CLIVE DAVIS and SIMON COWELL will partner to supervise the international debut album by 21-year-old British artist LEONA LEWIS, the first female winner of BRITAIN's TV show "The X Factor." DAVIS and COWELL will work together in a first-of-its-kind partnership on both song and producer selection for the CD, to be released in late summer on J/SYCO RECORDS. COWELL created and serves as a judge for the TV show.
"LEONA is so talented that when she showcased for our best songwriters in L.A. right before the GRAMMYS, she received a tumultuous reception," DAVIS said. "SIMON COWELL and I will have a great time working together on her album."
COWELL said, "LEONA is one of the most gifted singers I have ever come across, and it is an honor to work alongside CLIVE."
