” Leona Lewis worked hard to achieve her dream of being a singer. She worked at Pizza Hut to pay for singing lessons. Claudia did a nice job with her book report. You can hear it on Youtube at “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=flqRHvxAPV8&feature=related” and “http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wY0m66wTe4Y&NR=1”. (Claudia added so many good details we had to make 2 vids!) Thanks, Claudia! You did a great job!
Look for a copy of this Blue Banner biography about Leona Lewis at your local library. If you don’t find a copy, ask your librarian to order one. After you read it, I’d love to hear from you about it. Do you like learning about people from England? Do you like Leona’s music? If you don’t, that’s OK. Personally, I like her song “Better in Time” better than “Bleeding Love.”
Let me hear from you at kjreusser @ adamswells.com (take out the spaces).
Enjoy Leona’s music and have a great day! You’re special!
