Leona Lewis - Spirit 2007
2006 X-Factor winner Leona Lewis's long-awaited debut LP 'Spirit' comes nearly a year after her first single, 'A Moment Like This'. Preceded by 'Bleeding Love', this release sees Lewis collaborating with a wealth of different producers and writers (as well as the ubiquitous Simon Cowell as executive producer) including Damon Dash and Ne-Yo. The sound ranges from slick R&B pop to power ballads, finding room as well for a delicate version of Ewan Macoll's 'The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face'. Lewis herself was heavily involved in the writing process, sharing credits on several of the songs on 'Spirit'.
