Leona Lewis Offered $2 Million For Gig
(starpulse.com) - British singing sensation Leona Lewis is reportedly set to score a huge $2 million fee for any future personal appearances - putting her in the same league as legendary former Beatle Paul McCartney .
The Bleeding Love star has enjoyed a meteoric rise to fame since winning U.K. talent show The X Factor in 2006 - and can demand huge amounts of cash to perform intimate gigs for wealthy fans. The star has been offered a $2 million personal appearance fee to play a small set for an unknown bidder, according to Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper.
A source tells the publication, "Leona is one of the most sought after stars around. She has little say in the fee charges - big money sponsors literally name their fee and her management respond accordingly. She is adamant much of the profit goes straight back to her favorite charities."
Lewis, who has hit the top spot in both the U.K. and U.S. album charts with her debut LP Spirit , is reportedly worth $12 million - but gives most of her money away to charity organizations.
