Amazing voice, unoriginal song!,
This review is from: A Moment Like This (Audio CD)
Leona has this amazing voice, right up their with Whitney Houston, Mariah Carey, etc (which for some crazy reason certain people see as a negative!! But how many people do you know of that have that amount of power in their voice?). She has real talent that is rarely seen from the UK (Hackney, no less!) and she has the potential to be hugely famous. However, it all depends on the songs that she's given. I really do hope that she doesn't end up doing a load of covers or dull songs like other X-factor contestants have in the past.
Kelly Clarkson released this song after she won American Idol, so for Leona to be given the same song is disappointingly unoriginal (though it's interesting to compare with the Kelly Clarkson version - IMO Leona sounds better). So for Leona's impressive voice I give this single 4 stars (it loses a mark because of the song).
