Leona Lewis has launched her new single, Bleeding Love, at a private party in London on Monday night.

The 22-year-old songstress – who was wearing a pretty white dress – belted out four songs, including the new single that hits the shops on October 22.

Friends and family attended the event at a central London hotel and Leona’s mentor Simon Cowell sent a televised message telling her she would be ‘a star’.

It’s been almost a year since the X Factor winner’s debut single, A Moment Like This, was released, smashing records by selling 50,000 downloads within 30 minutes. Leona became the biggest selling female debut artist of all time.

The singer is making a comeback with the single and she also has a slot on an X Factor special lined up in October.

She’ll also be releasing her debut album, of which she said recently: “You’ll be surprised. There’s a lot of ballads but there are some good mid-tempo songs. There’s something for everyone.”
