Leona Lewis - EchoThis 24-year-old singer is living a charmed life. Catapulted from Pizza Hut waitress to a lucrative recording career thanks to her win on British TV’s The X Factor, Leona sold over six million copies of her debut album, Spirit, with the help of svengali-mentors Simon Cowell and Clive Davis. Her followup is filled with more big-lunged ballads like “Happy” and “Can’t Breathe” and such cheesy Euro-dance numbers as “Outta My Head.” Like fast food, her album tingles the taste buds but lacks any lasting nourishment.
