Leona Lewis gets PS1M for a gig at tycoons daughters birthdayMarch 19th, 2009 - 1:25 pm ICT by ANI
London, Mar 19 (ANI): British pop singer Leona Lewis gave a dazzling performance at tycoon John Caudwells daughters birthday party, for which she was paid a whopping 1 million pounds.
Leona enthralled 200 people at the birthday party with 7 hit songs, and a rendition of Happy Birthday for the birthday girl Libby Caudwell.
Leona also called the Phones4U founders daughter Libby onstage to sing her hit Bleeding Love with her.
Although X Factor winner Leona is not suppose to stage any gigs according to her contract with Simon Cowell, she made an exception for the birthday party after the latter gave his nod.
Leona was not supposed to do any live shows until next year, but she made an exception. Its a hell of a lot of money and was a great party, so it was fun being involved, the Sun quoted a source as saying.
The tabloid said that Libby was left dumbfounded when she saw Leona performing for her.
It was a night Libby will certainly never forget. It was like a dream. She has not stopped talking about it ever since, a guest said.
Libby knew something was going to happen, but she just couldnt believe it when Leona walked on the stage. Like most girls of her age, Libby is a massive fan of Leona. But most fans have to make do with listening to her tracks not doing a duet with her, the guest added.
Meanwhile, Boyzone band member Stephen Gately, a family pal of John Caudwell, also took to the stage to entertain the birthday girl. (ANI)
