The 2006 X Factor Winner, Leona Lewis, Signs Five-Album Deal with J Records



Leona Lewis, winner of the 2006 X Factor contest, has secured a 5 million record deal with Clive Davis' J Records.

Leona Lewis, the winner of the 2006 X Factor contest, has secured a record deal with music mogul Clive Davis. The deal, reportedly worth for 5m ($9.7m), will make it possible for Lewis to release five albums worldwide on the label J Records.

Davis, 74, is the man who discovered singer Whitney Houston and also is the mentor for famous singers Alicia Keys and Justin Timberlake. Working with the music expert with Simon Cowell in hand to guide her career, there's no need to doubt Lewis will be an international star.

"I am just overwhelmed. I can't believe everything has happened so fast, from winning the X Factor to coming to LA," Lewis commented. She is due to start recording material in America in May later this year. We'll see what the future brings for her.
