In the center of light, Leona Lewis reportedly is in the middle of a bidding war for her single 'Bleeding Love' to be used in movies.
Successfully crossing her music to American market, Leona Lewis is now the center of a biding war for the use of her music. Movie bosses in Hollywood reportedly are eying to gain the right to her single hit "Bleeding Love" as well as two others from her album "Spirit" to be used as movie themes.
"A number of huge offers are on the table for Leona's songs," an industry insider said. "The bids for 'Bleeding Love' are staggering. They are into seven figures. The offers are for major blockbusters - some just around the corner." The source also said that Lewis is considered to be the new Whitney Houston if the deal is through. "This could turn 'Bleeding Love' into the biggest song of the decade - like 'I Will Always Love You'. Last week, Leona became the first British solo female to top the US Billboard Hot 100 chart in 21 years with 'Bleeding Love'," the source added.
Lewis is the winner of X Factor, a British talent show that was developed by American Idol's judge Simon Cowell. When "Bleeding Love" peaked at #1 on Billboard Hot 100 chart, she admitted that she still couldn't believe it. "I can't really grasp it. It's amazing," Lewis said on Good Morning America. "I'm just so thankful for this opportunity to come here and to be able to sing in different places all around the world. The reception's been amazing, people have been really great."
