Leona Lewis: 'I called my parents crying in the middle of the night so many times'
Songstress Leona Lewis has revealed that she wanted to write her parents a song to thank them for all the times they answered the phone to her in the middle of the night while she was crying.
Speaking to The Sun newspaper, the 'Bleeding Love' sensation admitted that she has been through a tough time with her career and would often call home at unsociable hours, but luckily her family have been incredibly supportive:
"They thought me calling them in the middle of the night crying was going to end when I was a baby, but apparently it goes on into my 20s, probably into my 30s, 40s and for ever. I wanted to write a song for them and just say thank you, because they've been there a lot for me for the past couple of years."
Lewis went onto add that although the low points were hard to handle, she has been able to turn them into points of inspiration: "I feel like a lot of the low points were actually the biggest inspirations, so it's really taught me to be just as thankful for the lows as I am for the highs."
On April 14, the superstar treated fans to a showcase of her new album with an intimate gig at London's Hospital Club and performed 5 songs from her upcoming new record. Writing about the event on Twitter, she admitted it was a lot of fun: "Thank you to everyone who came and shared last night with me, I loved it."
